I really dislike the new Macbook. It may be ’cause my daily driver for more than 5 years was a 2009 Macbook Pro. I loved the design: sturdy, with awesome keyboard and upgradable. It lasted without too many hiccups for all that time in a world where the upgrade cycle of many electronic products is no more than two years. After a brief switch to the Microsoft Surface I wanted my old laptop back, or even better; the closest thing I could buy. The Apple lineup just refreshed with the ‘new’ Macbook Pro 2016. I was so disappointed by what I saw where once you could buy beautiful design with convenient build and inputs. I ended up buying the 2015 model (in my opinion, the last great laptop Apple made). In this article I’m going to present what the dream revision from the new model could look like.
Everyone even remotely passionate about tech should have heard by now the announcement of the new iPhone X. I’ve talked with most of my geeky friends about it and their thoughts range from “it’s too expensive”, “the name is so confusing”, to “Apple’s lost its own way” and “it is not a worthy upgrade”. I think these points couldn’t be furthest from the truth. Let’s talk about them in depth.
