Why does Apple hate the Macbook Air??

Apple wasn’t even expected to HAVE an event this Spring, but they surprised us by not only doing one, but announcing new iPads, iMacs, and more!

There's a solid following of people who buy macbook airs (mostly intel) in here and apple honestly treat them like second class citizens with the repair times, which is awful.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Yeah but the average Apple consumer will happily pay $400 for an Apple original stand compared to a $20-$30 one off amazon with the same features but not from Apple.

Wrong, the Apple stand is paired to the Secure Enclave on the M1. It comes with an intergrated stand btw.

The soldered SSD, Macbook Air level of motherboard and cooling and IO make this thing pretty dumb

I find it astonishing that Apple are now using the same M1 chip (well, two variants of it anyway) in five separate machines; they really are making the most of the R&D costs involved in developing these.

 

As for the new iMacs, it's fair to say that they are pretty much overgrown iPads at this point (albeit without touch), but I'm sure they will be very nice to use. I just think that they should have opted for matching colors for the display bezel - the white is kind of ugly imho.

If you're expecting any user upgradable parts on the Apple Silicon machines, you're very much not going to like post-Intel Apple.

the lack of 2.5 or 5gb lan on the imac is sad. It less than 10$ to add and it would make them a much more interesting buy for video editors.
I'm happy to see that the mac mini M1 finally has 10gb lan.

So uh, the new iMac is not the first time a desktop Mac has had an external power brick. The first generation (in terms of physical design) Mac mini used a power brick. Both of mine do, a 2005 PPC and 2007 Intel.

 

I do find it interesting that they are putting the ethernet in the brick. I wonder, though - is that parallel conductors in the same cable (not great for signal noise induction), or are they modulating the network signal through the power conductors themselves somehow?

I guarantee someone will do a teardown and show everyone.

Perhaps iFixit will do a teardown.

I have the M1 MacBook Air and given how small and densely built it is, I am OK with a soldered SSD. I hoped they wouldn't be dicks with machines where this doesn't matter, but apparently they are.
