    Ah, damn; thought they'd be like the watches, but I guess it makes sense on their part not to offer them any longer.

    Weren't the first AirPods like $150? A $50 increase seems like a bit much for mostly minor upgrades.

    You can get the series 2 for $160 (same as series 1), $200 is with the wireless charging case. The wireless charging case by itself is $80.

    lol at paying $40 more for a wireless charging case, even bigger lol for charging $80 for the case by itself. What a joke.

    Agreed. Zero outside noise cancellation. I guess that’s good If you need to talk to someone. Love Apple products but still not sold on air pods.

    I’ve had airpods for about a year. They are great for how I use them: podcasts, Spotify and talking on the phone.

    It’s ATTs way of saying it’s LTE 4G+ I think it’s a marketing gimmick.

    It’s the exact sane BS they did with 4G. ATT had 4G, but it wasn’t real 4G, which is LTE.

    not a MacBook - the old Mac Pro towers

    I work from home and currently use my personal MBP. Don’t do anything too intense, but I do run two external displays and usually some combo of ppt, excel, outlook, chrome, etc with the occasional photoshop. I want to take the strain off of my laptop so was considering getting an old Mac Pro from eBay or whatever and using that instead. Will it hold up to do what I need?

    It should. If you improve the RAM and upgrade to a SSD (Both are relatively cheap and easy to install) it should handle that stuff pretty well.

    Tried to search around because I remember an old thread about it but couldn’t find it.

    Currently have LastPass but just got my renewal email and the price got raised from like $11 to $36. What’s the consensus recommendation for password storage programs/apps? I have all Apple devices.

    as long as it meets the graphic card requirement, it can go to 10.14 (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208898)

    all the older models can go to at least 10.13 regardless of graphic card, so you'll have a few years until features get limited

    Been using the AirPods 2 for couple of weeks now, only real difference is the improved battery life. I use them many hours a day so it’s been a great improvement.
