    Depends on the use case.

    If the user searches something already available in the current page you should use a simple input.

    If the user goes to the search box because the current page doesn't have what he wants, the full screen search makes total sense. You offer him a focused view where he can try different inputs and decide between recommendations.

    Freelance work as in designing for the web? Even a 2012 one can handle that easily. You need an SSD more than a high-end CPU.

    You shouldn't worry about the power of your machine. You should worry about the screen size, if you're comfortable with it for a daily use. For coding it's fine, but for design work I can't live without a second monitor, external storage, and a non-apple mouse.

    As you can see, it's more important what you have around it not the machine itself. If you want high portability as in working in coffee shops, I'm not a fan of that. As a professional. you need a dedicated working space.

    While the product is great and you're really going in the right direction with it, the product page doesn't stand out with anything.

    It may be me, but I saw so many gradients, they are all the same because they are only colors, of course.

    Some time ago, I would've appreciated the centered website layout. But now, the scrolling is so embedded in the user's behavior. We land on a page and scroll before even reading the headline.

    It is nice, it looks nice, don't get me wrong. But it doesn't stand out.

    Indeed. I felt the same way. A let-down from a team with a product which stands out primary with its design.

    On the other hand, it is a well-done product page. Definitely on top of the many examples we see in those portfolios.

    That's why I believe you can just risk it right now and build on top of this canvas by adding unique elements that define your brand. Not only showcases but actual map elements integrated on the page.

    Do you have a copy-paste ready version?

    This is what I'm using the writing app too, but I prefer Evernote.

    Why Bear, if I may ask?

    Like the idea. It fits our messaging behavior of type - send - type. The current one looks like an email based one.

    Although if the same person stops from writing for 7 sec or so, the next message should come in a separate notification.

    Maybe they will, but I don't plan to change all my stuff in one year. The change is too drastic. Maybe 2 usual and 2 type c would've led to a smoother transition.

    And if they are so confident on changing the trends, why not use a type c for iPhone 7 too. It's just ridiculous that you need a dongle just to connect it to your new MacBook.
