So this year's rMBPs got bashed quite a bit for Apple's pushing 'thinner and lighter' too much while making many compromises. Then I found this new laptop from LG that makes me think rMBP isn't really pushing 'thinner and lighter' to the limits enough (to justify making unwanted compromises). http://www.lge.co.kr/lgekor/product...cateId=2170&prdId=EPRD.308759#featureBtnsWrap (in Korean) Its specs: 15" form factor i7 7500U (15 W dual core) Dual slot DDR4 (i.e. supports 32 GB) 60 Wh battery with claimed 22-hr duration (despite the supposedly power hungry DDR4) Only 1090 g (compare that to 1.83 kg of 15" rMBP) What it lacks compared to Apple's 15": Quad core, retina display, build quality (adds to price, but likely zero to small weight differences) dGPU, slightly larger battery (76 W in 15" rMBP) (adds to weight, but certainly not 740 g) Of course, I'm not bring this up as a direct comparison to the 15" rMBP. While this particular model would be more in line for competition with a MBA-line Macbook (if one existed at 15" form factor), the 60 Wh battery / 1090 g makes me strongly think that Apple could have done much better than their 76 Wh battery / 1830 g on their rMBP line if they really pushed the 'thinner and lighter' to the limits. Or have made less compromises in return. For me personally, would certainly want to buy a similarly positioned (size, weight, & power wise) Macbook Air-esque from Apple.
