What the fuck is up with college students and macs /g/. I don't understand the appeal. These people are going to be running our countries soon.

>What the fuck is up with college students and macs

One of the biggest reasons i see it is Students on Financial Aid, Poorfags are alloted certain government monies to buy essentials from the college, and many offer laptops, iDevices, and Mac products. So when life gives you a free macbook, you take that shit

> I don't understand the appeal.

They're pretty, and out of the box, less shitty than your traditional shit-filled pre-built laptops. Good Design, great first party apps. A huge thing that i see for college is that it's got good battery life.

Above all - everything i mentioned is Heavily marketed by the apple team -

Combine that with the fact that pre-built windows based laptops are slow, full of bloatware, suck ass at a cheap price, people go with the mac that just werks

A person well versed in tech will find better laptops to fill their needs for cheaper, but the person who wants results now buys a macbook

Half of /g/ uses MBPs anyway, I have a Thinkpad and a MBP. It's only the hardcore GNUtards and the gaymen kiddies who get all spergy about Apple products.

hurr durr.

Linux user here, hate Apple more than Microsoft. Apple are worse in almost every way... Vendor lock-in on the hardware, walled-garden software, horrible GUI design (lol, here, have ONE menu, enjoy wasting time trying to carry out menu actions while switching from one application to another!) etc, etc.
>>
>>47056987
At least you choose the lock in.
Microsoft loves to spread their software lock in everywhere.
I've never had a situation where I've had a problem because of apple lock in.
Often times it's the opposite.

Microsoft? Not so much.

Now, granted, they treat their customers like idiots, and are full of false advertising, but not my problem.

People who use apple products, whether its a mac book or an iphone are all stupid and normies. They are 95% of the people who don't like to think for themselves.
They are the kind of people who want it easy in life and do not want to engage in something which they do not consider as "important".
For example, they do not think technology is important and learning new things is important as far as they get what they want. (And this is what Apple is exploiting. Even MS users fall into that category but at-least they know how to install, uninstall, crack or copy programs and files.)
They are the most ignorant and narcissists people on the planet and there are lots of them as I mentioned above.
These people are generally the ones who think Hitler gassed jews and faggots because they are different without knowing the real reason behind it.
These people are the ones who are ruining our planet and must be eradicated because they will never change because they think they have something important to do with their life. You know what that important thing is? To breed like rats and make carbon copies of themselves to further damage human intelligence and the planet.
If someone is not interested in how politics, economics and science work and only talks about money and having fun then most probably they are macfags and should be shot on sight.

>At least you choose the lock in.

This is true as far as any vendor goes... You can always choose not to use the product(s) of any vendor who's pulling that particular stunt...

>Microsoft loves to spread their software lock in everywhere.

Agreed, I just think Apple are worse for doing it with hardware as well, and with a ridiculous mark-up on that hardware too.

>I've never had a situation where I've had a problem because of apple lock in.
>Often times it's the opposite.

Examples of Microsoft lock-in problems you've had that Apple doesn't also do?

>Now, granted, they treat their customers like idiots, and are full of false advertising, but not my problem.

Not really.

When I get emailed a docx, or when want to use netflix (I don't use netflix, but it's a good example), etc.....

I've never encountered some proprietary apple format.
Closest I've came is AAC, which isn't a big deal.

Also Microsoft at my uni took over the damn email, so I have to use their exchange crap.

>Now, granted, they treat their customers like idiots, and are full of false advertising, but not my problem.
I was referring to apple with this statement.
Microsoft is a lot better regarding this, as long as they don't go full FUD.
>>
>>47057148
Yeah. Microsoft are dicks for not supporting my Raspberry Pi with Windows. Fucking bullshit vendor lock-in.
>>
>>47057172
My point is, apples lock in only gets you if you're stupid enough to buy into their ecosystem.
It has very limited reach outside apple.

As an economics master, I don't understand how you are so surprised by this.

It's simple marketing, Apple has marketed and priced itself as the king of the hill, and (tech illiterate) people believe it.

Also buying more expensive shit acts as both a signal to outsiders that you have money and people derive status and subsequently utility from it.

tl;dr most people are dumb consumer whores.
