What is the point of making tech weaker?

Isn't a really thin piece of aluminum going to be stupid fragile and bend really easily? Its like $1500, why isn't it titanium instead?

        Tablets aren't laptops, frickface. Until they're closer to the weight of a magazine they're too heavy.

          it turns out lighter things are easier to hold for longer durations. instead of using your neurons to sperg out, you could consider how a small change in a device used by millions of people could propagate into a measurable difference.

    The Galaxy Tab S9 is the same thinness, but it barely bends even though it's still Aluminium.
    Time will tell if Apple has increased the strength of the new Pros or not.

    Normies are obsessed with the appearance of consumer tech and more thin = more better. Same with the no bezel obsession. Who cares if functionality, durability and battery life suffers, we want our devices to look like CGI tech in a Hollywood movie. The future is like, floating transparent glowing screens man! You know a device is more better and more future because it looks more like the things in Iron Man, obviously.

    Never mind that small shitty batteries and fragile devices also mean you'll have to buy another one when it breaks. We dont talk about that.

    It's probably to balance better on the new keyboard, that has a much steeper angle.

    They want it thinner and lighter because most people still hold the device to use it. Aluminum is lighter than titanium with a higher strength-to-weight ratio.

    Weight is about how long you are carrying something for. Ipad Pro appears positioned for video camera work and things like that which suggests people need to be able to carry it steadily for the length of shots and whatnot. Even a quarter pound will make a difference there.

    New ipad looks to me like it's just a giant iphone.

    Marketing departments are about gaslighting consumers into taking inferior products for inane reasons. Look at what consumers gave up for a phone that's 3mm thinner
    >3.5 jack
    >removable battery
    >durability
    >battery life
    >repair ability
    All gone and normalgays jump for joy because their new phone is 2mm thinner than the poor people who are still using the "old" version.

    That said normalgays only care about two things
    >phone as a status symbol
    >camera's ability to make them look less fat and ugly

    But they need it to be fragile so they reduce its thickness

    Thinness is an artificial metric that corporations use to seduce normalgays in lieu of providing genuine innovation. By-and-large, there is no benefit to prioritizing thinness of electronics in the current age, and there hasn't been for decades.

    My number one issue with Apple is that whenever they crush the competition at miniaturizing their hardware they never add a larger battery and instead make the fricking thing thinner.
    Every single fricking time they make a remotely interesting product they will instantly gimp it like that, it's so fricking moronic.

    What makes you think titanium wouldn't bend? It's not magic. They could use lightweight materials with extremely high stiffness like carbon fiber, beryllium, or vitralloy, but those are expensive and more expensive again to manufacture. Why would they do that when they can sell you something cheap for the same price and then sell it to you again next year?
