[Micronet] AnandTech MacBook Review

John McChesney-Young
I haven't had any faculty or staff ask about the new MacBook, and
although I've read a good number of shorter articles and know what I'd
say to almost everyone ("Not yet, not this generation") I appreciated
and expect some of you might also value a typical 12-page AnandTech
review of the new line:

Did you know the Core M chip is 1.04 mm thick? Amazing!

Here's the direct link to the "Final Words" page:

with a good summary.

John,

Thanks for these resources. One faculty member did inquire about it and I only knew of the features from the keynote. It will be great to get reviews to understand the full scope of the new MacBook. One of the things that he missed was that there were adapters available to juggle the need for multiple ports (VGA, HDMI as well as power and USB) with the new USB-C. $80 was a bit of a shock.

Your resources will hopefully clarify the pluses and limitations of the MacBook before people "impulse" buy.

Thanks again.

Beth

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in – forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
                            -Emerson

This is the essence of forgiveness. You can't change what happened but you can make sure it doesn't have the power to prevent you from being happy tomorrow.
