    Coming from somebody with deep knowledge of component level repair of Macbook boards, I can tell you they are neither good quality, nor trustworthy. Not only do they spontaneously die, they have now removed the service backup port with their BGA storage.

    Yes some people need a Mac but I would never recommend or purchase one.

    A real shame since Logic is my favorite DAW and their sound quality is excellent.

    I love their designs and interface, but not a fan of the price, of course

    I like their products but too excpensive - hackintosh all the way :) but then I heard rumor that Apple might design their chip/card etc then maybe hackintosh are done just like jailbreak communities. idk

    Short summary: Apple does make good quality products but highly overpriced unfortunately. But what I love with Apple products is the seamless user experience, I love MacOS because of the user experience and convenience that it offers.

    Apple had it's place in the world when a visionary like Steve Jobs was leading the charge. He forced Microsoft to struggled and release various iterations of windows that we very weak--until windows 10. Now Jobs is gone and his vision is being washed away as Apple's "greed" has taken over. Their need to be the biggest and not the best will be their demise!

    I think the radiation that emanates from Apple products generates asynchronistic transgenderism and turns real men into sockless Hipsters...with really tight pants.

    Scientifically speaking, that is. Just sayin'

    I started out on an Apple computer before switching to Windows. I still do like Apple and Mac, but never had the chance to buy one instead of a Windows PC.

    As a computer repair technician, I think apple is getting worse every time they release a new device.
    Apple is serious on their displays. They always use high quality panels on all their devices. This seriously increases the cost of their devices.
    Apart from that, the hardware itself is crap. Years ago you could replace almost everything on your mac/imac: ram, hdd, optical drive, wireless adapter. Now there's 0 possibility to an upgrade. That's planned obsolence!
    The mainboards quality is garbage. They change things that work perfectly and replace them with cheaper parts that crap out when the warranty ends. Remember all the extend warranty programs because of the many complaints?
    Also, let's talk about thermals on macbooks. There's not one single mac that doesn't overheat. They are designed to run at max temperature and remain silent. That's completly stupid because even tough the cpu can handle the temperature, other components around it can't. Is it that hard to change the default fan curve Mr Apple engineers?
    People also like the design. In my opinion, the design is the same since Steve Jobs passed out. But people still like it and find it original.

    TLDR; apple is all about the brand and aesthetics
