Sharp corners, only one color so if you don't like gray you're ****** , and looking at some pictures I can't even imagine how uncomfortable that'd feel in your hand. It may have that 'minimalistic' look going for it, but realistically it has the visual appeal of a cinder block.

Too bad this was designed by a design student and not an engineering student. This would be an unbelievable nightmare to properly program and have it work. Nearly impossible to actually create in the real world.

Which is a shame, since I myself think it's a really cool idea.

Iphone 5c in US - $99 with 2 years contract
Iphone 5c in Brazil - $600 with contract, $900 withtou
Macbook in US - $900
Macbook in Brazil - up to $4,000.00
Regular Cellphone in brazil - up to $1,000.00
Regular laptop in Brazil - up to $3,000.00

I will never ever understand why people bitch SO MUCH about the price of things in US when your salary is more thant the double than the regular here. I really don't think that apple products are unaffordable in US, I just wouldn't buy because Google Nexus are most cheap (and I like it more), for example. But as a graphic designer, I wouldn't mind if a macbook pro costs $1,000.00

its not so much that their unaffordable as they are a waist of money. for 900 i can get a great laptop capable of running almost anything. then theres a mac which will cost me the same amount and be severely underpowered. theres tons of infroraphics and other things showing how bad apples hardware is compared to other things. the iphone 5 and galaxy s3 came out at the same time and had similar prices. the GS3 however outclassed the iphone in every catagory

macs really have no benefits whatsoever. any program a mac can run a windows or linux computer can run just as well. many people try to say macs are better at creating music while fruity loops one of the better music making software ive seen is microsoft

The best bluetooth keyboard - apple
The best screens for work - Apple
The best way to save space in desk - MacMini, iMac

There is not about specs, it's deppends on your needs. Some companies prefer to use macs far more than normal computers. For example: At my work I need to use a Macbook pro because of the retina display and it's easier to preview images and files, also, it has a nice organization system with tags in the new MacOs. I save a lot of time this way (work with graphic design). But in my home I have a gamer computer, because it's useful to work and I like playing sometimes.

Sincerely, even with a WAY BETTER hardware in my home computer, there is no difference while running most of the programs. There is a cool book that explain about apple/consumer relationship, this book is called "start with why".

If people buy thing just by logical reasons, they won't buy any apple products, but why do they buy it? It's simple.. but I don't want to irritate you with this **** .
I don't blame people to buy apple products, it is really about preference and needs, anyone who buy it for no reason than "being hype" is an idiot

sorry about my english
User avatar #104 to #98 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
its fine but i have to ask about the first three. namely the battery life of the keyboard, why the screen is better and for you to ecxplain the third one
User avatar #114 to #104 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
1- The battery lasts for months, I just needed to change it 1 time when used iMac (worked for over 6 months)
2- Apple screens has retina displays, it doubles the internal resolution, very useful if you need to work with graphic design, I can see Full HD images with a VERY nice quality and in full view without using even half of the screen
3- In companies you need to save space so you can allocate more people to work, macs just do fine for this.
User avatar #121 to #114 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
1. me and my friend have had a wireless keyboard for a year now and never had to change the batteries
2. the screen i use can show pretty good hd from about 12 feet away. of course its my samsung tv.
3. you meant physical space not computer space correct.? my friend had an amazing little netbook that rivaled my laptop
User avatar #140 to #121 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
You didn't get it about the screen, the resolution is 2560×1600. It is very good to work with photoshop and illustrator. For example. Also the colors are really near to the colors you will see when you print something (again, just for designers).

