even that thing isn't exactly a price killer, but literally everything else they make - especially the iPhone - is a fucking joke in terms of price. an iPhone 6+ costs more than twice the price of a OnePlus 2 and there is literally no practical difference other than the battery which is worse on the fucking iPhone.

No it's the innovation. Apple has patented keyless keyboard past months which probably implies force touch keyboards that can change layout as you wish, so no more stock problem for localized keyboards. Also skymeme brought ddr4 and many power consumption things which will increase battery life. Most importantly, thunderbolt 3 will bring the possibility of attaching external GPUs. New macbook pro retinas will probably have 4k or 5k resolution (of course scaled for hidpi purposes). All ports will probably replaced with thunderbolt 3 ports that has usb-c interface.

they could use the same display again and it would be okay. driving 4k/5k external displays is where it's at.

its so sad how apple purposely cripples os x
osx is a direct descendant of NeXTSTEP, arguably the best OS in the 80s and 90s; it had the technology we use today
os x is fast while having LOTS of features, more than any DE or windows have, some are even osx exclusive
only problems osx has are really basic and easily fixable, but apple prefers to do nothing and force people to buy 3rd party programs that fix the stuff apple should've done!
only if apple made os x a separate os, added Vulcan and other standarts and actively advertised it, maybe gnu-published it to push foss people to their side, it'd had like 90% marketshare; os x worked better than windows on my non-apple branded computer, and that says a lot
