Both have 16GB RAM, the nVidia 965m is rated as approximately the same as the Radeon Pro 455 (which is the fastest one available for the MacBook) and with the performance base is claimed to have a 16 hour battery life. I can't find the CPU specs for the surface book but the chips are the same generation. While the MacBook has a touch bar the Surface has a touch screen plus a pen and can function as a tablet as well but only a 13.5 inch screen. In Canada it also costs ~$500 less than the 15" MacBook Pro with maxed out GPU. It also has a USB-A port.
The new Surface Book uses the i5-6300U and i7-6600U CPUs, they are the U series so have 15W TDP. Apple have gone for the i7-6820HQ and i7-6920HQ HQ over Iris Pro versions as the HQ allows all four cores to go in to Turbo Boost at the same time whereas the Iris model only alllows one core to be in Turbo mode at a time, to keep the TDP at 45W. GPU is impressive in advertising but it is a 'variant' and we're yet to know how it really performs.
They're different tools. MacBook Pro as limited it seems to be, is a powerful machine and the 4 Thunderbolt ports opens it up. Just those freaking dongles!
I'm struggling to get a Lenovo P50/P70 or Dell Precision 7000 series to cost similar to a MacBook Pro. Massive and bulky, cost more for a similar spec, or you can go overboard and get Xeon CPUs and spec a laptop for £13k!
It has a terrible trackpad, and only a 15W CPU, slow SSD, screen isn't too good, no Thunderbolt so they use horrible dock connector. X1 is more on par with the old MacBook Air.
It is there, but wont show up in your current machine. I had a few old Macs the other day, did an Internet recovery and they downloaded Lion.
I'm in the UK so get forwarded to http://www.ukispcourtorders.co... which lists lots of sites to get even more things from. Thank you British government!
Apple have had an ARM CPU in the trackpad and keyboard controller for years. Nothing new here.
8k isn't coming until 2020. 4k UHD 1 is being tested this year and launched next. UHD Bluray is not the same as the television standards that are coming.
UHD TV standard that is coming to broadcast has to support 120 and 100 fps. This is the second screen to be revealed that will be compatible with the new standards that are coming. Current TVs on the market will not be compatible with what is coming, they may fudge it by giving yo a downgraded image however. Blame TV makers for rushing to the market before the EBU, ATSC etc have ratified their standards, DCI have pushed something through the door with UHD Bluray but misses a lot of good features.
Or, just send a Profile to the device. No dev account needed. You can install and run your own enterprise apps remotely.
Or, develop your own app and distribute it using MacOS Server, MDM or VPP. You can even have your own app store in a enterprise environment with iOS. It's not as locked down as people believe. Just there are no public app stores other than Apple's own.
You really want a slow ass micro SD card slot? Apple use speedy chips, iPhone storage can do 500MB+, a micro SD struggles to do faster than 200kB/s 4k writes.
Must be settings. Just tried Firefox and it states:
"Playing bitrate (a/v): 64 / 5620 ( res: 1920x1080, par: 1x1 )"
I call bullshit to this article.
The onboard Ethernet is via a USB to Ethernet controller which also works as a USB hub. Limited to not just USB 2 speeds, but also controlled by the CPU in software to do the networking. Plug in a USB hard drive, if that's in use your Ethernet slows down. The CPU only has one USB I/O.
This phone is running iOS 7, any newer version for be far harder and more destructive if you attempted to hack it.
