    i got my first mac on the 18th and I'm loving it, the price point had always kept me away, but enlisting in the navy meant i needed a laptop to communicate with family and friends after training. but my question is why does apple insist on putting lower end graphics in these?

    Battery usage time, as a more powerful GPU would suck the battery faster.
    And then there is the heat, as a more powerful GPU uses more power and creates more heat.
