- Has soldered RAM?
- It has a specific (fast) SSD?
- Is the performance any less than the standard MBP?
- It uses Iris on the lower-end model?
Or maybe, please define what constitutes a Pro machine.
These are the things that make it less than a "Pro" machine to me...
- It's designed to be disposable (glued together).
- It lacks an optical drive
- It's compromised in terms of storage and memory expansion solely for the sake of slimness.
- It has a novelty display that is of no practical use and in fact, results in diminished performance for no net benefit.
Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
