Template talk:Apple hardware
|WikiProject Computing / Hardware||(Rated Template-class)|
- the template above was one of the best draft version, with miscellaneous tweakage omitted, respectively.
So I change the template into a column version.
- I really suggest we should we should keep the template this way and merge with Template:Apple hardware before 1998. I mean Apple just doesn't have enough things to make it look pretty and there is a fair amount of generation gap havoc. I am not against, but please stop being a bad role model in encouraging other spammy users as seen in AfD to be more illicitly irresponsible and such. Thus, my personal opinion is just wait for 2 months for things in the market to balance off, while you are at it collect all the fandamonium and techy-stuff and contribute it later. It literally doesn't look pretty much when you try to bunch in it altogether. The is going to cause too many edit & style, merely because a battle of differences. Thanks. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 08:21, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Separating iPad Air models from iPad lineup
Several attempts have been made to separate the iPad Air models from the iPad lineup, both at this page and at Template:IPad models and List of iOS devices. I've started a discussion regarding the virtue of this change at Talk:List of iOS devices#Separating iPad Air models from iPad lineup. —RP88 (talk) 16:08, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
This needs to be discussed, particularly as my edits to start the process of correcting these mis-categorizations have been reverted. The Apple II line, in production between 1977 to 1992, consisted of six models (no more, no less): The Apple II, II Plus, IIe, IIc, IIc Plus and IIGS. This is factual information, not opinion. The Macintosh PDS-based IIe emulation card is not a seventh model, nor has Apple itself ever declared this. There are literally dozens of solid references to back this up. Furthermore, Wikipedia's own template Apple hardware before 1998 follows this. Now it's understandable having the Apple I and III fall under the same category realm as they're very closely related family members, but why are the Apple Lisa and Macintosh XL in this category? And why is the Macintosh PDS-based Apple IIe Card here? For the latter it is a plug in emulation board, an add-on accessory strictly for the Macintosh line, NOT an official model of the Apple II line. It doesn't even contain firmware or video generation circuity, those are emulated by the host computer. If there needs to be a discussion as to why it is not a family member of the Apple II line, I'm open to discussing and explaining that if need be. Though as it stands, it belongs under the accessories category. Additionally the Lisa needs to be moved as well. I suggest looking over the 1998 hardware template as a guide to follow.--Apple2gs (talk) 17:40, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
