Since I appreciate counterpoints and feedback I will post this PM I received. Consider it.

"First Page: You can in fact upgrade your mac to an ssd, the glue does not hold it permanently. It simply is for stability, that is why the glass screen is held on by magnets; they know consumers might need easy accessibility.

second page: The "special tools" are NOT REQUIRED. They simply make it easier and prevent accidental damage to the device. And those same tools are very handy when working on other electronics. Other corporations, such as Dish TV or Verizon create products where tampering will void warranties...even some cars have those same warranties. Its common and necessary so people dont screw with the company.

third page: itunes is free, and they let you put your own music in the library. Sync time will obviously take a long time for larger libraries...usb can only transfer data so fast

fourth page: Apple does not allow it simply because it may corrupt the core of the device and will cause trouble when trying to find a solution to the issue especially if its a widespread problem. Jailbreaking will void the warranty because you are essentially altering the operating system.

fifth page: The point of a business to create a fortune, and by using the same plugs, Apple allowed most of their devices to seemlessly work together. Other companies rarely share the same plug, and Apple is looking for a greater profit.

sixth page: They are only protecting the ideas they developed. Apple is one of the only innovative companies. Their success has caused Samsung and Motorola to design phones based on the iphone. Similar to how many car companies began to create crossovers after the Lexus RX gained popularity.

seventh: its business. not moral, but the 's' versions of phones tend to have a substantial revolutionary feature, such as siri which no other device had to my knowledge

eighth: all products tend to have kinks. just look at boeings history

ninth: when they used that advertisement, macs were unpopular and did not have
numerous malware and viruses available.

tenth: siri was never in the app store as a true final app. I recall that there was a bete test, but dont quote me on that. There was an update for the ipad that allowed for siri, and it was free. The strategy of creating new versions of their devices keeps competitors guessing and at bay.

eleventh: Creativity is not judged on the medium, but by the product. Therefore, one can be creative on an imac due to the limitless add ons available by third party companies. Since the os is more user friendly, it is far easier to be creative.

I am not a mac fanboy, but do not post lies or twisted phrases when in fact it seems that you do not know anything apple. There products and strategies have become annoying, but they are just like any other company in any other market."

On number nine macs have a very robust operating system that sandboxes potential malware by default, something that (at least in my experience) no Microsoft computers come with.

Touting Macs for not getting PC viruses is like saying dieting makes you fat because dieters tend to be overweight statistically

I'am writing on a MacBook Pro mid 2012.. it's just a laptop. I bought it about 2 months ago. I was also an Apple hater before but the laptop is really good. I can unscrew the backcover and change everything (but the battery) without losing warranty. The unibody is also great, no fingerprints and everything feels solid. The hardware isn't even that bad as most of people think.

I've never used iTunes, app store or anything like that.. I would still not buy an iPhone/iPad.

TL;TR
MacBook Pros are good laptops, Apple is crap. Give it a chance. OP is a ****** .

I love Macs and Apple in general, because i like to make fun an laugh at stupid hippster doofus wankers who think that they become special by 1. showing of their money 2. imagining they are individual and artistic by cunsuming Apple products and 3. ignoring several simple facts (mp3 players were not invented by Apple, Mac is not better then PC or they got no problems with virus etc)
Funny fact: There are some webpages (for example travel / tourism) who detect whether your browser is online with a PC or a Mac / iPhone - and they modify their prices to be higher for a Mac user, because they assume a "wealthy" Apple fanboy is willing to spent more money on the same deal. Read about it in 2012 and i m still smiling.

simple upgrades: bigger hdd, more RAM. Every notebook i had contact with was upgraded in one or both of those points. If i had a non-upgradeable Mac, i d do 9/11 on Apple store.

I like Apple desktop computers, they're easy to use and the best as far as all the fancy art applications used for design and stuff like that. I've never had a problem with a Mac desktop computer. As for all their other products like the macbook, ipod touch and iphone, do yourself a favor and get something better. My macbook has had to get the hard drive replaced twice (luckily it was still under warranty) And if the college you decide to go to doesn't force you to get a macbook like mine did, get something cheaper or build your own.

The only thing i have that is Apple is my Iphone 4S, and when its time for me to upgrade, i will probably be deviating from Apple for my phone because of this post.

Thank you.

Changing the world one consumer at a time. Feels good man

Apple is the clearly the best company for someone who can't distinguish between technology and an actual apple.

BAM. Didn't expect to make front page with this.

When i was 12 years old just by comparing basic computer specs i knew apple was ******** makes me laugh when my 500$ comp is the same as another 2000$ comp

At the risk of being excommunicated from FJ, I must say that I love macs.   
   
That being said, I agree, Apple as a company is an 						*******					. But as a student musician, macs make studio recording sooooo much less stressful. You can definitely do it with a PC, but at least in my experience, to get the same results you need a 						****					 ton of quality mixers and soundboards, cables, programs etc. that are all integrated by default on a Macbook. When you're up at 5am trying to write a symphony for your nit-picky professor, it makes it a bit simpler (especially in a tiny dorm room). So it depends on what you need it for.

Nothing is integrated on a Mac for those purposes.

It just has a Mic in and a headphone out. They would take that out too if they could get away with it.

You're an exception; what percentage of Apple's customers are actually professional artists who would require that software?

As long as you know the faults, then you may pass.

apple is great for people who just suck with technology 100% true!

I'll be the first to admit that I do. So yeah, it makes life easier. My bad.

I bought my MacBook Pro in 2009 and it still works like a charm. Very dependable piece of machinery.
#293 to #269 - dolphinwing (07/23/2013) [-]
I also bought mine in 2009 and it's crashed 3 times losing everything, 2 of those it had to have the whole hard drive replaced... I've never had a problem with my desktop Macs though
User avatar #261 - shamrockd (07/23/2013) [-]
Stuff like withholding features until the newer model comes out are pretty common business practices... definitely not exclusive to Apple. All any company wants you to do is buy their stuff; Apple is just better at it. If it weren't them, it would be someone else.

I have a macbook and iPod touch, and I actually really like them. not sorry.

Their customers are just as arrogant because they spend ungodly amounts of money on a piece of equipment not worth half it's weight in band-aids.
