[07:11:38] baweaver: ignoring the code, which one of these color schemes is the clearest?: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1w-Gf2FoMHdm0Mg-36Z2tMCPi-29Yqsao
[16:05:26] apeiros: ok, sometimes I think those people screaming "apple is crazy expensive" make bad comparisons. but the new minis seem vastly overpriced for both their components and their target audience…
[16:07:50] apeiros: I mean at their quantities, CPU is ~80$, RAM ~50$, SSD ~80$, Mainboard ~50$, Case: ~100$, Other parts: 40$, totally 400$. their price: 800$.
[16:16:32] apeiros: well, with the laptops, I also buy for the hardware. even if the touchbar and soldered on ram/ssd stink.
[16:19:30] phaul: I agree, but for the same price range I think the high end sonys toshibas dells can be just as good build quality wise
[16:21:30] apeiros: might be the case now. last time I checked something was always missing. either the built-in SSD was slow, the screen only 300nits bright, or just whatever else.
[18:12:03] apeiros: fascinating. I have a 2TB disk. "About this mac" -> "Disks" (or whatever the english name is) says "1.5TB free" and "Documents: 1.3TB". much math. so compute. wow.
