You're all retarded.

Gosh darn dude you don't need retina on the 13.3 version

Still makes me laugh how upset people get when other people use ANYTHING other than GNU/Linux.

i had a turion in an hp pavillion once, 5 fucking years ago

Admittedly a better deal than a chromebook but compared to an mbp what the fuck?
>>
>>45487791
comes stock eOS lmao
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed my experience with eOS, but I would have never guess a laptop would come with it.

>>45487823
You can set a custom resolution with third party software in OS X and compare the differences. It's huge.
>>
>>45488153

I'm doing basic programming and video editing. Nothing with the need for retina, I believe
>>
>>45488171
That sounds reasonable. I read text or program on my computer all day so this screen helps my eyes not bleed.
>>
MMOs are not fun.
>>
>>45488261
Not anymore

I actually use all 3 operating systems regularly. I have been using macbooks for the 3rd year in a row now daily as education-assigned laptops. Using a pretty shmick air this year. I use linux at home as my day-to-day os, occasionally go in to my xp dual boot if i want to play a game or something.

A mac laptop is the only apple machine I would consider buying. I wouldn't say their superior but theyre pretty nice to use. I love going through a full day of use and having 85% of charge left, and a really good trackpad to use.

apple desktops are shit for obvious reasons. iphones are okay for old people, shit for many people.

but in a perfect world id have a lenovo laptop with a lightweight linux distro installed.
>>
>>45487507
I second that.

LOL - that's a hunk of shit
>>
>>45489140
you can watch porn on it
>>
>>45487937

Linux honestly sucks buttholes as a desktop. As a server, it's perfect. As a primary desktop/laptop, it's just used by autists that like to be different.
>>
>>45488261
MMOs are the worst type of games in the gaming community.
why?

>>45487702

>2014
>looking at specs

Most computers in 2006 could do everything most people want to do now. Specs are irrelevant today except for niche markets.
>>
>>45489184
Youre still living in the 2000s my old friend.
>>
>>45487486
Congrats, you're retarded
>>
>>45489156

I could also watch porn on my 1995 emachine, but that didn't stop it from also being a hunk of shit.
>>
>>45489251
the last (only) MMO I've ever played on anything resembling a regular basis was ps2.

>pay2win
check.
>cringeworthy roleplayers
not really, but there were plenty of people who took it too srs
>gear > skill
yeh, although numbers > gear > skill
>no skill to play.
check.
>>
>>45489203
This. Unless your video or music editing buy any computer right now will work for the rest of your life. If you're gaming, and you're over the age of sixteen, go fuck yourself you worthless manchild.

>Longtime Windows and Linux user
>and Linux

No you aren't little boy.

>surprisingly good

Retards gonna retard.

There's a reason why all the most skilled programmed and hackers not only use Macs, but prefer them..(l)users will be (l)users. Can't expect much from users. God bless sysadmins.

Why are you surprised? Because you are a completely technologically illiterate little shit who thinks he knows way more than he actually does?

Macs are, by far, the best overall workstation/desktop in existence. Everything about the system is miles beyond other systems.
>>
>>45489169
>>45489560 here. I'm gonna go ahead and take a handle so I can bitch at you little kids.

Obviously you know shit about servers.

All these fucking little kids man.


You should never believe anything anyone says on here. Every. Because everyone drives a bugatti and dates super models. That said, I actually have 10 years experience in operations, doing Unix and Linux administration. I moved on since then.

The best server OS back then, is still the best server OS now.. at least most robust. Look, I love Linux. I'm running it right now..and it has come a LONG way. My RHEL 7 system are really impressive. Still.. Solaris is (probably) the most robust Unix server money can buy. Period. Linux still hasn't caught all the way up in many areas.
>>
>>45489612
WOW! I read your post TEN (10) times!
Please post more like these!
>>
Have hardware that's OS X compatible now and I'm thinking about installing OS X on here instead of Ubuntu just for the slight increase in game compatibility. The only problem is I can't seem to get a working VM in Ubuntu 14.04 to make an OS X install USB with Clover.
>>
>>45490023
Oh nevermind, figured it out. Had to change the hardware ID of my CPU. Now I can set up this VM and create a proper installer for my actual desktop. To those who have used both, what differences can I expect?
>>
>>45487486
what does a picture from 4 years ago have to do with anything? just a reminder that wotlk was the golden age of wow?

Welp, I at least believe that you are old.

Burning Crusade squeezed out every last bit of enjoyment I was capable of feeling towards that soul sucking game.