Also, I have a samsung monitor, it was 2 times more expensive than my AOC and have half of the dynamic contrast

The last point here is that I'm not trying to make you like apple, it's about preference. I just said that I didn't mind to pay 1,000.00 because it is very cheap. Don't feel offended by people just because they buy different things, please
User avatar #143 to #140 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
i never said i was offended. im simply pointing out that i diasagree with you and showing my reasoning. this is how conversations work
#151 to #143 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
Well ok, I just think you don't used any mac yet. It's not the **** some people think. I like to work with it, haven't any problem with them yet. Just a curious thing. Look at the color difference between monitors, apple screens are even better the left one
User avatar #153 to #151 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
ive used macs before and in comparison to computers bought at the same time they were slow as sin

word document
User avatar #157 to #156 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
It can't be slower, most macs use SSD, it's far more fast than normal computers to open documents, for example. And you don't use almost any ram or processor to run Word. One of the most clear things when I use mac is that they don't slow down when I'm processing high resolution images in photoshop or illustrator. While in my pc I face this problem
User avatar #161 to #157 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
note how i said at the time. this was about four years ago at least. id shut down everything i could and have to wait while words loaded after typing them. in a gaming perspective ivw accidently left my ps2 emulator up while playing skyrim and didnt notice. and this is a $700 laptop
User avatar #163 to #161 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
Macs are very bad to play, even if the screen has good colors and resolution, it has also 16ms, too bad for playing. Also, macs graphics card is **** for this. It's like playing games with a quadro graphic card
User avatar #167 to #163 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
id have to ask how the specs compare between your pc and mac because im fairly certain that that determines how much processing power your computer has when doing anything

My pc:

Gtx 560 ti

while im ok with computers i dont know the speeds of any of those off the top of my head. but im almost certain the 17 is more powerful. almost being the key term
User avatar #180 to #175 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
My computer and this mac costs the same. So... as I say, I don't find Macs bad, and mac os x is very helpful to me, also, the magic mouse is very good too.

About the I7 and AMD Fx 8120: They are similar, I would buy i7, but the AMD is faster to render 3D scenes
User avatar #181 to #180 - sketchE ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
mac os is just simpler steming from the companies original intentions.
User avatar #189 to #181 - rubyasshole (09/14/2013) [-]
Yes, the first mac (released in 83/84) came out with 3 essential designing programs: Pagemaker, Mac Draw and a kind of Photoshop. So this professionals looked for apple products, so Corel released Corel Draw for windows, this way a lot of people could do "design", and the people who bought "macs" got frustrated and started to talk that a true designer work with apple (which was true that time). So apple focused in make an operational system that would supply designers needs, that's why so many designers LOVE to work with macs. - Today it doesn't make sense anymore, both platforms do fine to work. So it's most about preference, status and money

The problem with br gamers is that the only ones who has time to play are under the age of 13, their families give them everything they want, it includes gaming consoles and pcs. So most of time it's easier to find them playing, this kind is annoying. The good ones just play after work, near midnight or even after, that's the best time to play.

I'll keep this simple, Apple is overpriced because stupid people don't know better. Overall, the phones are often released with features stolen from elsewhere and called innovation. I had a phone back in 2008 that had a fingerprint scanner on it. Problem is that they were deemed impractical because many people would scan their finger and in doing so release that side of the phone where it would fall and break.

So, if you want a smooth UI and great social networking integration at any price point, go Windows Phone 7. You can now pick up a Lumia 520 as low as $72 brand new in box.

If you don't mind a bit of performance issues and want customization, Android is a totally viable option.

I have a Windows phone, but if you're big into Instagram, Snap Chat, and other popular apps, there isn't any official app for a lot of them. So the fan made ones are good, but can be kinda buggy.

But I'm definitely a fan regardless.

Wrong, Android has high market share because for over 2 years they were the only ones attacking the low-end market. Android itself is garbage software that is ill-optimized for anything and is more fragmented than literally any other piece of software in existence. Samsung and HTC make Android usable (Still not good) by setting up proper GPU acceleration and optimizing it for their software. It still lags terribly but is a usable experience when done this way. Android initially blazed it's trail by being the iPhone that poor people could afford with it's iOS wannabe OS and has since gotten people locked into their ecosystem with the apps they bought. It is by no means in itself a good piece of software and there is nothing that is more likely to steal all of your data than an Android phone.

