Reminder that the only acceptable laptop size is either 11" or 12", with an external display when you're at home.

Everything else is "portable" desktop tier and your money is better spent in an iMac.

Just bought a base model 13" Retina with education discount. I probably did good. I mean it's at least an upgrade to the 2011 Acer I was using.

Anyone else noticing Apple clearly has the B team working on OSX. So much stuff from iOS is implemented horribly in OS X. On the other hand, where the fuck is system wide linkedin support in iOS?

you'll be fine. 4GB macbook airs are still the norm. memory requirements of OSX don't change drastically gen to gen and even then OSX is incredibly good at swapping shit in and out of disk. i guess it helps this when you have a 1500mb/s SSD drive too

I was thinking of getting a few of those Core2duo macbooks with the plastic shells from years ago for cheap off of eBay prettying them up a bit, make sure they work, and then hustle some normies during tax season with them for $400 each. which ones do you macfags recommend for this, that run the closest to current version of OSX?
>>
>>52307715
>free hardware
what?
>>
>>52307506
Except the 128GB SSDs are fucking slow compared to 256/512. Look some benchmarks. You should have shelled out those extra hundred bucks.

So I use a MBP at work for iOS development and I actually enjoy it a lot. But I'm hoping I'll be getting another job soon, which means I have to give the MBP back. Is the base Mac Mini good enough to run xCode and the usual stuff?

Mid-2014 13" rMBP. Programs which would routinely beachball, stutter, and lag under OS X (Firefox, mpd, C compilers) run perceptibly faster and better under Linux.

I need to plug in to ethernet (USB adapters lol) and run a script to reinstall wifi drivers every time I get a new kernel, and the webcam doesn't work, but the wifi is Broadcom's fault and the webcam just means the NSA can't use it to spy on me.

How the hell does a retard even get up to a position like that.

Doing anything on hardware from oh this decade and all you'll need is ssh into unix servers for maintenance rdp for windows servers and a windows vm for development.

Didn't want to make a new thread for this but I need some help.

I got an iphone 6 plus with an unlimited everything plan as a company phone. I'm thinking of cancelling my current phone plan and just using this phone. However, it says "This iphone is supervised by x company". Would they be able to see what I search and the apps I use? As well as the information inside it? I.e. facebook, twitter, instagram.

I know they can track it on the computers we use, but I'm not sure if they'd be able to do that on the phone.

Nope. You have to open them in VLC or Infuse. It's bullshit.
