This is a discussion thread for the "13.3" MacBook Pro Specs Leaked" story posted on the front page.
Wow...for the price you'll pay to get those specs...I laugh at you.
Except for the USB 3 and Thunderbolt, my 6 month old HP laptop has the same specs. And it cost me far less than this "new" macbook.
Seriously? I was expecting a way better display like rumored, I hope thats the base model too. We should be moving towards SSD drives as well.
You know, it's possible they could offer this as a low-end option...say, maybe $999. And have thinner, lighter, retina versions for the other models. Or, maybe Retina will only be for 15" models.
I'll just leave this here from the article:
This isn't a very credible source either. It's a Chinese forum post thingy. I highly
Doubt this is real.
This sucks; that's all I'll say.
Oh. It increased by 1 GHz.
WOW, just $999 on the low end?? What a steal!
My 15.6" HP with the same specs (As mentioned, no USB3 or Thunderbolt) cost just under HALF that!!!
I guess I just have a hard time seeing why someone would happily shell out that kind of money when they can get the SAME specs cheaper. Hell, buy a nice laptop for half the cost, and take other half to:
- Do some SERIOUSLY sick upgrades to make an even better system.
- Take a vacation.
- A crap load of other stuff to bring yourself happiness.
Lots of reasons people pay for Macs. I'm not going to list them bc it isn't the time or place for a war.