I had a Samsung Focus (windows phone 7) and then a lumia 920 (windows phone 8) for three years straight and I loved them all. The one of the greatest phones I ever had. The integration was perfect, expandable memory, over a day's worth of battery life, and that screen never got scratched, even when i dropped it face first accidentally. I upgraded to the Lumia 920 and it was wonderful, but since the OS and phone were relatively new, it was having quite a few bugs that WP 7 never had, one of them being music skipping, drastic overheating due to the processor running overtime on the most menial of tasks, the microsoft account (and thus, the entire workings of the phone since its all connected) going down randomly and refusing to come back up for the rest of the day, etc.

I thought it was a phone problem and got it replaced. Same **** . I loved WP8, and the interface was beautiful. I could live without custom text tones (which i really wanted), but if the phone was going to overheat every time I opened the facebook app, then **** that. When there was an opening in my contract I switched it out for an iPhone merely because i wanted a change. I had a WP, my tablet was an android, **** it, give me an apple phone. It's treated me very well so far and I honestly am kinda stoked for iOS7. However, I WILL be going back to Windows Phone in the future when WP8 get's their **** together. I just, plainly, find it a better system. If they get more apps, better reliability and customization abilities, then I'd go back immediately.

Who ******* needs that much storage anyways? Almost everything is in the cloud now.

I had an LG Optimus V, it slipped out of my pocket while I was driving an open CJ-5 and fell out on the road, doing 45MPH. Pulled over only to see cars running it over, and over. This was right after i passed a traffic light so i waited until it was red and the coast was clear. I found the phone, the battery cover and the batter scattered across the pavement. Put it all back together, and was expecting it to be dead. I powered it on and voila. Like nothing had ever happened. Only visible damage were scratches and the rocks that dug into he battery and battery cover. One thing did break though, the microSD card, the phone read it as corrupted, i took it out and it was cracked, as i pulled it out it just fell apart into 2 pieces. This happened twice. Although the second time i was turning into a gas station and the guy behind me caught it with one tire. That phone was sturdy as hell.

Smartphones in general are stupid. I've had the same phone for a long time now. Served me just fine. Waterproof, pretty much unbreakable, and does three things-call, text, and pictures, and even pictures are a bit excessive in my opinion. Do you really need your ass to ding and vibrate any time you get a spam email? Do you really need to know every single banal detail of all of your facebook friend's pathetic lives on the go? Is matching colors that important when you're taking a **** ? The answer is no. What a smartphone does is take several devices that should be separate, and combines them together for maximum ********** . And what you end up with is an expensive, fragile, pseudocomputer with a half-assed GPS and no keyboard, and a battery life that is shorter than the average working day.

If you need to contact someone when you're on the go, call or text them. If it's not important enough for a call or text, did you really need to say it anyway?

well thats your opinion. personally I still find them useful. I use my phone for music more than anything because it sounds pretty ******* good and has a decently powerful eq, not to mention 8mp photos and 1080p video. It's easily survived higher drops than my 3DS and my Vita, both of which were depressingly fragile.

amen, if I want to play a game on the go, I have my NDS for that, if I want a GPS, I'd get a VERY reliable GPS, if I want to go on FB, I'd do it for less than 5 minutes at home! I too have a flip phone and it takes ******* forever just to drain the battery (at least 3 weeks whether it's on or off!), and I rarely take pictures with it, in fact the last picture i took was in the moment, I was golfing and nearly made the green on a par 5 in 2 shots! Otherwise I only text or call! I hate this concept of all in one, because you're right, when that happens, it's generally ******** , Action 52 a perfect example, 52 games in one for $200 total, all **** , Wal-Mart Supercenter, a grocery store combined with a department store that also has a restaurant, barbershop, doctor's office, eyecare clinic, picture studio, and more depending on the size! Guess what, IT"S **** ! ALL-IN-ONE HAS TO STOP! IT DOESN"T WORK!

It's incredibly hard when they give such huge deals to students and the media industry to simply get their products out there and be seen as the "standard". This keeps their brand out there while overcharging the **** out of average consumers, but the entire company basically works the same way the "beats" headphones work.

we'll have to go back and use nokia phones again, if you want to play with your phone just throw it from the penthouse and see if you can strike a nuke type blast.. that's better than angry birds

You guise, calm down, it's actually only +850 for the plan...+$400 for the phone itself...
