Ubuntu is clearly not ready. Out of the box at least.
You: Apple rebadges Dell
Me: Apple sources from a supplier, and typically has an exclusive for a year, after which Dell begins sourcing from the same supplier.
If they release a high-ppi iMac, it's either going to be QFHD, or some new arithmetic magic needs to be invented to make up for scaling NPOT. While the latter is not impossible, I don't think it's going to ever happen, or that it even needs to happen. That said, I don't think we'll see a QFHD iMac this year, and will be shocked if Apple pulls it off. Late 2013 is probably when we'll see large high-ppi displays in the consumer space.
how Unity would look if run on a Retina display Macbook today (albeit scaled by a factor of 4):Wut. How about actually trying it to see whether it actually renders that way once it gets the DPI from the display?AlanBell • 6 hours ago • parent −
go make one, take a screenshot of a KDE desktop, make a big canvas in gimp, move things to where they would go on the big screen and fill in the bits where you have gaps and slap a scaled version of the desktop background over the main part. Thats how I made the screenshot in the article.
On the other hand, it's not too bad, at least on a 17 inch display, fonts could be a little bit bigger for my taste. Why there is no 17 inch mac book from apple... who knows?
Fuck. I thought they actually tested it.
Apologies. I will read more carefully before i post something.
Now i know that you are trolling theres tons of Ultrabooks available in marketBut if you want a pretty, sleek, aluminium laptop and don't mind paying for it. Then Apple is pretty much the only choice.
Other laptops are plastic and feel like toys and have dozens of stickers on em.
The MBP, MBPNG, and MBA are all really nice products. I'd challenge you to try one out for a week and see what happens. Borrow one from a friend, or see if you can leverage the 14day return policy. At the very best, it could work for you. At the very worst, you end up with a wasted week, a bit more perspective, some barista's friend-request, and a couple gripes that you can use to tell Mac users how full of BS they are.
I'm shocked that hasn't been an Article about Michael whining about not getting free hardware to "test" Linux on
I was replying to uid313 who has no knowledge about current MBA/MBP competitors and yet is presenting us here with lies example: google/ddg Samsung 700Z (its 15.6 alumininum notebook with numeric keyboard)I believe he was speaking in the context of the MBP's category of laptops. I could be wrong though. I agree that there are MBA competitors, but disagree that the majority of the Ultrabooks on the market come close should be presented as such.
I'm not really interested in Ultrabooks whatsoever i just wanted to debunk obvious lies also i like simplicity and extensibility which none of Ultrabooks and Apple stuff actually offers and the bottom line is OSX is really terrible OS i had experience with Snow LeopardThe MBP, MBPNG, and MBA are all really nice products.
