Professional Mac Users' Complaints List Grows
After 'Disappointing' Apple Event
Apple Has Received More Online Orders for
New MacBook Pro Than Any Previous Generation
As the old saying goes, you can't please everyone. :-)
Yup. And clearly Apple knows what customers want better than any random
outsider. The vocal minority bitching and moaning and calling for Tim
Cook's resignation apparently doesn't represent most customers. Go
figure. : )
The "pulse" of buying is simply pent up demand. People knew a refresh
was coming and waited it out. So sales have been low of late and now
the buying spree begins.
That only works if the new machine is something people want.
Yup. As usual, John Gruber has a good take on this:
"If your priority is the display, the new displays are brighter (500
nits) and offer wide color gamut. The new MacBook Pro SSDs offer
industry-leading read and write performance, years ahead of the
competition. The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers a quad-core i7 with speeds
up to 3.8 GHz. For many demanding use cases, these are professional
machines. Just not all professions."
