Snippet: The MacBook Adorable ☇

Shared on June 26, 2017

Casey Liss reviews the MacBook:

I’m not here to discuss tomorrow; I’m here to discuss today. Today, I feel handcuffed every time I use an iPad. Even for the things I can accomplish, I have to jump through flaming hoops in order to do so. It’s not for me.

What I really want (what I really really want) is an iPad-sized device, with all the portability it provides, but with none of the drawbacks of, well, actually being an iPad.

There’s a lot to take from the review, as beyond the hardware itself, Liss touches on the idea of finding the right tool for the job. A lot of people need a computer like a Mac or PC to get work done, and it’s great that Apple is still building machines that can accomplish these tasks.

It’s really easy for people using a Mac to condemn the iPad-only crowd or vice-versa, but truthfully, more options are great. If there’s a Mac as convenient (minus cellular capability) to travel with as an iPad, that’s pretty remarkable and may have seemed impossible just a few years ago.
