Why /g/ needs an i7 to shitpost on 4chan?

Performance stagnated during the last 7 years, even a Core2Duo is 100% usable nowadays.

Intel Core M is more than enough for everyday tasks and only consumes 5W.
Thats why the new macbook is a perfect machine for me.
>>
I agree that /g/ isn't giving it enough credit, especially since Apple is really good at squeezing performance out of their components.
>>
It's literally the chromebook of Macs
People who want one will get one and there is nothing you faggots can do about it. Seeing it has only made me want the new MacBook Air. It's a product to make the others look better.

Kind of like the Expensive Apple Watch is making the $500 model look cheaper. Apple isn't dumb they know how to sell to people.

The new macbook should be fine for most tasks, it's the price which is an insult to common sense.

The fact that it has the performance of C2D for $1300 to $1800 is not the only thing wrong with it. It has shitty battery life for just a 5W TDP and being mostly battery on the inside. Also, one port. One fucking port and there are thinner devices with full-sized USB 3.0 ports. It's a shitty product that just insults people's intelligence, except for the retards that will buy it.

Core2Duo?
Dude, PC is an AMD Athlon X2, the original, 2GHz. Shitty performance, my GPU is an IGP Radeon HD3200 and I use it to watch HD movies.
It's not the CPU evolutions is stagnated, the truth is that you don't need more than this for casual use. Why would I bother buying something better? It just works!
>>
>>46976216
Encoding videos are CPU-intensive tasks. And integrated GPU performance varies greatly by chip TDP and clocks.

You're more idiotic that the fag you're quoting,
>>
eh, I really think it is going to take 10nm or 7nm for fanless laptops to hit their stride, I am sure a fair bit of performance issues can be alleviated by custom blocks on the SOC. I think the new Macbook is beautiful, but figure if I wait until 10nm (2016) USB-C will be the norm for new devices, HVEC blocks will enable 4K playback and encoding with no issues, maybe Apple we put a better webcam in, and better graphics.

I don't need an i7 to shitpost on 4chan. I need an i7 to handle my natural language processing assignments. They are seriously computationally intensive, especially given that they are done in languages like Ruby and Python, rather than native code.

>>46975974

This new Core Y is super decent, performance is between a Haswell i3 and i5, but now you don't need a fan and it consumes less energy, which means more battery life (or thinner laptops).

It's not for me since I need performance for Video/Audio editing and casual gaming, that's why I have a rMBP.

But if I were to choose a laptop for a student, my parents or someone that will use the machine to edit text files or watch youtube videos, it would be this macbook.

Shitposting from my cr-48 running an Intel Atom.

I have a custom built FX-9590/R9 290x workstation at home, and a 2013 MBA (256gb SSD).

If I do any studio work, I use the MacBook Air. Sure the screen color accuracy is shit, but once I see that lighting and exposure is on point, it just serves as the vessel that holds my photos. I'll tether to it and it's powerful enough to dump the tether captures straight to an external.

I think that many of you underestimate how powerful processors are now. This new MacBook literally satisfies an entire market of computer users that most of you ironically now fit into. I bet this thing can even play fucking CS.

A Pro just doesn't appeal to me. I bought the MBA for the battery life, which is severely diminished on the Pro line.
Plus I don't game on it, so I don't need a discrete GPU, nor the better CPU, so paying >$400 more seemed pointless.
I actually tried out the MBA and rMBP side by side when I purchased mine. The UI was so much smoother on the MBA.
Granted I was comparing display models, but I compared the Activity Monitor on both machines, and both were using more
or less the same amount of resources.
