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.

Have fun with your proprietary shackles
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?
I'd still at least like to try avoiding it.
Graphic design, video editing in class ect. Got a desktop for when shit needs to get done. Plus uni has a farm of dual xeon workstations for when shit really needs to get done. So I'm not hurting for performance.
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?
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?
Pencil dick devices for pencil dick customers.
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.
>"too many ports"
Ahhh reminds me of good times with my old retarded boss.

>NO FUCKING ETHERNET PORT LEL
>"why can't I admin over wifi?"
>gee dunno maybe it's cause both the fact that you're resetting the router anyway and it won't keep that info, and some of these are business class and disable admin over wifi for security

$35 T60 versus a $2000 "new" macbook air. for fucking IT administration. hurr muh fuckin portssss
nice story but that's a specialized user case.
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.
>needing more than one port is a specialized user case
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.

>not using Homebrew to install the official GNU Compiler Collection
You did this to yourself.
>buying macbook right before massive architecture leap
nice1 m8 you should have just waited until march, at the very least you could have gotten the same model you just purchased for a couple hundred less.
What do with this shit?
It's currently bootcamped with win7
