I've never once had the need for a personal laptop on a job. Computers are typically provided by the company.

Give an argument for why you'd need to do anything CPU intensive on a laptop.

Such as what? Writing script at Starbucks? You don't need CPU power for that.

you say this while most industry professionals and students use macbooks as their daily driver laptops.
but regardless your argument is retarded
>hurr durr just use a desktop
guess what, the entire purpose of having a laptop is… a computer that is portable, if you want to discuss desktops i don't even understand why you're in this thread. hell, i'll even say that you're probably better off using windows as your desktop os, but nothing beats a macbook especially with the m1 chips in the ultrabook domain

What do you guise even do on your damn computers that requires so much power?

I just read, write, talk to turboautismos, and consoom media.
Sure once in awhile I'll edit some pictures or audio files.

For these reasons when I pick a laptop I just want something with a decent non-16:9 screen, centered keyboard so typing is more ergonomic, and preferably upward firing speakers. Things like a haptic trackpad are a bonus.

It's lame tho, cuz I just want integrated graphics and anytime I find a laptop that meets my basic structural desires, they're always like as or more expensive than a MBP 16" and too powerful

Why can't anyone just make a less powerful, less premium, MBP knock-off?

Exactly what I'm saying. The most CPU stuff I do is rendering videos and constructing photogrammetry, but why would I do that on a laptop when I could do it on a desktop where the CPU power is probably half the price for equivalent power? Ipads from years ago are powerful enough to do digital painting at the same level as desktop so what would I need any improvement in the cpu speeds of macbooks for?

This only happens in the US where everyone is retarded and they need apple shit because concepts like "drivers" or "bootloader" are totally alien to most normies.

No this is not a meme, the most active markets for apple products are the US and Japan, everywhere else it loses.

Widescreen is awful ergonomics for text-based stuff*. Purely a thing of fashion and infantilizing the user.
>>12973
Reminder that patents expire after 20 years, so there is no legal barrier now to making laptops with such a sliding "butterfly" keyboard and likewise one could copy the "leap" keys from the Canon Cat (just not the names).

*I used to except movies from my anti-widescreen haterade, but I have become a subtitle fetishist and these might as well be displayed below the film, so…

I don't want a laptop targeted at normies. I want a practical brick like the 701C. Everything about a 701C is better for working on it than a crapple. The keyboard feels better because it's the proper size and the keys travel further. The screen is a good size and it's in the same aspect ratio as our eyesight, you don't see in 16:9. The laptop is more solidly built and can be used as a weapon or a tool to smash windows.
