“The cappuccino company Apple updated its line of laptops aimed at creative professionals,” Lawrence Latif writes for The Inquirer. “But what the launch of the latest Macbook Pro [sic] serves to illustrate is how underwhelming the Ipad [sic] really is.”
MacDailyNews Take: No, but it really did a bang-up job of illustrating how ignorant Larry really is.
Larry continues, “The latest crop [of MacBook Pros] incorporates [sic] Nvidia’s Optimus graphics switching technology to build on the previous generation’s dual GPUs.”
MacDailyNews Take: Wrong again, dummy: Nvidia: New MacBook Pro graphics switching is Apple’s tech, not our Optimus – April 13, 2010
Larry continues hit-whoring, “Comparing the price of a Macbook Pro, which starts at £1,000, against a £300 Acer notebook isn’t the name of the game. Of course both will essentially do the majority of jobs equally well, but when compared against similar premium ‘lifestyle’ PC brands such as Sony you see that Apple isn’t doing its usual bang-up job of ripping customers off.”
MacDailyNews Take: Why would Larry bother writing that a £300 Acer notebook will essentially do the majority of jobs equally well as an Apple MacBook Pro when he could’ve simply tattooed “I’m an idiot” on his forehead and been done with it? Oh, yeah, because Larry’s a hit-whore, that’s why. If he had any real skills he wouldn’t have to stoop to shoveling electronic Dvorkian crap for a living.
Larry trolls on, “Nevertheless, although comparing the Macbook Pros against Sony might not be fair comparison of service, performance or even posing ability, putting them side by side against the Ipad shows just how far off the cut down tablet really is… The two devices do vary wildly in terms of specifications but considering how much extra you’re getting with even the baseline Macbook Pro, it’s shocking that anyone would opt to spend so much money on an Ipad.”
“Taking a gander at the hardware specifications, there’s simply no contest,” Larry expounds. “Without a doubt the Ipad has a superb screen and CPU, but one would have to possess yet unattained levels of incompetence to believe that a system on chip, even one that is as capable as the A4, can compete in general computing tasks with an Intel Core 2 Duo, much less a Core i5 or Core i7… Given the extra performance, functionality and fewer restrictions it does seem that Apple’s own products show up the pretty obvious flaws of its latest toy.”
Full stupidity – Think Before You Click™ – here.
MacDailyNews Take: Really, Larry, is The Inquirer that hard up for hits? Obviously, Apple makes many tools for many needs (Larry’s parents certainly made at least one, too).
The bottom line: We’re positively sure that Apple won’t mind if you opt for a MacBook Pro over an iPad.
