Them saying that Mac is not dead is like that sketch from Monty Python with a knight who claims every chop of a part of his body is "just a scratch".

Mac's dead.

Thanks Tim Cuck!

That sounds pretty high actually considering how late the Pro refresh came in. The Macs are more popular than ever, including any of the Jobs era.

HAHHAHA... you mean, "more expensive than ever"... right?

Come one now, new MBP is extrmeely expensive for what it is: a fancy facebooking machine that throttles as soon as you apply some load on it.

Macs are becoming fashion accessories. That's why so many people are moving away from them. Apple's making tons of money off adapters now and Macs are many hundreds of dollars more expensive than before.

And there isn't a single Mac that comes with a decent GPU that would allow you to use VR or play an occasional game.

So fucking sad what a Mac has become.

This is all due to Tim Cuck combining iOS and Mac teams. There's no more a dedicated Mac team so those hipsters who make iPhone without 3.5mm ports are also the shitheads who decided to remove all the ports (spare a few USB-Cs) from Macs. These same shitheads also decided that the 15" MBP should weigh exactly 4lbs and damn everything else

Battery life, performance etc... fuck you if you want that. Weight is the most important thing!

Hilariously, Gruber was so incompetent that he uploaded the wrong episode. When it first went up we were treated to the previous "New Year" episode with Jim fucking Dalrymple.

Gruber must be so drunk he can't even perform basic tasks like cutting and pasting.

I gave you the sales data. If you don't like it, so be it.

> It's bullshit.

Are you telling me the data is simply false as in it doesn't match your feelings and anecdotal evidence thus should be dismissed? Or is your claim that the data isn't representative of the actual popularity of the Macs and the sales are just about to fall off precipitously soon?

False. *Source:* I'm using one and doing some pretty heavy 3D development on it.

What the fuck are you talking about? I have a 5K iMac with whatever the maxed out Radeon GPU is for it and play games all the time without issue.
