>>52458037 Well, you can always find at least 5 other products better made that run better than an apple product. In turn, they're products are just for the apple sign. People who buy their products know close to nothing about technology.
Apple literally copies every single thing they do, add some gimmicky slick slogan to it, and rake in the cash from gullible idiots, while the actually innovators go out of business.
Funny how no matter how bad you think MS or IBM was, now that Apple has been dominate for 5-6 years now actual, real innovation in the consumer tech industry has completely ground to a halt.
Seriously, every "new" consumer tech product these days is a absolute fucking joke, because every company is desperately copying apple, chasing the money, while there's no one left to actually innovate or create real value.
>>52458037 Last I checked you can still get a macbookpro with all the ports. The biggest problem is the price but they are great laptops. I bought a used one cheap in great shape and have never looked back I still have my windows desktop and a backup linux laptop for when I need a wide screen (portable) or doing something I don't want on the MBP. If you can do it in linux you can do it on OS X then some and the UI works better then the glitchy linux ones even though I costomise the shit out of all three. If you can get one do so they are great and probably the most use full computer out their. (not in enterprise though). BTW System admin and photographer / cinematographer.
As an iPhone user coming from android, the biggest problem is the walled gardens in iOS. There's a lot of weird little restrictions across the board that are puzzling. Cant change app defaults, icon arrangements, text-send tones, to name a few.
But my iPhone has been consistently fast and has been usable since the day I got it, which is something I couldnt say about my android. Yeah I miss custom launchers, remodeling my home screen, and running emulators, but the trade-off is decent for me.
As far as everyday usability goes, iOS and Android are functionally the same. I can still do what I like on either platform.
>>52458037 It's overpriced mediocre products - for idiots. There exist social pressures amongst the sheeple that encourage Apple products for social status.
Last Spring, I was browsing a doll thread on /jp/ at my college's library & overheard a girl saying she "might" buy a Macbook. If I wasn't so quiet & afraid to make a scene, I would've slid over & told her why to avoid such crap.

>>52460424 Fair enough. >Macbooks are pretty sick for college but not much else. I do see lots of people at college using them. If it satisfies their needs, I guess it's good enough for them...even if Apple's got them by the balls.
>>52460440 >counter point Elaborate. How does that sentence counter my first point?
>>52458037 Higher prices on what are ultimately inferior products Closed source everything Practically no customizability Perceived obsolescence What >>52458664 said about stagnating the field while simultaneously stealing shit from everyone General kikery (Take the lake of SD card support on iphones for example)
The only reason I have an iphone is because I needed one to use iMessage.
>>52458846 Linux with a GUI stuck on top no? Any Mac fags know how to basically purge all personal info, cached passwords from a Max OSx before I get rid of it? It's a beauty unit to look at no question about it.
