Full, honest review of Apple October MacBook Air, Mac Mini, iPad Pro update.



153- A wide-ranging philosophical soup of happiness and angst as I weigh in on the new MacBook Air, Mac mini and iPad Pro. I have a long history with Apple and their products. I hate Apple because I love them. The supreme neglect of the Mac line has been painful for me to comment on. Has Apple responded to Mac lovers who can’t afford an iMac Pro? I want to know.

    $1299 for an 8700, 8GB RAM, 256GB PCIe storage (960 Pro speeds), Thunderbolt 3 & cooling all pre-assembled in a nice case, BT+WiFi working with iOS devices, warrantied and able to be regularly updated with some resale value is not that bad, tbh. Factor in approximately $100 for the T2 chip and an equivalent Hackintosh would cost around $900+. The time you spend researching, building, troubleshooting, backing up, cloning & testing a hack is easily worth $300 plus the additional storage you need for clone drives. All told long-term, you're probably only spending $100 more for this than building it yourself.

    Most computer enthusiasts know not to buy RAM from Apple and that, along with 2TB storage, make up the bulk of the $4,200 price point. With TB3, you have no real reason not to get external storage for everything but the OS and apps. I have most of Adobe's Creative Cloud, a few DAWs, numerous plugins like those from Waves and Native Instruments, along with general day-to-day software and I only use about 125GB storage.

    I've been strongly considering hackintoshing for a few years now. In the meantime, I've been saving up for a new system. My opinion is that this new Mac Mini is a viable contender against that route. Maybe you have different needs, expectations & wants and that's ok.

    The iPad is about 100X more iconic than the Mac- you are just so old your brain can't comprehend evolution. If Steve was around and he saw this video he'd call you the biggest dumb ass on earth. iPad and iPad Pro are replacing the Mac. You can either accept that reality or get left in the dust. People absolutely love iPad and iPad Pro. The Mac doesn't even come CLOSE at all in sales, power, architecture, portability. Literally in no way does a Mac compare to an iPad. You have absolutely no concept of reality or where we are. Absolutely clueless to what's going on around you lol.

    Think Mac: ThinkPad hardware useability with the useability of Mac OS. (I would run Linux, but Mac OS is OK.)

    Also known as:how to use a MacBook: MY PRECIOUS dongles and glossy MacBook and keyboard and oh darn the keyboard doesn't work at least I can brag about the thinness to PC pleb over there

    ThinkPad: carry some place, do work, leave.

    Apple, can we have useable hardware?

    They are getting closer and closer to coming out with an ARM based mac. That is why they keep mentioning the iPad is faster than 92% of laptops. I am predicting by 2020 it will happen.

    I'm SO tempted to make a Hackintosh after seeing Apple's horrific showing in NYC. And I bet you anything that when / if Apple moves to using thier own CPU's, someone will find a way around that too. People have already found ways of using AMD's Ryzen CPU to run Mac OS.

    When they manage to inject iPads to all macOS users they'll realize Apple Apps are made with macOS and not iOS. No Macs, no Apps. No Apps, no iOS and no Apple.

    The new minis actually seem like great machines… but I won't buy it at that price. 16GB/512GB should be the starting point.

    Wait you forgot one thing about the Mac Mini. At $4200, you still have to buy a eGPU. LOL At $4200, this Mac Turd does not even have a low end GPU.

    @Peter Paul Chato The ASUS Mini PC PB60 B7064ZD looks interesting. Smaller than the Mac mini, i7 8700T, which seems sensible given the small size/thermal challenges, 256GB flash storage rather than 128GB, 16GB of memory rather than 8GB, albeit 2400Mhz, rather than the Mini's 2666Mhz. Ugly box but perhaps the internals are removable, as in fit-able in a an old Mac Mini case, with some cunning design and 3d printer magic. The big win for the Mini is that Thunderbolt 3, isn't it, for external graphics cards. 

    I don't know, I am really keen to hear about alternatives. Another would be a NUC, ultrabook series CPU but much better integrated graphics on some of them if you want a really small form factor that will double as a Hackmack/Windows box that can game and the i5 and i7 models have Thunderbolt 3, albeit the U-series i5 and i7 CPUs will be a bit of a bottlekneck, there. I am sure there are other possibilities to lead away from the utter despair at Apple's pricing, or more specifically at their not bringing out a budget orientated Mac.

    Now I know what it must have felt like to have been an Apple II user in the late 80's and early 90's when they set that line to fail in favor of the Mac.

    “Like Going back to an abusive lover“. Love that line. Should we start a me to movement? I won’t go further with that for fear of repercussions.
