  • they look amazing but that is all, because their hardware is *BULLSHIT* that is why Louis Rossmann has so many work. The thin craze had made laptops useless. that is why I prefer Thicc Laptops, like Thinkpads P series or the System76 upper line.

Love it ;-) I have a HP 1030 G3, which is the business version of the spectre you tested. There are so many things i dont like. I think the next i will go with a MacBook Pro 13" with 10gen Intel.

  • 4:31 Windows Hello is used for Microsoft Store purchases and can integrate with websites that can access your wallet apps. Problem lies with the wallet apps. 4:40 Windows Hello automatically logs people in on the basis of their biometric, without the need of choosing "Other user". I deployed Hello at my business where people swap places frequently (daily rotation) and people find it very useful. This can also be used at terminals or POS systems. Windows Hello supports fingerprint, IR, smartcard, NFC, iris, and facial recognition, and can expand that authentication into MFA with the Authenticator app so you can come to the screen and confirm on your phone it's you who's logging in. I understand that Alex likes TouchID, just clarifying that in 2020 Windows Hello has kept up on that front, too.

  • i bought this exact model in GOLD - For anyone thinking about it I do the following tasks with NO issues whatsoever 1080p video editing - FinalCut and iMovie Low level Photoshop and Illustrator (Marketing images, flyers etc.) ios development - No 3d games. Coding - mainly python and java.(main visual studio code and VIM - Scripts, programs, etc.) web development Microsoft office suite netflix and other types of streaming sites. dual monitor set up. zoom and video conferencing software. MULTIPLE tabs open. Currently use Mozilla as daily driver, safari and chrome to view web projects. (Chrome is a whore) I've used nothing but windows for YEARS, alienware and lenovo. This is by far the best machine I've used in terms of form factor and performance. It does get hot, but nothing has become unbearable and I haven't reached any serious performance hindrances as of yet.

    • Thermals will always play a role in degradation to a certain degree (no pun intended) but after spending my first week with this device worrying about every little thing, I’ve began to just enjoy the device for what it is. That said i follow these guidelines, 1. I dont work outside. 2. I dont use it on my lap or fabric surface. 3. If i use it in clamshell (multiple display mode) i make sure its about an inch off the ground with the ventilation port unblocked. In canada it costs 2k with the student discount, the way i see it if i get 5 years out of it at 8 hours a day usage - thats a total of 14600 hours and equates to roughly 0.13cents per hour total cost. The person you bought it for is going to LOVE the device.

    • FUCK OFF Do you think the heat issue will reduce the life span of the computer. I’ve just bought one as a gift and I’m seeing excellent reviews but also many unfavourable comments. You seem to be doing a lot of stuff without issues so that gives me confidence. Pleased that you are happy with the spend. Cheers from London

    • It goes much deeper than just clock speed, there’s architecture, core count, what size process it’s built on (ex. 10nm, 7nm, 5nm, etc.), number of courses, hyper threading capabilities, power consumption, wattage, and all kinds of things like that. MacOS is also extremely well optimized so super high end chips aren’t needed for it. This 1.1ghz processor actually outperforms the processor in the base $6,000 Mac Pro is single-core performance.

  • Re: Unlocking macs. The big thing you're missing is the Apple Watch. It unlocks the computer as soon as I lift the screen, no touch OR facial recognition. TouchID is only used for passwords and such. Re: Killing bluetooth speaker sales. I have the new 16" macbook pro. I haven't used my bluetooth speaker with it at all since buying it, no need, the speakers are just that good for anything i'm watching on the laptop.

