Placebo affect. Also, if you're going to spend more than $1.3k on a laptop, you're going to make damn sure you enjoy it (ie. post-purchase rationalization).

you don't have to baby sit it all the fucking time. no need to endlessly set up shit and compile shit and track down why some shit coded by some retard doesn't compile or install.

it's a computer who need to get shit done and don't wanna waste their life on pointless fixing.

ITT retards.

I spent $1500 on a Precision with a QuadroK1000M for CAD shit without having to be cooped up at home all day, but it absolutely sucked in performance compared to my $800 desktop.

Sold it and spent the money on a new setup at home and enjoying it far more even though I lost $200 on reselling the laptop.

It's irrelevant how much money I make. The fact that you attack people who don't own one as "being a poorfag" reflects your insecurity.

It's not about the machine, it's about being able to compare yourself to others.

You aren't a programmer, you aren't a technophile....you're an insecure fashionista just trying to fit in.

Go buy a $6,000 Rolex. That will show me how superior you are.

Right. You're suffering the mistakes of a 3 decade old filesystem that corrupts your files on a daily basis, and an antique horrific mess of a userspace from the same people that created the Apple Bomb error, and bolted on top of an experimental BSD kernel, and passing it off as a real OS.

You gotta respect Apple though, they made a *NIX variant that's more bloated, more insecure, and more unstable than even Windows. That's a real achievement.

How is anyone too dumb to "figure out" Windows? And what would that even entail?
>>
>>47075499
Whenever you run into a problem in Windows, the first place you should look is in the Event Viewer.
All errors are located there, and once you start recognizing the codes, you can quickly pin point errors and solutions. 90% of the Windows users never reach that point.

No, you are not. There are major issues with lecture format classes with laptops, too much distraction and you lose a valuable asset by taking hand notes and recompiling them later. It forms better connections for retention.

You know, using a Mac isn't a matter of being 'too dumb' for Windows or Linux. It's a matter of being smart enough to want Linux over Windows, and then being smart enough to realize that time it's money, and Linux is only free if your time is worthless.

That person, who values both the functionality of a *nix and the ease of use associated with an OS that's actually designed for end users, chooses a Mac.

>>
>>47078247

Idk, I still think people who buy macs are stupid (ok, let's rephrase that to 'seriously misguided') for not opting for an optimum money/performance ratio.

None of these other considerations strike me as got-wrenching as being duped into paying hundreds of dollars more just for that ugly logo.

The (often shameless) proprietary aspect of the software also kills it for me. You, the customer, are treated like a cash cow. It's a matter of principle to me, and many others too probably.

That said, you don't have to install Arch if you want to use Linux. I find Ubuntu exceedingly accessible and stable.
>>
>>47070969

OSX is much buggier and requires more pain in the ass maintenance work than Windows 7 does.
>>
>>47079075

Ubuntu sucks. I have an extensive history with it, including one incident where I wasn't getting a GUI in a fresh install.

And what do you mean by 'performance'? Specs aren't everything. I judge the performance of a computer partly by ease of use, accessibility, efficiency of the user experience, and amount of maintenance. Macs are great at being low-maintenance and actually functioning. Ubuntu... Not necessarily, in my experience.

And, for what it's worth, I didn't pay hundreds of dollars more for an ugly logo. I paid hundreds of dollars more for a compact design, an attractive, durable chassis, a Unix-like OS with actual commercial support, and excellent warranty support.

Because it's Unix, it has an actual window management philosophy unlike Windows, and it's more fleshed out than any Linux DE that hasn't been meticulously riced for weeks on end. It's a fully featured OS with hundreds of billions of dollars backing it designed to be used effortlessly by bother powerusers and retards alike.

People can meticulously manage files and workspaces and windows to their liking or they can leave everything open all day and search for every file in the All My Files view and switch between apps effortlessly with expose and mission control. Both approaches work flawlessly and efficiently. OS X feels better because it's the only real commercial OS. Windows has for over decade stayed afloat only because of it's reputation by poor people and manchildren on /g/ alike as the "working man's" "technical" operating system.
