I think so. Now I'm debating whether or not to get an Air on sale. I don't know if this is something that is hardware based or software based. If software based, I can say goodbye to Linux on Macbooks. We'll see what documentation comes up. Wat? Again, don't like the idea of force clicking. Apple is going in a very bad direction. Dieter Rams needs to publicly shame them to get them back on track.Not very fond of Silver for laptops for some reason. I find silver too bright...
Lol. +1 I think iFixit said the display assembly was completely fused together so they couldn't take apart the screen on the rMBP. Space Gray is beautiful. The silver look is boring and for me it's a bit too bright sometimes. What? Whatever, risk not worth it for now. We'll see if Apple also makes it so all of their new products come in 3 colors. That gold though...it's not gaudy but it looks like they sold their soul to the Chinese (note: I am Chinese). I'll try. I'll see...
15" will probably be waiting for Skylake. The thing most definitely needs a GTX950M too. Yuck, do not like the force touchpad because I'd like not to care about how much pressure I put into clicking on that touchpad to get OS X to do what I want it to do (but hey, shouldn't be a problem if I use Linux). Edit: Dieter Rams would probably be somewhat disappointed with Apple's recent decisions and products.
Hmm...I saw mostly Lexus. Just generally some luxury car that I don't feel like too many people care for. Display is fine. Not a big deal to me since phones have been at the pixel density race for awhile. If you're talking about its thinness you'll probably have to thank Sharp for that with the new IGZO stuff (my best guess as to who made the panel and how it's that thin). The "New Macbook" is just silly though. It's sacrificing function for form with a meh keyboard and...
Apparently luxury cars in China wasn't enough for them. Every "rich" guy there drives some sort of Lexus 90% of the time or some other brand. New trackpad actually seems god. The rest though...ehhhhh. From the few photos I saw of the interior a lot of it felt empty. Might just be that gaping area where the trackpad is supposed to go. Man...would have been nice when this thread still traveled at light speed.  +1 +1 XPS 13 is awesome, although personally I wish it was more...
I actually like key wobble, of course not extreme amounts. After you wear down the texture of the keycaps on a mac I could see it being more bearable so your fingers can slide while still actuating the switch, but with key wobble I'm able to type without worrying about poorly aimed keystrokes not registering. But that's just me. I don't notice anything in common use, maybe it bothers some people a lot.

Really just the keyboard now and that $79.00 adapter which is just plain silly. Edit: I just realized, are we not getting a Skylake refresh from Apple? This and the refreshed Air along with the 13" rMBP all were just refreshed with Broadwell. Hm... Since I believe Broadwell is still LGA1150 and Skylake is LGA1151, though that's land grid...
I'm not sure what they would call it. IMO its price point should be the lowest since it's the weakest of the three. I'd be fine with the name "Macbook" if it was the lowest tier in every way, but its all BUT price. Macbook < Macbook Air < Macbook Pro There was something about angled key travel to make it so you can have longer travel distance in the same profile keys/switches. Is there anybody else here who hates wearing watches or wristbands? Most technology or stuff I...
The "New Macbook" isn't that bad. It's basically an overpriced Chromebook IMO. I wasn't very fond of HP and Synaptics with the ForcePad which was terrible, and it looks like Apple has basically applied that to their touchpad and keyboard (keyboard is a bit of a stretch but the super-short travel distance is questionable). Apparently laptops aren't thin enough nor light enough (also because tablets apparently don't exist to the New Macbook designers). USB type C I welcome....
Just found out that Deluge and Vuze were banned on What.cd and Waffles.fm while comparing torrent clients.   qBittorrent has all the core features of uTorrent (and the newer builds of Bittorrent which is just uTorrent but purple).   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_BitTorrent_clients#Features_I