  • I think the reason people think macs suck, is because of videos like this. "Man this macbook is awesome, let me list nothing but the most meaningless qualities that they get right". Sure you can't run more than a couple tabs, plug in a mouse without adapters, last a day on a battery, or really do anything I want it to do well. But hey atleast it doesnt bend when I press on it. Or hey, its shitty thin tinny laptop speakers are less shitty and tinny than this Dell. Because A.) Dell is DEFINITELY a leader in laptop quality? Despite the fact they lead exactly nowhere except bezel size, and everyone I know who has gotten a Dell has had to get it sent in for repairs within a couple months. And everywhere online people complain about defects. B.) Because people ... use laptop speakers to listen to audio where quality matters like music? Who in their right mind blasts music with the shitty laptop speakers ever, no matter how much better you say they are I can still tell they sound like shit, just like almost every laptop speaker. And this is ignoring the fact I can go out and buy a $600 CAD Ryzen laptop that OUTPERFORMS this laptop, has more ports, and frankly I have more faith will last longer. Despite the flex when you press on it. The flex doesnt mean anything, macbooks die regularly, while cheap Acer laptops will last years. If anything Id bargain the flex makes a laptop more durable. After currency conversion and taxes, you're basically paying $1000 CAD for a screen with better colours and viewing angles, and Mac OS. And Im sure Ive seen laptops with good screens for under $1000 so even the svreen is negligable.

    • I get this isnt a formal review but honestly it isnt far off from formal reviews of mac products. Computers are tools. They certainly have subjective experiences to them that people enjoy, the art of usage if you will. But frankly Apple's usability is shit, I don't get what people think is good about it and when I ask nobody can really explain it. I suspect it isn't actually any better, it just looks nice upfront then people get used to it like any other software. And also usability is cheap software changes for a mac product. Apple needs to invest in actually impressive hardware to back up its fucking price tag, not this look we cut it out of one piece of aluminum, great Im sure it'll be fun to step on. Invest in a durable hinge, extra abilities like face ID or fuckin NFC I dunno, literally spend money on anything that adds to the users capabilities and ease of use. I'm glad some reviewers like the macbook keyboard but I cant type worth shit on it because I cant feel when It clicks, maybe offer a second skew with a chunkier keyboard? Despite the unibody, It's not even very durable (see all the memes online of macbooks dieing infront of people from day-to-day drops and cats). I'm sick of reviewers glorifying Apple for doing almost nothing of actual value for regular usage. It's great that its so fun to unbox, and sure the reviewers like it for a week. But actual customers buy these to use for several years, and the Macbooks are absolute dogshit for that. The small smooth touches they add amount to nothing during daily usage, just minor things people get used to.

  • If they'd have just bumped the thermal headroom to cope with some 13/14W to help it turbo better this thing would be a 'slaptop', alas the fan is just ill equipped to cool the thing beyond 10W load, which means it doesn't turbo well enough to do the i5/g7 justice. Especially ashame as that insanely clocked LPDDR4x basically performs like 64-bit GDDR5 so should be neck to neck with those mx150/250s from nvidia.

  • Nice review, Alex! I've actually been looking into investing in a MacBook for quite some time, mainly because I'd like to get Logic Pro X for my music, and it would be nice to pair up with my iPhone, especially since I already have music work in there in Medley and GarageBand. However, I'm not sure if I would be better off with the Pro or the Air for running Logic Pro X. I think that software is pushed more towards the Pro, but, if I can still run it well on the Air, I'll probably go with that. I've really been eyeing the Air because it'd be nice to have a thin and light notebook that's good for typing, and I also really want the gold color, lol.

  • “Apple always nails the build quality” Really? That’s why their last several years of laptops have had failure prone keyboards almost everyone hates? That’s why they made phones that bend and fail in normal use? That’s why they’ve made numerous laptops and desktops with horrible cooling?

  • For anyone who is thinking about getting it based on this video please read this: The 2020 MacBook Air while amazing in so many ways there is a very real problem that you should know. The thermals on the Air are terrible. There are no heat pipes that connect the CPU to the cooling fan so you will likely be sitting at 100 C very often. For this reason alone getting the i5 is mostly pointless. If you can wait a few months the MacBook Pro 14" model will be released anywhere between October 2020 and March 2021. It will probably start at $1,299 and it will be better in every way to the MacBook Air. If you cannot wait then stick to the base $999 version if you are just going to do internet browsing (NOT CHROME) and word processing. Anything more and you are looking to throttle your CPU and get very little use of the power.
