Apple "Hello again" Live Stream

Here are my biggest downsides for the new MBP.

 

#1. The cost of entry is super high. $2400 starting for 15" is a bit ridiculous Apple.

#2 keyboard using butterfly (its 2.0 so idk how much better it is but 1.0 SUCKS).

#3 No magsafe

#4 No SD card slot

 

Other than that. It's still a really stellar machine. Better screen, better processors, faster storage, better speakers, better trackpad, touch bar and touch ID.

 

Again the biggest thing for me is the cost of entry, seeing how the May 2015 MBPs are still fantastic computers and even more so with their inevitable price drops.

Battery decreased from 74.9 whr for 13 inch to 49.4 whr.

Yet it's still rated at 10 hours (the same-ish as the previous model), and Apple's battery life estimates tend to be fairly representative of what you can expect in real world use.

I'd rather it increased to 15 hours. Mbps were manageable size anyway. Now the Air is pointless. It weighs the same and still has a TN display.

I personally agree, although a lot of people were buying the Air/Macbook because they wanted thinner and lighter. Apple is just giving people what they want -- there were a ton of people who wanted the Air to have a retina display (which is basically what the new 13" is). IMO they Air is only there to offer a cheap option, but it will be completely phased out eventually (replaced by the 12" Macbook/13" MBP).

Anyone noticed both Apple's MacBook Pro and Microsoft Surface Studio Ad, did the same thing. Both of them show color powder explosions, internal layers of the screen, internal hardware, and their main selling feature. Surface Dial from Microsoft and Touch Bar from Apple.

ah yes this is important. I've been wanting an Air with a Retina screen for the longest time and while the new MBP 13" no touchbar is indeed smaller with a retina screen... it has the Pro battery life of 10hrs. I think the MBA's 13" quoted time was 12 hrs and I regularly got 13hrs from web browsing.

Well Microsoft started with the internals view before Apple, if I am not mistaken.. but it isn't Microsoft idea...

I don't know who was first.. but I recall my old laptop from 2008 (the music in the video was crap then if you wonder.. sooo 90's... reminds me of Windows 95/98 or something):

 

Apple commercial.. I don't know... maybe it is just me... but I feel like I am watching a fancy car extended commercial showing me fancy car features. I find it boring.

 

The Surface Studio commercial... well each product Surface commercial gets better and better, but the Studio gave me chills... It was different, unexpected, the camera smooth movement showcase the smooth movement of the hinge system of the device. The ad shows energy and life. I don't know how Microsoft marketing team can up things up further in future ads.

 

But yes, I find it funny that both coincidentally has exploding chalks. I guess it is current trend. Then again I recall seeing many commercials for TV with paint being tossed in slow motion.

That Apple video isn't their commercial, these are their commercials 

Even the reveal is closer to a commercial 

But that video is just a description of the new laptop, it's not a commercial (plus, who has 3.5 min commercials? o.O )

Have a question? Please, don't hesitate to ask me over PM or on Twitter @Bladeof_Grass

I'm sorry Apple, but please go shove it. (assuming this is actually true)

 

No 32GB option because.........Battery life

Quote

 

To put more than 16GB of fast RAM into a notebook design at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook. I hope you check out this new generation MacBook Pro, it really is an incredible system.

 

Apparently the email was confirmed by 9to5 to have come from Phil Schiller and was responding to a customer email....which honestly seems a bit fishy, but...
