Here's why I'm officially quitting Apple Laptops.
 

 

Cliff notes:
Guy belatedly realizes that out of warranty repairs on a Macbook are ridiculously expensive. Also that there are inherent design flaws in the hardware.

Likes Windows - 'smoother', 'more reliable' (than it used to be).

Prefers keyboard on the Thinkpad, complains about the inferior trackpad fails to mention the trackpoint...

I always buy preowned with a warranty. Still rockin a 2011 17” MacBook Pro maxed out. Gets a lil hot sometimes but other than that, flawless. And seamless integration of notes, emails, messaging with iPhone. Couldn’t ask for more

Oh and the 3 finger tap on the trackpad to quickly lookup definitions of words alone outweighs anything windows could offer me. It’s those little things that go a long way.

Multiple desktops simultaneously, switching between them with a swipe, hot corners...the productivity and workflow is simply unmatched.

Windows 10 is cool, much better than anything they’ve ever dropped but

edit: upon actually watching the video, it sounds like windows and/or lenovo cut a check for the homie.

I switched to the iPad Pro with the keyboard case few months back...



I needed a new laptop and I loved my MacBook Air but it just...Killed me to buy another one for some reason.

I bought the iPad Pro which is really fun to use with the Apple Pencil stylus. The keyboard on the case is maybe the best keyboard I ever used. I'm basically running a new Mac Mini as a server (I have 12TB drive attached with all my sh*t) and I access it remotely like a server if I need to. And if I'm working at a desk, I use that as a desktop obviously.

Apple laptops definitely need to step it up for what you pay for, but I can't say enough about their current tablets and desktops. Great products.

The Mini has been the only device that I've been able to get even close to my max internet speed with.

sh*t runs so smooth, and I'm even getting around 700 or so on wifi on the tablet too with a decent RAM load.

I’ve had my MacBook almost 8 years and never had to repair or service anything on it once

Never even knew it came with a warranty until today

But before that I was swapping out laptops running windows once every year

Do the math

The old Macbook Pros were great.

Recent iterations have been disappointing.

Yes, bc I can take my Hyundai anywhere to get it fixed, or just fix it myself...

As opposed to a Lambo where I gotta take it to only ONE place to fix it, for an astronomical amount...

Not to mention for the most part, they both do the same thing...

I've owned both by the way...

this is facts. my pops got the new joint with the touchbar. i hate it. keys are too flat and don't have a satisfying press like the old ones. and the touchpad is soft as fu*k..mad sensitive. and the touchbar more or less is useless/unnecessary/gimmicky.

but the 2011-2013 macbooks >>>

He didn't state if they were hardware issues or problems pertaining to the software/OS.

But most viruses are designed to take advantage of exploits discovered in Windows.

So why did I have to pay for virus protection on windows?

I havenít had a pop up in years.

And when you said Idk how to take care of a computer, is there a yearly oil change Iíve been skipping or something?

I just an average consumer that uses a laptop for work, if you want to take your pc apart and add led lights and chrome fans thatís whats up but that sh*t ainít for everybody

Because nobody makes viruses for Macs. Do you know what the purpose of a virus is?
