    Michael - thanks for these articles about the rMBP. I've been considering buying one to run Linux on, now I know I should wait a while.

    No, if that was the case I wouldn't have spent a majority of this month's ad revenue on the rMBP and Thunderbolt display in order to provide this Linux information that's been requested by many people....

    *facepalm* why is it that everyone on the internet thinks that indie news sources like this are not allowed to have a personal preference? Michael has stated several times why he prefers some apple products. If he were sponsored, we'd see mac ads, he would likely have to be using their products in most of his tests, and he'd randomly bring up Apple as much as he does with beer. Also, he said he bought that MBPR

    Errr simple typo after already being burned out and typing too many articles yesterday. Thanks.

    What are you talking about? That allquixotic post was pretty funny

    Though the W icon in those pictures bothers me more than all the apple advertising :P

    Apple makes good and beautifull hardware so i don't mind knowing how it performs under linux. The MBPr is one of the best laptops on the market. That said i wouldn't touch an apple product with a stick.

    On a side note its a shame that we don't have a company like apple but FOSS friendly.

    Thanks Michael. I won't even think to buy this apple's mess. Btw. why do you advertise apple so much? Are they paying or sponsoring you, perhaps?
