    DigitalHermit reacted to QcDExtreme in What do people hate about Apple?   
    Okay i'm not sure if I've ever replied to these types of threads but here's my opinion i don't hate apple they have there strengths such as my main music player for when i'm in the shower and playing music through a Bluetooth speaker is my ipod nano 7th gen because it's simple and rather durable after being dropped many a times before i had a smart phone and has 0 scratches on the screen but 1-2 scratches on the sides. This also isn't my first Ipod i also owned an IPod nano 4th gen that i loved to death til i eventually lost it at school and it probably got stolen and i was out a music player when walking to and from school. However most of the time if i'm mowing my lawn or riding around i still use my ipod because my phone likes to randomly pause my music due to vibrations or something idk but i think apple just owns the small form factor mp3 player department some of you may say that you can just use your phone so it's 1 less thing to carry however my ipod nano is tiny and i hardly notice it so to me that's BS. but i'll never own a mac because it'd be like learn how to use a computer all over again and i've been using a pc since i could reach the mouse and keyboard on my mom's desk growing up which was when i was about 3 however i can still fix them and have used them but it's not for me maybe it i could get a mac book for insanely cheap new and i had them money for it i would consider it maybe depend on what else was out there i could afford and how it would suit me even though all i do in my laptop is browse facebook and watch youtube videos. But what i do hate about apple is the fact that whenever i talk to some people who own a mac they are all snooty and privileged about it and act like i'm from the stone age so it the attitude that the fanboys of apple which is why i can never step foot in a starbucks. 
     
     
    TL;DR: Apple= ipod nanos good, Apple fanboys= have a stick up their ass

    You do have some very good points about apple but also you have some wrong points that you don't know what you are talking about. Apple has never really invented anything they have mostly only redone and inovated things. Please watch this 
    . Saying apple invented the touch screen phone or the tablet is just plain fanboy and ignorance. You are right about the iPod that it was a huge game changer in the way we enjoyed music portably. One point you should have put in there was you left out itunes that was something apple did that had a huge impact (not the software cuz it sucks and i don't wanna update something everyday, i have java and flash doing it don't need itunes ) Now when you talk about macs being more expensive that pc that is true and you posting on forums that are mostly pc enthusiasts and builders, that is not a war you would win on here. Next part, OS_X is much easier to use than windows because of how the UI is. But it is preference if you take a full time mac use and put them on a pc they would be lost and vice versa. They final point you made that made me die of laughter was that apple is the most valuable company in the world that is just complete ignorance. Please see this before making that statement http://www.nasdaq.com/article/a-closer-look-at-the-worlds-10-most-valuable-brands-cm356824 . Now before you start saying i'm a fanboy and just hate apple i do not, Yes primaraly I use a windows based pc and an android smartphone. But i also have an ipad have had ipods, and use macs everyday at school. If you look at core specs than most of the time apple loses and you cant argue with that. Unlike some people i can acually say why i don't like apple products. I think they are overpriced, i don't like the UI of the iphone or OS_X, I game which sucks on a mac, if apple dropped its prices and made the iphone actually stack up with the HTC One M8, Samsung S5, LG G3 than i mgiht get an iphone but i dont see that happening sooooo ya rant over.Thank you for making this thread for the 2000th time.

    That mouse slowed down my workflow during my student assistant days by a huge margin... Too high sensitivity and it just shoots off everywhere, too low and you'd run out of desk space before you get to what you need... and I had a huge desk back then...

    Microsoft invented the touch screen tablet, Samsung designed it better, and then Apple marketed it. They didn't invent it, they were just better at marketing. That is their ingenuity, marketing.If you had to compare Apple to actual inventors, Apple would be more like a chef. A chef often times doesn't create or invent, just combines or adds onto. Apple will see an idea, take (steal?) it, and then improve upon it. The iPhone and iPad existed as other ideas and products long before Apple did.

    Fish around the net for a laptop with an A10 or at least a dedicated graphics chip you can swap with something more powerful. My laptop has an A10-4600m and can comfortably get 28 fps on medium settings at 768p when running Unigine Valley. It's not even the most powerful mobile A10, so if you can find a 5750m that would be your best bet. It's not a gaming laptop but as long as you keep it plugged in it should fare pretty well on most games. just don't expect to be running any anti-aliasing or iso-filtering, that'll just kill your fps. I was benchmarking with Unigine so that's pretty impressive. I have tried games like X3 (which is relatively recent) and they run like butter on an APU. They're also quite a lot more energy-efficient than I expected. I shoved an SSD in my laptop and it now gets around nine hours on a charge. before that it could stretch to seven.

    It's not going to be the most flashy, detailed, high-res gaming experience you've ever had, but it'll certainly do what you need it to. It's also a lot better in multiple threads than the i5s or i3s.

    Alternatively you could wait for the mobile Kaveri APUs to come out, but I have no idea when that will be. If they do the laptops they are installed in are going to kick intel's graphical asses.

    The laptops make good heaters in the winter as well. :3

    I remember a time when the saying was "Don't trust what you read on the internet." While this might still be true for some cases, when it comes to news, no. You're practically forced to get factual information from the internet these days vs the shoddy reporting on the air.
