that shilling is beyond good and evil.

But yeah, when it comes to battery life you won't find anything better than apple.

>reinvents the laptop again
and fails miserably again
>>
If I remember correctly, there are some modern thinkpads that have 2 batteries - one external and one somewhat weak internal battery. You can hot swap out the battery without having to plug it in, thus allowing you to use the laptop for days at a time if you carry a few extra batteries with you. Good for someone who needs to take his laptop with him anywhere, even in the middle of the fucking Sahara.

It's called the Chromebook Pixel 2.

No.

These, excluding the surface all shit on the macbooks recreationally.

>>47519719
sure, making huge batteries instead of actual power, it's perfect to check social networks the whole day

I'm not talking about that piece of shit in ops pic. I'm refering to the macbook pro.

you mean every ultrabook in the market?

Wow you're so cool anon

>>47523259
What's wrong with the surface? I'm wanting to buy one or at least one with all the features it has but made by apple.

I'm a medical student and the app store is phenomenal with extremely accurate and interactive apps. The only issue is no way to really use note taking apps or even styli that do not ruin the ipads screen.
>>
Huh, i was under the impression they were all making viable macbook air alternatives

At least thats what the apple drones have been bitching about since the air released, how every other computer company is copying their design

For one thing it doesn't even have a fucking hinge on the keyboard, making it the most uncomfortable shit in the world to use on your lap. It's gimmicky garbage, get a real laptop.
>>
>>47521455
You can easily install a 1TB PCI card inside, try that with a soldered logic board.
>>
>>47523489
Don't use laptops on your lap if you value your testicles. Don't use a tablet on your lap, use a table on a desk.
>>
>>47523511
How? The Pixel doesn't have any msata/m2/pci slots. It uses a soldered SSD.
>>
>>47521455
>I am going to pre-emptively dismiss relevant objections without explanation or justification

the word "no" does not invalidate anything, stupid. and you didn't even mention the shitty keyboard.
>>
>>47523489
>2015
>using laptop on your lap

Its more of a safety feature than anything, honestly
>>
how can i update my ubuntu kernel thing to version 4 ?
>>
>>47523514
Been using laptops on my lap for over a decade, and I have kids, so you're pretty retarded.
>>

who the hell keeps their laptop over their genitals anyway, that's way too close.
>>
>>47523584
>>noisy fan
How Can Fans Be Noisy If They Don't Exist??
>>
>>47523546
Because people have a steady, supported, flat surface they pull out of their asses anywhere they are. Just shut the fuck up.
>>
>>47523597
Macbook Air has a fan.

>>
>>47523563
The exhaust heat from the laptop doesn't have proper ventilation on the lap. This means that heat goes into the thighs and surrounding area. The testicles are extremely sensitive to temperature and the normal mechanism to regulating heat is useless when you're covering it with a laptop.
>>
>>47519329
>reinventing a laptop

It's actually becoming a tablet in a laptop case.
>>
>>47523613
New macbook (the device in the OP) doesn't.
>>
>>47523613
The MBA is deprecated though.
>>
>>47523592
Apparently >>47523489 does.
>>
>>47519329
in the past revolutionary products took over the market and got the company producing them a huge market share.

macbooks still hover somewhere around 7 %.

Sorry that your laptop is so fucking garbage you can't use it on your lap without it overheating.

Retard alert

moot left like 2 months ago. 4chan is now run by tumblr and sjws.
>>
>>47523634
That's because it has a weak Intel processor. Making something weaker to minimize its problems doesn't make it better. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note Pro is a powerful Android tablet instead of a weak one without being more than $800.
>>
>>47521455
>muh cloud :^)
Just like Apple, equally retarded
>>
>>47523612
you hold it in one hand, and use it with the other.
it was clearly designed that way.

Even netbooks of old were most comfortably used that way and they had keyboards attatched
>>
>>47520782
Actually they can carry up to three, the normal batter that can be a strunk 9 cell (like 10 hours of use) a ultrabay battery (the size of a optical drive) which adds aroun 3 hours, and on a few models the slice battery that goes below the laptop that adds another 12 hours of so, you can compute for a day straight without problems, maybe more, I recall some /g/entoofag getting almost 40 hours straight
>>
>>47523664
That's just how laptops work. Your legs don't normally move that heat as quickly as laptops generate it.

>>47523730
If the heat is going into your thighs, that's not a good thing if you keep your laptop there for an hour or so everyday.
>>
>>47523731
i need a name to curse so moot it is.
>>
>>47523612
Don't use the physical keyboard to type if you don't have a desk.
>>
>>47523730
your body is system, bro. The warm blood from your thighs is flowing into your groin so you're not really winning by uncovering your junk

As an owner of the new xps 13, are you certain..?
>>
>>47523480
reinvents it to be even more like an ipad.

TABLETS ARE THE FUTURE
>>
>>47523865
that's really not how the ciculatory system works
>>
>>47523928
The energy absorbed into your thighs get radiated up and down the legs. When you keep your laptop on your lap as a habit, that constant energy is going raise the temperature of the area of the body.
>>
>>47523928
oh ok
I'll just take your word that blood isn't flowing from organ to organ. Dont even worry about knee overheating, not even an issue. Its not like its your balls or anything
>>
>>47523956
I'm not disputing that
I'm saying that it's not like your blood is going to be hanging around in your legs waiting to get heated up and then go to your groin where it stays long enough for it to dissipate
>>
>>47523597
It's not the fans inside the machine, it's the apple fans using them that are too fucking noisy.
>>
>>47523833
But if your laptop gets hot you are doing something wrong. Modern laptops are not even warm
>>
>>47523963
there are plenty of animations around that show how blood flows through the body, you could check them out if you don't believe me. also, knee overheating? really?
>>
>>47524036
Making use of what the cpu can do is now considered something wrong? Why don't you try any Thinkpad made in the last 10 years. Run a game of Minecraft or something.
>>
>>47523889
Yes, but the xps13 isn't the infinity is it?
