I am right now on a Macbook Pro and to be honest... i really don't like OSX... I just bought this thing cuz i thought i'am gonna get some work done... but i realized i could do it with other OS too and for far less money.

OS X does not runs stable on my side as Windows or Linux.

>>52334016
No buttons? Barf.
>>
>>52334054
>>52333949
Well yeah it's optimized in that you won't get kernel panics or have to manually upgrade your kexts/drivers and you'll get great battery life. I definitely wouldn't recommend making a hackintosh laptop cause it's just a pain in the ass.
Desktop Hackintosh or Macbook pro are the only viable just twerks options.
>>
>>52333949
First party software support is the biggest one I can think of, the drivers coupled with Apple hardware are a big reason for the battery life being so good on Macs. Not to mention stability, this is no slight against third party kernel modules but the risk is always there that your system could be come unbootable with a software update.
>>
Why is it every time I receive a zip file from a mac user I get a _MAC folder or something.

>>
>>52333244
overpriced shit, I can cover all my tasks with ubuntu or win 7+.
>>
>>52334054
yes, but its optimised because osx and the hardware exist in a closed system, they stick to a tiny variety of parts so that they can test it thuroghly on all the possible systems it can be run on

it doesn't mean those parts are of comparable performance to equivalently priced pc parts

good for grandmas and meatheads, not so good for anyone that knows how to deal with pc hardware quirks

Meanwhile you have the application taking up RAM while it's doing nothing.

I'm done viewing this document, so I close the window. I'm done with my word processor, so I also have to close the program. That's also clunky. You turned what could have been one action into two actions.

>>52334554
You're the one turning it into 2 actions, if you're done with both just close the application. You wanna talk about wasting RAM, how about running 2 instances of the same program just to have 2 windows up.

You really shouldn't form your judgments based on assumptions.

Why would I open an application to view a document?
I do edit a lot of word files throughout the day though, but not at the same time. Its better to have the application still running when I close a document so that I don't have to wait for word to start every time I open a new one, it just opens right away. Besides, if you want to close the application there's no reason to close the window first
>>
>>52334239

apologies for being contrary, but a ctrl+a going to beginning of line sounds more like readline/emacs keybinding.

C^a in my vim increments the number under the cursor (or, I think, if no number under cursor, the first number vim can find to the right of the cursor)

>close window and then quit program are two separate functions that must be done in this order

Or you could just hit cmd q and you both close the program and the window in one single action.

The whole reason Close Window and Quit App are separate is because of app load times. You want to sit through the Word splash screen every time you X out of the only .docx window on your screen, to open up another .docx file? Fuck no.

It has its uses and can still function exactly like Windows.

But people have been sorting alphabetically forever, Windows started the directory trend. I honestly don't get it since I use a file index to get what I need on any OS anyway.

Mac also has native CoreAudio support, making a shit ton of things for me just plug and play. No drivers, nothing.

OS X is also free, they don't charge money for it. The Macs are overpriced, i agree there. But that being said, you are paying for quality parts, and Macs typically last longer than similar Windows counterparts.

this in a nutshell, os x is a really bad os based on more outdated technologies than either windows or linux and they're pretty bad as well. even apple realizes this and is working on replacing a lot of the more important subsystems in os x; maybe in a decade or so it might be better but right now it's not very good

The thing about "equally specced laptops" is that they are around the same price range as the macbook retinas themselves.

>OS X is also free, they don't charge money for it.
You're not wrong and I don't think Apple is either for doing it but they totally overprice on their hardware for that reason. SUN more or less did the same and I think the same was true for many consumer commercial Unix and UNIX systems of their era, Apple just happens to be the only one of those left.

>But that being said, you are paying for quality parts, and Macs typically last longer than similar Windows counterparts.
This is something people never seem to consider and I don't know why. People always pull up speclists but never factor in things like the board design or the chassis itself, same with the screens, Apple displays have been something of merit for multiple years prior to them directing it at end users with their retina marketing.

That being said I still think they're a bit high, of good quality but high. I really can't blame them for being as competitive as they are with their history of being fucked for being open and nearly going bankrupt multiple times, I don't need to repeat the fact they're the last real contender in end user consumer Unix systems too, the others are all dead for their more liberal business approaches. I'm not saying that's a good thing but I understand it.

you must be pretty on the fence about being a heterosexual if using a different computer OS would put you over the edge. I can't imagine any device I use - laptop, desktop, whatever - pushing me toward the dick-sucking camp.

but hey, it's great you're honest with yourself or whatever.

Entry level Apple shit is terrible, would not buy. And you can't upgrade that yourself. They are pretty much forcing you to buy expensive shit, it's the people who buy low level apple products for stupid prices that are plebs and give the rest of us a bad name.

But for $3000-$4000 you can buy some pretty good shit. But again, who wants to spend that much on a computer? Pros buy that shit for work.

That's why i got a Mac Pro tower, not the trash can. I can take anything in and out of it, change everything inside. It's great.

my 12 cores, the motherboard and cooling is stock. Anything else you can change. And god damn, is it fucking NEAT inside.

God damn that looks like a real ass future computer, my dick.

I love the Mac Pro tower, it truly is a well thought product. All the cards and storage and inserted directly into the motherboard, there is no loss of speed due to cable bottlenecks. I can have up to 6 hard drives in it, and that's not counting the PCI-E drives. Up to 128Gb of RAM. It's a killer machine.

Only thing is, the tower is fucking heavy. The new trashcan is good, but...everything becomes external. Fuck that. You can't move it without disconnecting everything, more areas of failure with all the cables, plus ALL the ports are at the back?? What the fuck...
>>
>>52336579
I wish case and motherboard manufacturers would work together to create cable-free/reduced cable cases like this, so cable management isn't even necessary

>>52336636

Yes, but that's the thing. With Windows, you have no control of the software/hardware shit like this. Apple hand picks it's hardware that works best with the software, and if what's on the market doesn't suit their needs, they...build it themselves. Like the Mac Pro.

I don't want to sound like an Apple shill, they just have/had a few very successful products, and i think the Mac Pro tower is one of them.

Interesting fact, it's the aluminum oxide, the stuff they put in antiperspirants that reacts with your skin. Aluminum forms a very thin layer of aluminum oxide on the outer surface because it oxidises in contact with the oxygen in air (it is resume m reactive after all)
Also I read somewhere aluminum oxide is responsible for causing Alzheimer's in old age.

Puts the display to sleep.

>If you have a monitor (set to mirror laptop screen), keyboard, and mouse plugged in, I'm pretty sure it stays "awake"

What if I'm running a vm, and would rather not keep the laptop open to keep the vm running? Every other laptop on the planet allows this.

Appreciated asslick <3 , didn't know what resource(s) was reliable.

I'd recommend clover because it's way easier customizing shit for your build since every build is different.
In the end it's really worth it if you use the stuff I do
>trackpad gestures
>timemachine
>coreaudio
>logic x
other shit I'm too lazy to write down

because its as useless as linux.
