Not the guy you responded too, but currently my only computer is a MacBook Pro. I've built at leased 5 desktops since I was about 14 but honestly the mix of the OS, which is without a doubt better (if you disagree you've obviously never used osx for any decent amount of time), and the simplicity of use and setup makes it a better choice if you can afford it and are not a gamer. Plus the single model of each model makes it incredible easy to buy stuff to change up your MacBook, bunch you'd have a much harder time doing with a windows laptop because of different manufacturers. Name one other laptop except slightly order pros where you can take the disk drive out and buy a perfectly fitted mount of a second hard drive or ssd?

Not when the Macbook pro or a iMac with a GPU (r9) is almost 5k and it's still shit on performance.
I can get HP Elitebooks, Thinkpads and even Dell latitudes with dedicated GPU's New for only 3000€ and the performance is so much better for CAD and video editing because they aren't crippled with a shit tier mobile CPU and they have glorious removable GPU's.
IIRC in newer Apple laptops you can't take out the HDD\SSD without doing visible damage to them. And even if that's no longer the case, it still shows how they treat their customers. Furthermore, older OSX versions lack several basic functions like the ability to turn off mouse acceleration (who does that? Was that an attempt to get me used to OSX and never want to return to other OSes?), basic drivers (didn't recognize my scanner, what the fuck? Linux and Windows both did) and it just wasn't looking good to my taste.
You may argue that it all was fixed in newer devices, but I'm not a retard to spend so much money on what already works on a proper platform.
>he can afford a Mac but he's not a homo
>memes I don't like are cancer
>apparently he can afford dual graphics cards that total $1200 and a custom build pc that costs $600 otherwise, but he can't "afford" a mac
>he seems to have $2000 budget audiophile speakers and $1200 in amplifier and preamplifier electronics but apparently he can't afford the uniqueness of a slab of aluminum called Mac
You just seem really jealous.
>He can't afford a Surface Book, so he bought a Mac
>apparently he can afford a ThinkPad P70 but his wife will kill him if he buys another fucking computer
>he doesn't comprehend the irony in purchasing a $1300 meme computer the web browsing functions of which are replicable by any used laptop available on ebay for $50
>he starts spouting off other operations which are irrelevant to the contention that he could have purchased any computer that does the same operation which makes sense from a utilitarian viewpoint and then he could use the extra money to spend on better speakers or his gf
>want to replace a battery in the only mac in our company
>can't because apple is so special it even needs a special screwdriver
>need to wait another few days for the screwdriver to arrive
What the fuck, like what's the fucking point
>he thinks it's impressive to be able to afford a $1000 laptop
It's not even a real status symbol. I could see paying a premium for watches or cars or houses, but how impressive is it to be able to pay a 400 dollar premium on a laptop because muh industrial design? Does anyone really think you've made it because you have a mac?
>its usually kids
Yeah. I think the adults buy into it because its "intuitive environment."
It's sonething for men to brag about. You can't drive a Cadillac into the board room, as they say. I've never bought into it, but I do see how such things are necessary once you get into the upper levels of a career.
>Why isn't drake posting autoban?
To fuck with whiney little faggot bitches like you.
I'd have preferred to get a mac, I kinda miss my penis now, having a gaping hole where it use to be doesn't make me feel anymore like a woman, just makes me feel like a mutilated freak. Contemplating getting a penis transplant now, just looking for a donor.
Isn't worth it. It performance and speed is no different than windows PC. Also heard the new imac 5ks with r9 m395x will overheat and shutdown the computer.

I used to own a Mac. The hard disk controller failed, and it became about as useful as a brick after less than three years of use. It also got dented around the Ethernet port, and arrive as corner of the screen.
Least durable laptop ever. Would not buy again.
I change my mind, mac master race teehee ;P
>showing off at all
Keep peacocking, kids.
This. Move out of the way, Apple, Microshill is running the show now. You had your time with the MacBook but now you have to make room for the Next BIg Thing©
No more Geniuses, only Pajeet now. Absolutely D E S I G N A T E D
