The picture I saw had the new iMac allowing you to do the same. I suspect their sales had been slipping. We're at an interesting point in evolution because most people have had no real need for a new computer for five years or more. Video editing/rendering and some graphics are the exceptions.
The bastards win again. Come to papa MacBook Pro...
You getting one, Jesse?
I've not really been following but am looking at a new laptop soon. My 2009 MacBook Pro still works fine, a little sluggish. But I need TBolt. My mid 2011 maxed out iMac has been and absolute stalwart and is still going strong. I'm thinking of a new MacBook Pro at some point here for mobile stuff.
Thanks for the reply Kcatt, it's 7 reliable years I've enjoyed which is sensational in Computer land. If something died and it has to soon, it would be silly (I think) to fix it as something else would be liable to go at any time after that.
The biggest issue with my 2010 machine is I'm still on the zero problems Snow Leopard which precludes me from updating software, so pragmatism says update the whole shebang and use a dock to interface FW/USB devices.
They also have a "new" pared back model with no touch bar ( sounds like a way to move old stock) based on the Halliwell chip as opposed to The Kaby lake. It's a 2.2 quad core i7 .
Given that I'm still running a 2010 2.53 dual core i5 with no issues, do i really need to be paying the extra for the high power machine or is it just false economy to think this way.
Anyone care to comment?
Before my late 2013, I had a 2011 13" dual i5. The 2013 quad model smoked tthe 2011.
2.2 quad i7, should be a nice improvement over your current machine, but I personally was on the cusp with my 2.0. I run a lot of hardware, but a lot of plugs too. Best of both worlds.
Bro your machine you just replaced is better than my 2012 and I really don't have issues at all plus I use 32 bit apps... hope you got a smoking deal on it because that new MBP money saved up for another month would have got you easily into $2-3k monitor territory used and there are heavy hitters on the used market in that price range... The new MBP plus m pressor you could have easily got those mm35 with stands bro ... Also those geekbench numbers aren't the only standard for judging processor/ computer performance...
