why buy a MBP when you could put the money towards a Grom?

MBP 13 is god-tier hardware, don't fall for the ThinkPad meme.

Unless your school demands that you need to run a certain kind of software, college work is light work so you don't need a tricked out PC. If you're looking for a powerful "future proof" laptop, that's fine, but you have to understand that there is a probably a difference between your desires in a new computer versus the actual demands of student work

Putting aside the questionable grammar and literally-who domain,

>According to first reviews

When the 2016 model was first released, there was a bug in macOS’ GPU switching code that tanked the battery life. It was fixed – permanently – about a month later.

Yes, that was 10.12.2, issued in December 2016. It removed the battery life estimate because it was misleading and was never particularly accurate to begin with, much like every file copy dialog ever.

In my picture, you’ll see information about 10.12.3, released about a month later, rectifying battery drain issues experienced on the 2016 MacBook Pro due to improper GPU switching.

>>
>>60981363
the screen size is pretty small, but you MIGHT be okay.

the problem is scaling. osx does an okay job but there is still blurriness. windows 10 does an okay job but there are glaring problems.

the REAL problem is when you do anything other than base os work. use RDP? use VMs? good fucking luck getting it to look good.

i bought a used macbook retina and after one day i realized my mistake. i can ssh into stuff and its nice, but i use lots of windows machines for work and anything vmware and rdp is DOG SHIT. you either have it fullscreen and everything is blurry as fuck making your eyes hurt, or you attempt to run it at native resolution and 'scale' which turns out like fucking GARBAGE.

windows 7 is utter shit, windows 8 is still utter shit, ANYTHING linux is somehow even worse

keep that in mind, i made the mistake and am now trying to resell my macbook, if i get something new it will be a 1080 display max

its not enough to get half of the shit working, and then you open something and the menu bar is miniscule and the text is fucking cropped because is 10000 pt font

the order of os's that scale correctly is osx > windows > linux

and osx is far from perfect. but the REAL problem is that with a normal screen on a mac you can easily go between all 3 without any issues, but with a retina display you are effectively shut out of anything other than osx

You're seriously missing the point of a laptop if you just use it to do heavy lifting and not a versatile mobile device. Laptops can do heavy loads when plugged in and when not are meant to do light activity. Gaming laptops are not meant to be used on battery power for example.

Provide example of one laptop with a quad core processor, modern graphics (like the 1050 or Radeon Pro 550), 16 GB of RAM, and 4k display too (all of the laptops shown in that image have 4k display) with good battery life under load.

What you are talking about here is 1 hour vs 2 or 3 hours. Doesn't fucking matter, no matter what load battery life is shit in a laptop.

False.
1. You can't read since it says FHD on the dell on the right
2. the Macbook has a resolution of 2880x1800 this is not "around 4k"
3. The spectre x360 and UHD xps 15 are the only laptops on that comparison with 4k displays

>>60981675
That is my mistake but it is actually smart to show the HD model for comparison on the side as for how much extra battery life going from UHD to HD will give in Windows.

I will say that at 15 inches the difference between 2880x1800 and 4k doesn't even matter, you are just cramming an unnecessary amount of pixels actually above what Apple does and contributing to how the MacBook wins the battery contest by far.

Doesn't change the fact that you're comparing machines with higher demanding "idle" hardware to a macbook with, spec wise, inferior hardware. You also are ignoring the fact that the FHD xps 15 is not using the 97wH battery, if it were it'd be head and shoulders above macshit.

Not OP but I figure posting this here is better than making a new thread:

What's the best macbook-like laptop that has good compatibility with linux? I have a macbook that is starting to get close to replacement time but I'm not happy with the way apple is going with them. My main problems are the non-replaceable battery, the severe lack of ports, and the increase of price (I got mine for $1000 which is about the most I will pay for a laptop, all macbooks now are $1300+). I don't really care if the CPU, RAM, and SSD are non-upgradeable, though I'd be glad if I had a laptop where they are.
>>
>>60983103
if all you care about is the color and construction you're going to be hard up. HP makes some cheap lookalikes.
>>
>>60983103

Get a 2012 MBP (replaceable HDD/RAM/battery) or a 2015 MBP (nothing replaceable, but good port selection, and relatively inexpensive).

Or get a Dell Inspiron for $700 and have fun with that.

Honestly just borrow or buy a used old MacBook Pro or Air from 2013 for cheap. Jajaja, i agree, build quality sucks, OS is normie tier, but thats exactly what college has in supply, lots of normies. Professors will probably expect you to have windows or macOS, not Linux.

I fell for the 4k meme on my laptop and it's shit for video games, virtual machines, linux, pretty much everything. And the only thing I can find to watch in 4k is youtube videos.

i am the one who originally posted that, and you are wrong.

you have a laptop screen that is far too small to have a 1:1 scale, or you tell the OS to scale which we have already been through is garbage, OR you have the hypervisor attempt to scale which means its all blurry

not being able to run vms is one of the main reasons my high resolution laptop is useless

ThinkPads. Old high-end laptops are always better than new low-end laptops, I guarantee you.

Also, watch the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3Qit4CZ6EU

You don't need a fucking gaming laptop or whatever the fuck above $500 for school.

And to anyone in this thread that thinks a MacBook is a good choice: Kill your fucking self.

I work in the computer repair business, and a couple times a month we get customers in begging us to fix their surface books and surface pros because the microsoft store told them to go to hell or buy a new one when they asked for repairs out of warranty

Here are the number one and two reasons we see them

>It just stopped turning on one day (around 45% of cases
>the screen is cracked (about 40% of cases
>I forgot the pass word, the OS is corrupt, whats BitLocker? (the rest)

Surface products are fucking dog shit and people who shill them have no idea or are being paid.

MBP at least the new one is FUCKING SHIT! why would you buy a laptop that you can't upgrade or fix like the new MBP? Sure you can replace the SSD on the non touchbar model, but with a PROPRIETARY SSD thats triple the price because 'muh apple'
>>
>>60983903
Surface Pro's automatically enable encryption on set up, and if the user uses a local account and forgets the password, that data is fucking gone. SO yeah, that's a pretty fucking stupid policy.

But sure, go ahead and keep shilling microsoft products, you dumptruck retard.

What makes it shit? it has a great trackpad, good battery life, decent keyboard, amazing screen, it's ergonomic & light, has 4 thunderbolt 3 ports, and comfy software.

Really, what justifies it as shit? Because of the price? You sound a bit bitter.

i got the razer blade with the 1060. I love it.
My last was a 2011 macbook pro, and I love the razer. Build quality is excellent. and for the logo i got a D-Brandz vinyl cover for the back and turned off the backlight so you dont see the logo at all. it's a great laptop

Objectively, more people think chinkpads ugly than those that think that macbooks are ugly
>>
>>60984079
what's objective is that that's an anecdote, which is subjective.
either way, they're perfectly comparable, unless you're cynical enough to think that people will hate you for your choice in computers.

>>60984110

I'm planning on buying the thinkpad x1 carbon on the 33% discount it's slightly more expensive than the xps 13, seems like the screen is better on the xps 13 but it has that coil whine and the x1 carbon has a better keyboard.
Idk if the x1 carbon is actually durable enough compared to the other thinkpads.
>>
>>60985008
it's durable relative to the other laptops on the list, by far, but you can't spill water on it and probably can't drop it from a car.

>>60980643
>Unless you do serious 3D, video, or physics, you have absolutely no need for a high power laptop
Go fuck yourself, you poor piece of shit. If I use something every single day for 8 hours at least, I better invest some good money in it, provided I have that kind of money. You will notice the difference, no matter what.
