Ye Macce Threade

Recommended Posts

Black is back.

I noticed some interesting stuff... no native AV1 encode (decode only), no Thunderbolt 5 (yet), no Wi-Fi 7.

The lower prices are a good sign. Most of the MacBook Pros ars still unaffordable for a lot of people, though.

And thank goodness the iMac was updated... very welcome and good for those who were holding out.

We'll see in a few days whether the performance claims are verified by reviewers and new owners.

Yep, all rumours point towards a 32" iMac Pro which shouldn't be out anytime soon. They want the iMac to be their all in one entry level computer for home use. Probably I don't need more than that, but a 27" display is something that I'd like.

Yes, a 27" iMac isn't an extreme ask.

They haven't announced M3 updated MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Studio, or Mac Pro yet either, so it's possible more products are coming down the pipe in a few months.

It would make sense to put the new M3 Pro and Max chips in an updated 27" iMac as the performance gains appear to be very impressive in some apps.

This is interesting. I have no read on how this thing is going to do in 5-10 years time. Could see it flopping hard, could also see it succeeding. Obviously the price is going to need to come down a lot, but the product does seem at least a little compelling.

I wish AAPL more success with their VR widget than The Zucc had with his.  I also wouldn't shed a tear if Zucc slipped and fell into the gaping maw of Halemaʻumaʻu.  I still have no interest in VR.  I'm mostly blind in one eye and I've learned that I can get motion sick.  My limited experience with VR gear has been meh at best.

Also I helped an elder Vineyarder buy herself a new MacBook Air this past week.  Apple makes it an absolute PITA to get a decent config.  They wanted to sell her a model with 8GB of unified RAM like it was 2010.  I was able to get her a configuration with 24GB (the max in an Air) and a 1TB SSD.  In classic Apple fashion the cost was more than some MBPs, but she loves the lighter form factor of the Air.  TBH, I don't blame her.
