Michael Tsai rounded up comments from across the community on Apple’s new Macs. I have quibbles with some of the details, but there’s a strong consensus: Apple missed the mark.
Maybe Apple is working on something bigger and these are just a bridge or a holdover. Maybe VR is just a gimmick that the mass market won’t care about in a year or two. I could at least try seeing Apple’s perspective if it created some kind of a halfway compelling story along those lines. But it didn’t.
