Macbook Pros have weak hardware for their price class. Same with any macbook.

Tell me an similar device with same/similar hardware for an way better priece please.

Teeqoz said:

Iphones are massively outperformed by other brand smartphones of similar price. Ipad are about as powerful as their competetion.

Really?

 

Teeqoz said:

Apple relies on selling products in a way higher price class than what their power would suggest. Either overpriced or underpowered, doesn't matter too much.

uhm...nope.

 

You have some really bad information my friend ;) The iPhone 6s is the fastest phone on the market. The iPad Pro is as strong as full i7 x86 tablets. Other ARM-Devices arnt even in its league.

Iphone 6s+ is about 400$ more expensive than a Note 5 lol. I said "similar price point". Meanwhile, a Galaxy S6 (which is still substantially cheaper than and Iphone 6s plus mind you) has about twice the gflops for its GPU, two times the CPU power, 3 times the RAM, 1440p vs Iphone 6s plus' 1080p, and I could go on.

Your graph is for single core performance.... And it doesn't even feature the CPU that an S6 has. Heck, it doesn't even feature the CPU that an Iphone 6S plus has lol. But single core performance isn't everything you know. The iphone 6s plus only has 2 cores, while the galaxy S6 has 8 cores that also have higher clock rates.

 

Now that we have the phones out of the way, let's go to PCs.

That thing has similar hardware to top of the line imacs... Keep in mind it is about half the price, but imacs come with screens. Throw in a 4k screen and it's only 1000$ cheaper than an imac.

Apple and MS are massively successful and dominant for years on end in many divisions.

Nintendo isn't dominant in the console space, and Sony isn't dominant everywhere else.



Lol. Look at E3. Where Nintendo has barebones Sony has explosion.

What are you talking about? The note 5 is samsungs latest flagships. It outperforms the almost 1 year old Galaxy s6.

An actual galaxy note 5 is 800€. Its more expensive then a iPhone 6s plus.

Dude please stop talking and get some informations first, your disgracing yourself.

 

An iMac comes with an SCREEN. The top end iMac came with an 5k screen!!! Dude LOL.

We talked about macbook pro not imac btw. WTF :D Your ridiclous, please educate yourself before talking lol.

 

Edit:

here is your galaxy s6 vs iPhone 6s comparison:



Cool Op, but I disagree. It's obvious (to me at least) that Sony sees the approach Apple takes and tries to emulate that. It's clear as day in their design language, and the fact that Sony has a very long history of fostering/trying to push proprietary software/hardware (this dates back to before Apples existence) helps prove my point. Go do some research on Sonys history and technological accomplishments and you'll see what I mean. Oh wait what's that? You want some examples?

Betamax
Walkman
CD
BluRay
SDDS

Were they an opportunist when they bought gaikai, in an effort to make game streaming relevant?

There's also evidence that Sony is building up its own ecosystem of products that talk to each other, spanning a wide array of smart devices. Hmm. Who else does that.

Nintendo isn't like any other company and never will be. Look at their branding. Odd controllers, games aimed for all ages, toys with NFC built in that communicate with games. You would probably draw a better comparison with Hasbro or Disney tbh. Actually yeah.

Sony is to Apple as Nintendo is to Disney. Microsoft doesn't really have a parallel that I can think of as most of their revenue comes from software/services. Which is definitely not a position Sony shares yet.

Nice story bro, nice to know Nintendo created gaming when they started in the 3rd generation.

apple didnt created smartphones either. There were smartphones before the iPhone. Apple just improve the technology that much and create a unique user expierence. That made them popular. Like Nintendo.

Oh you are right. The Note 5 is actually more powerful than the S6 which already blew the Iphone 6S plus out of the water. Wow! FYI the Note 5 is only 3 months younger than the S6.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-N920-Factory-Unlocked/dp/B00716Q61I

Note 5: 819$

http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPhone-Warranty-Unlocked-Cellphone/dp/B015E8VRWW/ref=sr_1_3?s=mobile&ie=UTF8&qid=1455034864&sr=1-3&keywords=iphone+6s+plus+32gb+unlocked

Iphone 6s plus: 905$

I was looking at looking at the 32GB model of the Note 5 first, didn't think about that. But the 32GB one is still ~100 dollars cheaper and much much more powerful

Like I said in my comment (If you read it), after you fator in a 4K screen which is about 500$, you still end up paying 1000$ less.

And sure, I can give you somethings outperforming macbook pros too:

This is what happens when people tie their ego to large corporations. They start slipping into a false reality of unsaturated black and white, good and evil, cats and dogs.

Why does the OP not mention Amiibo Festival or the way Nintendo built their empire by illegally forcing third parties into exclusivity contracts? Why not mention the revelation that was Gran Turismo or Uncharted 2?

Because these things do not fit within the OP's fantasy world, they are discarded. Taking part of the truth here and part of the truth there while ignoring everything you don't like is dishonest.

Don't do that.



Nope. Not at all. Next question.



Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.
