In Topic: BareFeats asking for donations

Apple got rid of their Mac hardware affiliate program a few years ago which really hurt his income I believe. Definitely a good guy to donate to. Some of the best (and only) Mac performance reviews on the web.

In Topic: Macbook Air/Pro updates, 12" Macbook discontinued, SSD upgrades less...

I did like the 12" Macbook (Wife has the 2017 model) but I'm guessing it just didn't sell super well compared to their other laptops.

The Air is using the same class of chip, but it having a cooling fan allows it to actually have much higher performance then the 12" Macbook since it can run a full turbo for much longer.

In Topic: 10.14.5 Beta adds Radeon VII support

I'm hoping that they add support for the new Navi cards soon. The 5700 and 5700 XT are actually pretty compelling cards at their price points. 5700 XT is barely slower then the Radeon VII and costs nearly half the price (at least here in Canada).

USB C at least seems to be making some headway. Most new laptops, phones, tablets, etc. are USB C and can usually make use of USB C dongles/docks.

For example my Dell USB C dock at work works with my wife's 12" Macbook and the dell usb c dongle's (USB C to HDMI for example) work on my ipad pro for HDMI out.
