Recently bought a pentelobe driver to open up my rMBP of a few years. It's a fucking marvel of design and engineering inside. I was sorta' disappointed that it hadn't collected any dust, so there was no reason to open it.

>>52672006
Iris Pro is a very good iGPU you can't deny this. Also Intel arguably has the best linux drivers.
>>
>>52672041
And the internal one is replaceable without voiding warranty or having to use dissolving fluids.
>>
>>52672031
Iris Pro is still the fastest integrated graphics out there, it beats every AMD's APU (Apu's are much cheaper, but still)
>>
>>52671767
the thinkpad looks more aesthetically pleasing to me.

i don't know, it just like to know where stuff is.
>>
>>52672031
In any case dedicated graphics plus standard integrated graphics should be better for both battery life and performance, right?
>>
Where do the games go?
>>
Isn't it ironic that opening a Mac voids the warranty, while opening a Thinkpad is in the manual?

So they literally did this only for the ads?

We are talking about the 15 inch, which comes with 16GB standard fag.

every 15 inch macbook comes with a quad-core i7

Now that's a good poor-man's argument.

Also why would you even open your macbook while on warranty if Apple will fix it for free?

Poor-man's logic
>>
>>52672085
But how much difference is there vs. the regular 'Iris' (no 'Pro') graphics? AFAIK the processing hardware is the same, the difference is the cache.

If you actually watched the video with sound on: He did everything beforehand, the video is just the end result of his hard and messy work.
>>
>>52672185
Think about it as something you'll probably be using for at least 3 years. That's under a buck fifty a day.

Thinking about it that way, I sorta' regret not buying a maxed out MBP.

>>52672253
he literally just removed a few screws to take out the back plate.

>>52672185
I'm going to but the T460p once it's out.

Likely going to cost over $2500
>>
>>52672085
Are you kidding? Intel never reach AMD's APU...
>>
>>52672317
Again , WATCH the video with SOUND ON.

The batteries are glued on.
You can't remove them just like that.
First you have to dissolve the glue (or sticky pads as he calls them) and pry them loose one by one.

It looks easy becasue he already loosened the batteries, which is the hard part.

Everything is relative, isn't it?

A poor person will think $2000 is a lot of money and will prioritize spending.

Someone that's better-off financially will think $2000 isn't really that much money.

Do you not understand this, and how much it says about you?

Do you have an extra 21st chromosome or something?

I enjoy macfags defending shitty non-removable RAM & battery. they're like the highest level of retarded.

My laptops:
Lenovo G570. Upgraded CPU to i7, ram to 8GB, 512GB ssd as boot, 2TB samsung as data. I have also replaced the full casing, as it suffered from the lenovo hinge problem. Reinforced hinges with 6 M3-16 bolts, nylock nuts. Added internal hub with a 600mbs network card and dstv receiver, tucked into the optical drive caddy.

Macbook pro, late 2008. Upgraded to 8gb ram, boot drive is 256gb ssd, data drive is 1tb samsung, scratch drive is 128gb expressport.
Also modded bottom shell with 2 vents for extra cooling, with removable filters.

I have no major complaints. They just work great for me.

>inb4 yadda yadda old tech, win vs. mac meme, muh gaymes

Even if I had 4000$+ to spend on 2 bleeding edge laptops, I would rather spend the cash on something else. I simply do not need anything better than what I have.
>>
If one wanted to play games, what's the better value:

Spend $1000 on a nice laptop, and $1000 on a desktop, or spend $2000 on a really high end laptop?

The only addon you can use reliably in the express port on Macbooks is eSATA connectors.

Nope. On my old macbook I used SSD's, USB 3.0 adaptors and a card reader.

You probably just don't have the mindset to actually search for the correct drivers or installation methods, or you probably bought cheap chink shit which wouldn't work on any laptop, regardless of manufacturer.

Dont feel bad, you're just not a tech person. I'm sure there are other things you are good at.
