  1. Microsoft isn't officially supporting anything older than Intel 8th gen, or Ryzen 2xxx cpu's. You can do a clean install of Windows 11, but you might not receive updates.
  2. What do they mean by "on shelves" ? On retailer shelves so consumers can actually buy them? I doubt that because any GPU that can mine are being bought up by scalpers and miners. Also since they're being made on TSMC, I don't expect an Intel GPU to be easily available.
  3. I think they already explained why all gaming on mac would be a bad thing, you would lose all freedom to put together your own hardware. And even worse, maintain or upgrade your hardware. When AMD released Ryzen, a faster, more efficient CPU with more cores than Intel, that was great because the platform is still x86 and it brought true competition by forcing Intel to increase their core count and performance. There isn't any competition with Apple, if you want an M1 mac and you are in the walled garden ecosystem of apple then you're going to have to buy a mac, if your work or games needs
  4. If the leaks are real then I don't see the point of the performance and E cores if overclocking causes the CPU to be a space heater. I mean sure if you're a pro CSGO player then you wouldn't care, but modern GPU's already use 300W+ and you'll at least maybe need a 360mm AIO to keep the CPU cool.
  5. $99 for 6 months, and you'll need a decent internet connection, this seems like a waste of money IMO. And I think it seems kinda suspicious that graphics cards have been unavailable for most people, yet Nvidia has enough of them to start a cloud rental service. This seems like a slippery slope for Nvidia to keep raising prices of GPU's, then get consumers that can't afford to purchase a dedicated GPU to pay for cloud services.
  6. I'm not sure where using the outline of a logo falls on copyright or trademark, but it's still the logo. And dbrand revised their darkplates with fan grille cutouts to generate some hype from their fans, but I think that seems like dbrand realized they screwed up and broke the law with their original side panels.
  7. HP provides part replacement video guides, which is nice if you want to see it taken apart also.
  8. The F1 car analogy is weird, F1 cars can only be used for racing, the engines have to be replaced after a few races, the engine oil is specially formulated for high RPM racing, and F1 cars have worse 0-60 acceleration than a road car. Nvidia, AMD, and Intel on the other hand while less efficient like a road car, can be used for many tasks, and can be upgraded with a ton of aftermarket parts. On the topic though, no Apple isn't comparable to an AMD or Intel CPU , if you want a M1 powered macbook you are running software that works with it, if you need windows and applications that use
  9. Nah the cloth is sold separately so apple can say they care about the environment.
  10. If a display gets damaged by using anything but their cloth, then it should be included with the display. I'd rather buy a pack of random microfiber cloths, I don't see how it would be a waste either since a microfiber cloth can be used to clean a lot of things. But I don't see why anyone would spend $19 on a cleaning cloth.
  11. Exactly, no apple approved service would provide board level BGA chip swapping, iirc apple approved stores aren't even allowed to have parts on hand. There still are bad design choices, that notch is ugly, other laptop companies can still fit a face camera in a very small bezel without needing to cut a notch into the screen. And going by the mac address video thumbnail on these macbooks you can see " MAGSAFE! PORTS!". So yeah people are swooning over ports that apple had previously taken away for years. More features is always better, and if there was a USB-A port it woul
  12. I think a lot of it is because apple added ports back, which is interesting because so many people defended apple over dongles for so long, now you get more port features and people are getting exciting over something that shouldn't have been taken away. A HDMI port and a SD card slot is nice, but still not good enough as there should be a USB-A port if this laptop is for "pro" users.
  13. Yeah dbrand definitely did provoke Sony into sending a C&D order, maybe Sony would've left dbrand alone if they didn't have the stupid childish attitude basically asking to get sued. Sony could also be providing themselves legal protection if they decide to sell a black version of the PS5, although not sure how I feel about Sony threatening a lawsuit when they don't offer a PS5 with black side plates, its kind of like a car manufacturer suing a third party manufacturer for replacement parts the car manufacturer isn't selling.
  14. The microfiber used to come with the laptop, now apple has the courage to charge $19 for it lol.
  15. Well it's not like you could replace a screen before, but yeah that 1TB SSD is ridiculous though I doubt most people would need it. And Apple finally realized what HDMI and a SD card slot is. "the notch doesn't block anything". Except full screen content and any app that isn't accounting for a silly notch.
