haha, i dont have $12k burning a hole in my pocket either

I love apple products. yeah they're expensive, but they last a long time & I dont have the interest in building my own (though I know it could be done).

I look forward to seeing the display in person. It better be beautiful for $5k. The stand seems unnecessary. Though it seems like they’re targeting the professional market

(data scientists, AI, rendering), so I’m really not their target customer.

Do you build out your own computers or do you mean just planning/pricing out a parts list that would be comparable?

True, AI researchers want more of a cluster & likely more GPUs. I was thinking more at the upper end (def w/ company card). Of course fanboys will buy the cheaper entry level specifications.

Not sure who else they’d be targeting. 1.5TB of RAM, 4TB SSD storage, 28-core processor, calibrated 6k display. Movie makers & digital artists?

I’ve never had a relationship with an independent repair shop. Computer repair has always seemed abstract(?). in contrast, eg, auto repair is so physical you can see what they do.

Heard somewhere that as computers are more complex their repair is becoming more like medicine where tests & solutions are more probabilistic & guesswork.

Same time doctors are becoming more like computer technicians (more exact, precise in their diagnosis) with tools like sequencing & personalized medicine.

A lot of it you can see what they're doing though, there are only about 7 interchangeable and critical parts to most computers, and problems will usually only hit one at a time, unless there's a fire

Laptops are a bit trickier, but PCs are pretty standard, once you know what you're looking at, it's actually very similar to car repair
