So I recently got a job making 85k + benefits, so I figure it's time for a new laptop.

Is the 2015 MBP with retina display still the best bet? I currently have a 2010 MBP 15", but I can't find a 15" 2015 MBP, maybe 13" will be fine. I'm okay with non apple laptops as well, and whilst money is hardly an issue, I'm not spending 2k on a laptop, that's retarded

>> No.68245315

>2015 13" MBP
Based. This is indeed the best 13" Apple laptop, better than every version after it

Get a 15 inch if you can find one. I have an rMBP13 and though I've loved it I sometimes wish I had gone for a 15

>> No.68245364

Nah, just get a tablet. They have significantly better performance and better portability.

>"After our one-hour stress test with Prime95 and FurMark (Windows), the CPU runs at only1.2 GHz, while the graphics card is also limited to just 400 MHz. Even though devices fromAsus,Acer& Co. also throttle, none of the direct rivals loses that much performance. The performance of the MacBook was much better under OS X, but the tools (Cinebench and Unigine Heaven) are not that demanding for the hardware."


>"We had our doubts on the performance of the Surface Pro 4 Core i7 configuration considering the throttling issues found on the Surface Pro 3. Luckily, we can observe no major performance issues when under high loads. The tablet is able to maintain its maximum Turbo Boost of 3.2 GHz for both cores when under Prime95 stress and Unigine Heaven stress."

Actually I may just keep my 2010 MBP until it breaks. This shit carried me through college and it's still working well, no need to replace it. I guess I'll just save the money, even though I really want to buy something to celebrate, can't justify it though. Maybe in 2020 I'll get a new laptop.

every day since you could learn to see objects you have been bombarded with messages that tell you you must consume. it is a hard program to break out of. It helped me to think of the outcome of any purchase. for example what impact on your life would upgrading the laptop have? probably not much, laptops haven't improved that much in the last 10 years. perhaps look at something else that may be cheaper that would make you life much better like a pair of nice merino wool socks or something?

>> No.68248631

The ability to charge your laptop via USB-C battery banks and the new hexacore processors are enough to upgrade to the newest MacBooks.

If you want reddit and /g/ approval then the closest alternative would be the thinkpad x1 extreme. But to get near the similar specs of a MacBook it'll cost upwards of 3k.

thats throttling, they are meant to run at 3.9ghz normally.

To be fair, MBPs are surprisingly powerful. A normal person who only web browsers would never have the need for all of its power.

Underrated post. If there’s something to not cheap out on, it’s what you use often.

>> No.68248842

It's throttled by the power limit, yes. USB-C delivers 100w maximum. No USB-C 8th gen hexacores operates at full speed because that would leave nothing for the rest of the components.

The razer blade 2018 can run the hexacores at 3.8ghz sustained because it has a 230w proprietary connector.
