But Anon, what you posted is a PC. Don't you mean "Non-Apple PCs?" One can easily compete with the Macbook Pro in a number of ways. Better graphics cards, better batteries (preferably removable batteries), better durability.... Durability is one area I know I'll never trust Apple with, as they've failed me spectacularly before

Name something durable that isn't an intel celery toughbook with a 800x600 display.
Thinkpads, "real" thinkpads, and macbooks are two laptops their fanboys describe as "durable", but fucking fall apart sooner or later. Thinkpad fags buy spare parts and pretend it didn't happen, macfags buy new laptops because you can actually make money selling a broken macbook.
How garbage is your display since you didn't even include it in the $2500?
Remember the MacBook is a full computer with a display, great touchpad, keyboard, webcam, 2880x1800 IPS display, speakers, battery etc
None of you faggots even own a MacBook. Your just a bunch of NEETS try to make a couple of dollars shilling whatever your told too. Post timestamp pictures using your iPhone, no excuses.
Remember anyone who starts a apple thread without posting proof is a shill.
people who travel and need a gaming-capable laptop are an extreme minority.
The vast majority would be fine with having a good stationary and a decent laptop, and they could get it cheaper than that piece of shit Macbook.
The autism must be really strong in os x haters.
If it throttles it's shit.
If it doesn't throttle, therefore obviously getting hot, it's shit.
I almost forgot why I filter every apple related word in this board.
If apple is so great and only poorfags don't buy it then these shill must have phone made by apple. Stop deflecting and defending. They will never post timestamped pictures because they don't own it, they are shills.
for starters you can avoid spending $400 or whatever ungodly amount of money apple would charge to upgrade to 16 gigs of ram and whatever they charge for a 1tb ssd
i have a 2011 macbook pro and the main reason i dont want to get a new one is because i couldnt just buy more ram and storage space myself
that and no matte display
Don't have a timestamp
I have more pictures
Editing the thread into I picture I've already seen doesn't count as a timestamped picture. Renting a tiny apartment and throwing walmart sheets on a mattress on the floor, damn now I feel bad, I didn't think you were that poor.
>The autism must be really strong in os x haters.
>If it throttles it's shit.
You know, it's possible to have a laptop that doesn't reach 97C or throttle. My Thinkpad for example has the same CPU as OP's MBP. It tops out at about 70C with CPU at full load, and about 80C with both CPU and GPU going.
And it only has one fan.
oh yeah it looks like it starts and ends at 16 now. too bad its 500 fucking dollars to go to a 1tb ssd from 512, and $800 to go there from 256.
and no, just because its pci-e doesnt mean shit because unless you are transferring from one to another you will NOT notice the difference. i guarantee my 2011 with an 840 evo is going to open shit the same
>radeon r9 mr370x
My 780ti wants to have a word with you
a friend had that car for a while
it was brand new
different engine parts broke multiple times over a course of 2 years
he sold it because he was tired of getting it constantly fixed
Why would you even need an additional drive? Partitioning should work.
Also OS X can be made to work in a VM, though last I tried it, it wasn't as pleasant to use as native, due to using the GPU a lot. Of course a KVM setup with PCIe passthrough should fix that.
>how can PCs even compete?
At most, they can only aspire to be spectators while apple products deliver all of the pleasure and productivity to its users while they stand on the sidelines, every knowledgeable user knows this except for greasy manchildren who cannot get a real computer because muh gaymun.
