This is a good sign for the new laptops that Apple demoed yesterday

I liked the new AirPods but am wondering if there is enough there for me, and others, to upgrade.

Doren makes a lot of good points.

You don't market a machine by stating arcane specs, you sell the flash.

Geeks can look up the specs if they need them.

You must know this. Did you never take a marketing class?


..and if you want a really effective commercial, you try to appeal to the widest range of customers.

If the marketer is clever, they could present the specs in a manner that it is in the "background" without disturbing the flash.

I'm sure that there are many are attracted by the flash who turn around and ask their geeky friend what they think.

Geek: "I don't know {and I don't feel like navigating Apple's web site to dig out the specs} - maybe you'd do better this this new HP model!"

I'm saying this as a person who regularly does a lot of work using Terminal -
yes, I do believe in the saying "friends don't let friends use Windows!"*
bit others aren't so enlightened :-)

*- yes each computer has its purpose. if someone needs a PC and not a Mac, I wouldn't push them.

The new Mac makes more efficient use of RAM {whatever that is, but computers need it and lots of it}
so you don't need as much!

They could put in something like that -
simple, only slightly geeky perhaps, but understandable by everyone.

I wasn't joking, I just meant that most don't care as long as the specs are close or comparable.

To most, the specs don't mean much because they don't understand them or what they'll add to the user experience.

That's why they sell the flash and push the narrative that an iPhone or Mac is "faster" or "better."

I think Apple has done a great job by bringing back features people wanted in these new laptops, like the ports that were missing from previous models.

I agree about Jony Ive, changes like that wouldn't have happened if he were still at Apple.

Dan Ives on earnings next week

Essentially, moving some phones from quarter 1 to 2 secondary to chip restraints is not anything to worry about.

Might be belaboring the point... but it wouldn't hurt if Cook said "M Macs render video 2x faster", again screens are perfectly adequate now days I think with one exception from what I've seen, that's in direct sunlight. A phone with a screen legible in direct sunlight would be attractive... not so much a laptop, however I'm sure a few people need to use theirs outside.
