  1. Just so we're all clear; this would have been a design choice by Apple to ensure that the laptop was comfortable to use for extended durations away from the desk where it may be sitting on your lap, or otherwise. Not Apple deliberately gimping the laptop to sell more pro devices.
  2. AMD could secure capacity with Samsung for next gen parts, it's not like they're bound completely to TSMC.
  3. I don't see a problem with the subscription model as a way of reducing the barrier to entry for advanced features that are constantly under development. I do, however, have an issue with BMW's approach to making heated seats, Apple CarPlay, and AWD systems subscription based when they're not adding any value whatsoever overtime and the significant costs are already included in the vehicle (unless the vehicle is discounted to reflect the fact that they're not included in the original purchase).
  4. This generation of reference designs from Nvidia is baller. Best looking cards I've ever seen.
  5. While everyone enjoys different games for different reasons, I have to say that Witcher 3 is by far the best RPG that I've played to date. The story is diverse, detailed, and enthralling, and the graphics are spectacular IMO. I did find that when I first played it the first 10 or so levels were the hardest and it took a few hours and a youtube video to get into, but once I got going I couldn't stop. I still remember loading into the world and getting curb stomped by the first monster I came across. And the werewolf.
  6. Also known as constructive dismissal, and very much illegal.
  7. I don’t think we can comment on the price until we get our hands on it to listen. Feature wise, I think these are class leading compared to the Bose and Sony equivalent. $550 isn’t that much for me personally, I paid almost $2000 for my LCD-3 which is just 2-channel and $499 for my computer headset with spatial audio. if it can best it’s competitors in noise cancellation and sound performance I’d buy it.
  8. Microsoft will only sell Windows ARM to OEMs that pre-install.
  9. I'm really liking the rollout plan by Apple. Start with the low-end hardware, the people who only need up to 16GB RAM. Light gaming, office work, some photo editing, etc. This will give devs time to come to grips with the base-line hardware, and time for them to rollout updates and patches to their software in time for the release of the next chip and refresh of the professional tools, such as the 16" MBP, and iMac with the Mac Pro to follow last with M2X.
  10. No, you'll be fine. The 5600X is capable of being paired with the latest 6800XT and 3080, particularly at 1440p and higher.
  11. Don't forget the Harmony 88" OLED with motorised floor stand. https://www.bang-olufsen.com/en/televisions/beovision-harmony Yeah, I have to say, not usually worth the price... but seeing one in person does make you feel special. Just FYI, they've always had a strong relationship with LG so basically what you're buying here is the best-of-the-best LG has to offer, paired with exquisite design, craftmanship, mechanical, and audio engineering.
  12. I use 10G on the daily, both in the office and at home... between my security cameras and plex server with 1gbps internet I can saturate a 10G link. At work it’s super easy, we have a bunch of engineers and graphic designers editing off a local NAS + SQL databases and local backups.
  13. At least warships are running XP, my old workplace had business critical systems on 3.1 and DOS.
  14. Hey, so I heard you like emulation on your M1 so we are emulating windows 32 bit on x64-x86 and then emulating x86 using Rosetta 2 to run on ARM so we can play TF2 on your MBA.
