Episode 401: It’s Not A Bad Computer

Daniel and Manton talk about the 2019 Mac Pro and the shocking price of high-end configurations. They debate whether the company who makes “the computer for the rest of us” should be selling $50K computers, or if it risks taking focus away on selling products for “everyday people.” Finally, Manton takes stock of the challenge of meeting his microblogging book deadline, and Daniel tries to convince himself to postpone the deadline.
