I follow this forum since several months;
Many times I had the feeling, EVE V fans are benchmark test fans.
They discuss about milliseconds, nits and parts of Zentigrades.
I think, the V is more. It is an instrument for working, Enjoyable working. Enjoyable spare time.
Fun looking at a piece of design at your fingertips. Pointing towards future development.
I believe there are just smallest differences between different models of notebooks, which are not even feel-able for the average user. Calculating an Excel sheet in 1.0 or 1,1 second - what does it mean?
Or 100 pages of a dokumentation? Or copying 5 GB from here to there in 10 seconds?
Yes, there are users who want to compile or translate large amounts of data. For these it could be important to end calculations in seconds or parts of an hour.
Is all this meaningful for you or me, the average user and fan?
I just want cream of the top, no matter if it is a second faster than the competitor.
To get the really best you may spend several 100 percent more than for a V of your money. In other words: for any given technical product you might spend 100 units of money to get it. You may spend 150 units to get the top. 300 or more for ultimate.
The V is top. I do not need more benchmark points this times.
Of course, times will change and needs may too.
You will balance.
I did since 1975.
