My Dell XPS 13 is about to be retired, and so it is time for a new notebook. After a lot of careful consideration, I've decided it is time to make the switch from Windows to a Mac.
Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display will soon be just the MacBook Pro, period. But this generation two version of both the 13- and 15-inch super slim notebooks with high-res displays is still something many average users will be weighing as an outlier possibility versus the more mainstream MacBook Air.
The MacBook Pro with Retina and 13-inch MacBook Air got some mid-cycle improvements under the hood today, with a new 2.6GHz processor for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, new 2.4 and 2.7GHz processors for the 15-inch version, and 16GB of memory as a top-end spec on the larger Retina model.
For the past six months, I’ve heard the same thing over and over again: “The MacBook Pro with the retina screen looks amazing. I want that screen on a MacBook Air. That would be the perfect computer.” Well, we’re almost there. Not quite.
when I'm on linux its temperature is always higher than on Windows, I was facing some pretty ugly slowdowns earlier today and it shut down by itself the first time today too(then I noticed it was really hot)
Im on openSuse 12.1 currently, but on Ubuntu(10.10, 11) and Mint(Lisa, I think) I got worried about the notebook being too hot too
