  1. Jesus, you can get an XPS 15 with a 1650, 6C/12T 9750H, 8GB 2666, and 256GB for $1,449. 13" MBPs don't even approach that level of performance and can easily surpass that price. 

     

    The new 10th Gen 13" MBPs only get you 4C/8T, Iris Graphics, 16GB 3733, and 512GB for $1800. 

     

    Apple basically charges $400 for a better screen, trackpad, speakers at the cost of performance and 0 upgrades.

      @DrMacintosh i constantly hear apple fans make the argument of well it won't stop working so it's fine, no it isn't fine. by doing this perfectly good hardware ends up in landfill which is bad for the environment and bad for the consumer because they need to buy a new computer purely because of apple's unsupporting. 

       

      the Big Sur drop has nothing to do with Metal. they dropped all 2012 Mac's and some 2013 models, all of those are capable of running Metal and were supported under Mojave and Catalina.

      Then it simply is just Apple reducing the supported product line. 

       

      For a company that warranties, services, and replaces these machines all on their own, a reasonable cutoff date for support is expected. 

       

      If the consumer does not like the idea that there computer will eventually be dropped from support, maybe they should not buy a Mac. I personally don't really care since I wouldn't expect my PC to run the latest OS 8 years from now even if it could technically support it.

      8 years isn't that long you know. a 2012 15" MBP outperforms your 13" 2017 in almost every benchmark. 

       

      regardless they can class systems as vintage which means they don't get hardware support anymore and still update them to the latest OS. but they don't. i get that you are kinda blinded by entitlement but not just everyone can buy a completely new machine every 4 years, and even if they can they might not want to spend that money for that.
