Long term fan who's slowly becoming disillusioned over time. Around 2011 Macbooks where amazing pieces of hardware. Sure they might not have been the king of the hill specs wise, but they where not terrible either. However they where amazingly solid, brilliantly easy to upgrade due to the simple and understandable construction. Battery goes here, HD there, pop the memory in that slot, and yoink out the DVD, stick in a cradle and thats your second HD. OSX was powerful, well supported for software and if you paired it up with an iphone magical things happened. And it could take an absolute beating. Cue forward 2017. Finally replace it. The Keyboard sucks, the only function for the touchbar is to cause accidental pressings of vital function, literally nothing under $300 plugs into the goddamn Thunderbolt 3 ports, oh and thats the only sort of port it got. And *NOTHING* is upgradable. The rams soldered in, the SSD is soldered in, the battery IS replacable, but good luck finding one third party. And then it falls 3 foot off the couch onto the carpet and the screen cracks and no, apple wont cover that even with apple care. And then to top it off, a week after spending $400 to replace it with a third party screen, voiding my warranty, some a$##$# f##$k breaks into my house and steals it. So yeah, my next macintosh is gonna be a hackintosh, becuase I'm not spending another $4K AUD on something so flimsy and un-upgradeable edit: Oh yeah the one sour point on the 2011s are the AMD GPUs that cook themselves. Apple repairs those for free.
