-No vidya
-Terrible OpenGL performance due to Apple hampering.
-Still OpenGL 3.x due to Apple hampering
-Terrible multimonitor support

The audio is nice though, still no other OS which can do the things OSX can
>Aggregate audio devices are the fucking best thing ever.

Wouldn't hurt to have a real Virtualization platform with IOMMU and PCI-e passthrough support.

>right-click
Ctrl+Click and/or a PC mouse are all that's required. Finger gestures on the touchpad eliminate the need.

You can enable 3rd party installs from the security menu in system settings.

Too many reasons to list. Most of it is subjective anyway.

The MacBook Air line is rumored to be refreshed very soon.
I would suggest you wait and see what the refresh brings.
If nothing else, you will probably be able to buy the current model for less.

>ability to install programs not in the app store?
This is already enabled by default. Only apps missing a "signature" aren't automatically accepted by default.
But all you have to do is right-click, open instead. Or flip a switch in Preferences to enable it permanently.

Epic shitpost indeed, faggot.
>>
>>46831322
Macbooks have had right click since 2008.
Not just two-finger-tap either...

I use mostly Linux, and keep around a Windows partition for vidya . I see nothing wrong with OSX, it's just not my cup of tea for whatever reason. I've tried it, and it didn't seem to offer any benefit I could personally take advantage of, since I'm already so used to Linux and Windows that ease of use doesn't matter. Whatever floats your boat, though.

>HURR DURR OMG LINUX? LOOSER VIRGIN NECKBEAR AHAHAHAHAHA I BET YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS AND SPEND ALL DAY FIXING BROKEN SHIT

Keep thinking that OS choice defines a person in real life. Or that Linux "constantly breaks".

>HURR DURR VIDYA? GROW UP YOU FUCKING MANCHILD

It's a fucking hobby. Who the fuck cares. Everyone I've ever met sure as fuck doesn't. The kind of people who make a big deal out of people playing vidya in their spare time, are the same people that obsessively try to fit in so hard to the point where all it does is give off an aura of utter insecurity.

>>

im struggling to think of other companies that do this
>>

Nearly all of them.

Only difference between an Acer and Macbook rolling off the same line is the recycled milk cartons vs recycled beer cans for the casing, and a $700 retard tax for the glowing logo.
>>
>>46833425
Really? It's a rather common practice; Foxconn is huge and manufactures much more than Apple devices. iirc The PS3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii were all manufactured at Foxconn (at least some units, there are other plants as well)

china does not allow Taiwanese companies to fabricate in china.. because the chinese government is fucking bananas

Their price at least accurately reflects what you're getting unlike the Macbooks.

Why can't I go to an external display without forcing dedicated GPU?
Why can't I go clamshell mode without plugging it in?
Why does simply moving the mouse wake it from sleep, but if the system is awake but the display is in power mode, I have to physically click the button to wake the display up?
Why can't the finder sort files by folders on top? And on that topic, why is the finder still inferior to windows explorer?

I just got an MBA because I literally couldn't find anything else. Chromebooks look nice, but the ultraportable ones aren't available on my country yet, and Sony Vaio is kill so I couldn't find their ultrabooks either. There are some pretty light and thin Acer laptops, but reading reviews everyone complained about the touchpad and wifi, so I had to get an MBA, it was the only laptop that would last 10 hours and wouldn't break my back when I had it in my backpack.

Yeah, it's expensive, that's for sure, but it's easily the best quality laptop I've used, so I think it's worth it.

OSX is ok, looks less powerful than windows or linux, but performs better so I'm fine with it.

>reading reviews

The only apple product reviews are positive reviews because if you don't sign a contract promising a positive review, you don't get a review sample.

If you don't get a review sample, you miss out on pre-release reviews and your entire business model is fucked because people will go somewhere else and no longer need to read your site.

Good job getting scammed.

What does the OS have to do with opening a computer case?
>>
Everyone should be comfortable on any OS/multiple OS provided they aren't retarded.

OS exist to run apps, and all OS are free (as in, I don't have to pay for them) so I run whatever runs the apps I want. I don't pay for those either. I can afford them but I don't give a fuck about the rich.

OS wars are kiddie shit. If I want an OS X app (I can't think of any I need at all) I'll torrent and Hackintosh a desktop to run it and other OS. (Laptops are for Facebook, not real work, because lappy ergonomics suck and their displays are tiny no matter how good they may be.)

Pretty much this. I use Windows because it is the most useful OS for my needs, but if all I have access to is my gf's MacBook I'm very able to work on that. I have everything I need saved on OneDrive so I can work anywhere. If you get the hang of it, OSX is just as easy to use as Windows 8.1.
