Here's the thing: non-autists on /g/ *don't* make this argument against Macbooks. My argument against Macbooks is not that their pieces of shit, but primarily that they aren't nearly as customizable as Linux. Another (less significant) problem is that they're very overpriced.

>> No.61907345

Most people use Apple computers because they don't care and it's easy for managers to put no thought into issue beyond buying some Macbooks in bulk for employees. Software developers will use whatever the hell they feel like as long as it works with whatever the company uses, and I can guarantee you that if you use OS X because it's Unix-like, there's no reason someone running a Loonux distro can't collaborate with you easily.

I'd agree that they look nice, and have a nice looking screen...

But I seriously can't justify spending 1500 bucks on a laptop that I'll NEVER BE ABLE TO UPGRADE...

My work laptop is using about 1.1tb of data on my SSD and HDD (running a 2.5 SSD and 2.5 HDD). I could probably upgrade my cpu if i need it, I put in 16gb of RAM (for running virtual machines primarily and a little gaming). As it stands on my desk at work. I use two HDD docks, the SD card reader when I need it, 2 of the 3.5mm jacks for audio, the DVD burner for cd images if a flash drive won't cut it / im giving the image away, the HDMI plug for running a 24 in. monitor, an ethernet cable so I get faster network speeds, one USB for my mouse, power cord (obviously) and I still have 2 usbs free to plug in flash drives / whatever i may need.

Why am I mentioning all this? Because the laptop has all of these magical plugs BUILT RIGHT IN!!! I don't need any adapters, or dongles, or converters to use all of my existing equipment.

If I owned a macbook.. I'd need

>a USB C to A adapters / USB hub

>A thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapter

>An external DVD drive (possibly using its own adapter or the USB hub

>A USB to ethernet adapter

> A USB to 3.5mm adapter for my stereo system

And with only a total of 4 Thunderbolt ports, i'd be

1. spending a fuckton of money on adapters
2. might as well use a desktop for my tasks
3. fuck that shit

That picture is exactly why you are so brain washed.

You read the mainstream media, and defend what they say, without critical thinking.

The iPhone case is the right thing to do, small on the outside, battery for another day.

The Magic Mouse 2, I have one, it's okay, it lasts for months, charges fast, and asks for charge a long time before.

The Pencil is just retarded from the verge and the MKBHD gang they control, it comes with a piece to charge the thing with the lightning cable. No need for that, and rarely needs recharging.

Surely beats buying AAAA batteries like the Surface (no rechargeable batteries at that size), but nobody says that, because Microsoft pays them to FUD Apple.

>being this mad that someone dislikes your piece of shit keyboard
I did use it. I know it's easier to think everyone who disagrees with you is lying. Again, enjoy your 0.5mm of travel.

Well look at that, it's almost twice as fast.

> prove the UI is objectively faster than Gnome.
That'd require some pretty complex studies.

From a more casual outlook, how long did it take you to even begin using Gnome and learning how to operate Loonix compared to FagOS? How much extra software do you need for one (Say to get stuff like gestures)? Besides, if you're not using all the Continuity features as part of your workflow, it's pointless to compare.

The average person can literally, buy a Macbook, open the box and start using it. The learning curve is almost non existent, UI is consistent through every piece of software you might use and things are pretty intuitive, so there is less thinking about "how do I do X" and more doing X.

Though again, talking in general. If you're used to a certain think and can't be assed to relearn and/or need certain functionality of Linux, it's all different again.

>I can't prove my claim that it lets people work faster, but here's a bunch of opinions
Every single time, the same myth that macOS is magically faster than everything else from people who've never used anything else.

Most software runs better on Windows now anyway, sorry if you don't believe me.

Apple threw away the advantage they had with PowerPC allowing developers to focus on x86 optimization instead, the byproduct being improvements in Windows deployment.

The UI has literally no advantages over Windows.

>the UI has literally no advantages over windows
I mean, I personally strongly dislike macOS, but it definitely has a better UI than Windows. Especially since Windows has like 3 or 4 UIs. there's the classic one you see in stuff like Administrative Tools, the full-on Metro you see in the new windows update (which coexists next to the old windows update, so you have 2 versions of the same shit program), the slightly metro from file explorer, the dark metro vertical menu from the start menu which is different from the vertical menu you get from right-clicking anywhere else.

You realize that most people didn't have MacOS as their first OS, right? Many people who used it cite it as one of the big sources for switching, and customer satisfaction indicates that it's great too. If it weren't, surely people would look into other stuff, as many Windows users are forced to do eventually.

>Most software runs better on Windows now anyway
That's true.

>The UI has literally no advantages over Windows.
Nigga, what? Have you seen the abomination that W10 is now? The start menu and explorer alone have like 4-5 different UI's frankensteined together. At best they are better at multi monitor handling.

I don't give 2 shits about what you read in some pamphlet in Cupertino. You claimed it was faster to do tasks, prove it or recede.
Also, there is no correlation between popularity and quality. Windows is FAR more popular than macOS and Linux on the desktop, yet here you are trying to show how it's worse.

> there is no correlation between popularity and quality.
Customer satisfaction goes well beyond popularity, and Windows customer satisfaction is lower.

Again, I'm not seeing any sort of proof of your statements, you just keep bringing subjective drivel as damage control. Take care.

I doubt we can ever see hard data on this, but I think it's starting to happen. If you type for 8 hours a day, you want a decent keyboard. No current laptop has a good keyboard, those died with the T420, but we didn't have to stoop this low.

First one I found:: https://betanews.com/2015/04/07/microsoft-vs-apple-which-has-the-most-loyal-and-satisfied-customers/

Given how much Linux is a niche even compared to Apple, surely the quality of the software played a part too beyond muh monopoly?

Are you pretending to be stupid or something? I asked for evidence of your claim that you accomplish tasks faster in macOS.
That's a measure of time.
I believe your happiness charts or whatever, but it doesn't contribute much to this matter. And again, I don't care about Windows.

I can tell the level of arguments I'm up against just from this.

>> No.61917024

>I asked for evidence of your claim that you accomplish tasks faster in macOS.
I said that there isn't any hard evidence already. The popularity among professionals and customer satisfaction are still decent indicators that it might be the case.

>> No.61917063

Or that it might be something else. Maybe they're convincing themselves it's better because they just paid 1k for a laptop. Maybe they like the looks more even if it's slower. It could be anything.

In any case I don't care because I do believe macOS is better than Windows, not that that's a high standard to beat.

I've been a mac user for quite some time, and by now it's actually cheaper for me to buy a new MBP every 3 or 4 years than to buy a new set of software for Windows.
Macbook keyboards have never been the best of the best (Much worse than the previous Powerbook keyboards, at least), but they were pretty OK for a laptop. But this has changed.
I got a new MBP this year and I just can't stand that awful keyboard. It's OK to type a few words, but not when you mash the buttons several hours per day. This will just end in an injury very fast.
2 weeks after buying it, I also ordered a small external keyboard and carry it around with me. So because they were so obsessed with thinnes that the sacrificed the keyboard just so the laptop could be 1mm thinner, I must now carry a lot more stuff that actually takes up much more space.
Tim Cook was a mistake.

You probably bought the last year's model because the keyboard on the 2017 one is perfect. Got changed to provide more feedback
