I can't help but love this outrageous MacBook Pro hack
From the M1 Mac mini to last week's brand new Mac Studio, it seems Apple is giving its desktop computers a lot of love right now. But Chinese resellers have found a pretty ingenious (not to mention makeshift) way to create yet another Apple desktop. All you need is half a MacBook.
There appears to be an increasing market for MacBook Pros sold with the screen entirely removed. Connected to any of the best 4k monitors, this can function as a desktop Mac – but cheaper, and with the keyboard, trackpad and speakers already included.
More and more people are buying a MacBook Pro without a screen to use as a Mac mini. Not only does it have a trackpad and keyboard, but it also has better speakers, and the main price is particularly affordable. pic.twitter.com/WtxMQk1h8FMarch 7, 2022See more
