I agree, as I've been very plain in saying. What people aren't entitled to is treating their subjective preferences as having special objective status, as you do when you imply the 15" MBP doesn't have performance and usability. Another example: Again your subjective preference masquerading as objective fact. Sorry it gets old for you to have this pointed out, but I assure you it also gets old to see people make the confusion over and over. And over. If people keep track of where their subjectivity begins and objective facts end, they'll be more able to make useful commentary, and probably less upset when things don't fit their tastes. That's obviously false. There's no good evidence for any change in Apple's orientation in that regard. The new machines offer better performance for many professional tasks than the ones they've replaced. Some of the things you treat as less pro are demonstrably more pro in important ways. The ports, for example, are far more flexible and capable for pro tasks by objective standards. It's highly ironic, by the way, when the same people who complain about focus on aesthetics or convenience of portability complain about the appearance and inconvenience of carrying adapters. The lashing out against Apple on this basis is based more in myth than fact. Some people seem to have the idea that Apple under Jobs came out with a new major innovation every year or two. No, it's never been that way.
