I missed this post from Archintosh last Thursday. Let’s hope that this design is a hint for a return of a ‘modular’ design for the Mac Pro next week…
Personally, if I find a huge offer for a “can-generation” MacPro, I’ll take it since it’s perfect for my home-server needs. Time will tell what comes.
Horace Dediu wrote a super-interesting piece in the aftermath of the latest Apple Event of Tuesday 11 Sept. … I suggest its reading to all the technology / marketing interested people, and also to second think to the concepts he brilliantly has exposed.
I recently returned to the 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro after a year away.
I thought it would feel like a downgrade, or like going back in time. I feared that it would feel thick, heavy, and cumbersome. I expected it to just look impossibly old.
It feels as delightful as when I first got one in 2012. It’s fast, capable, and reliable. It gracefully does what I need it to do. […]
It feels like a professional tool, made by people who love and need computers, at the top of their game.
It helps us perform our work, rather than adding to our workload.
This is the peak. This is the best laptop that has ever existed.
I hope it’s not the best laptop that will ever exist.
