It is cute how it is said, "Apple was able to keep entry level prices for its 13-inch MacBooks to $1,199" You've got to be kidding. They have more money than some European countries and the US treasury. Does this mean they were able to find a new way to exploint Chinese workers?

Interesting. Ios cannot run in a VM on a PC though. Interesting...

I believe that the laptop can have up to 16 GB of RAM.

I believe that the base price includes 256 GB of Flash rather than 16 GB.

Rick, Only hobbyist companies have ported any EDA tools to Mac because of the small market share. I was surprised to see NO 17" MacBook Pro because I've been using a 17" laptop for 9 years now and would never downsize to the 15" display, big mistake on Apple's part.

Is there any interest or work in native EDA apps for the Mac OS X?

Intel-based Macbooks can boot Windows, if you insist. Many BYOD's involve people installing Windows VM's on their Macbook Pro to run EDA tools.

Even if Macbooks become cheaper, the legacy cost is too high for companies to switch.

Apple's expansion of its cloud services such as picture services and the 3-D maps, highlights the continued move of OEMs up software stack.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
