Hope they are able to deliver more powerful professional machines with adequate levels of RAM and discrete GPUs in the future.
Nope, Apple clearly will not be able to do this. They have launched a failed idea, how could Apple not know their core business?

/s

Guys, this is the first iteration of a new product lineup. CLEARLY they have replaced the lower end of the spectrum first. Yall need to stop running around with your hair on fire.

16 GB RAM?

Hello 2014
It's optimized!

Two ports instead of four...the ports are optimized!

You know what's optimized? Apple's profits.

Hardware is overpriced and underpowered garbage.

Hope they are able to deliver more powerful professional machines with adequate levels of RAM and discrete GPUs in the future. A redesign would also be nice with a 14" MBP.

As I've said all along, it doesn't make much sense to buy into this right away. Things will improve as apps are made native, bugs are worked out, and Apple can build upon what they've already shown us hardware wise. Think how quickly things accelerated from the A4 in the first iPad. These early machines are largely Intel Macs with Apple Silicon. I'm looking forward to see what a Mac is like that's completely redesigned around this new silicon. I'm planning to get the 2nd or third generation.
