Our iMac review was pretty positive, but we got to thinking: If we’re going to want external graphics anyway, does a Macbook just make more sense?

Fuck off, Linus. All the desperate monetization in the world won't change the fact that you're a bad person.

I'm just glad you were nice to Anthony on this video. You were mean to him in that networking one.

+PhantomThe problem is the iMac comes with it, and they charge extra to get rid of it and go only SSD. So I understand why they kept it for the video. Stupid Apple, no one wants spinning disk storage in 2019 for an all-in-one.

Grr why didn't you also compare the top of the line Mac Mini in this video?

Okay, you guys a doing some serious Apple reviews. Good work, they are definitely well done.

I would seriously suggest looking up benchmarks on the MacBook Pro 15 inch if you're planning to go for that one. The i9 is seriously not worth it due to thermal throttling. All the CPUs end up performing more or less the same. The i9 has additional cache and can in theory turbo boost higher, but in practice, for any long running processes, all 3 CPUs run at around 2.9ghz (yes, even the 2.2ghz CPU runs at 2.9ghz under load). So the best value in my opinion is the 2.6ghz middle configuration since you get the upgraded graphics and a 512GB SSD.

I do appreciate the self criticism of the "belabored segue" It was terrible, but self deprecating. well done.

Mac is 100% sure unsuitable for professional and otherwise use they are highly unstable especially in case of a failure I have tried helping a friend with a MacBook Pro 2010 mid that for some reason it was corrupting the os installation constantly after fresh install with either mac or windows

Lol, you're talking "bang-for-your-buck" when dealing with apple products.
Thats like talking Landspeed records when dealing with a Ford Escord, I.E. Completely ridiculous.

Anthony’s way of presenting facts makes the whole thing looking much more convincing. I like this dude.

I just can't get over thinking how extremely unhealthy Anthony is/will be and the suffering he'll endure. Please loose weight, do it for yourself, you will be happier

To be fair I can see why Apple doesn't put T2 chips in their desktop platforms. It doesn't go anywhere and the likeness of theft is greatly reduced.

9:28 You CAN disable the T2 security. Hold down CMD-R to boot into recovery, launch startup security utility and set no security checkbox and allow booting from external media. DONE!

or you just buy a much cheeper and better Windows based system.

If Anthony is as bad ass as I think he is, he will actually shave it...but leave the two handlebars. Just to make us mad.

Leave the man alone to do what he wants/likes.

Lemme just get an iMac. Then I gotta install windows on it. Then I gotta plug in an external RAID, because there's no way that's holding all my games. Oh... and by the way... gotta plug in my graphics card.

True, its pointless if you want to game on it and a huge waste of money. But then again he did said its for professionals.
