and why the hell is that necessary? Apple stands, for me personally, for high end stuff. And 2gb is a joke, a 8gb USB thumb drive costs 4$

Yes I have to agree you should have checked the file size of the music folder before purchasing the iPod, not really Apple's fault here. 

 

Ipod shuffles are for people who want something light with no more than a few hours worth of music so they can work out, job or whatever. . .  Surely you would know this before buying?

Yes lets blame apple for you being a bit thick. I do hope you are just trolling here.

In retrospect, they probably assumed you weren't tech savy (as is probably in their training). If a grandma walked in and said "something small" they could mean, "I have two albums from the 50's that I really want to listen to." It's worth it to check out a product thoroughly before purchasing, and it's even better if you do all the researching online! Plus apple is just not really worth it for the price other than a smooth UI (which I can achieve with android products anyway) IMO.

How to end a never-ending argument

inspired by this post and the facebook status

 

Being a gamer, I understand how specs are really important when it comes to the performance of those specific types of applications.

But why are people so bothered about specs in Apple computers? Why do people feel the need to comment on everything about how

shit Apple are?

I really want to know what people hate about Apple, but hold up and hear me out. Like I said before, I'm a gamer too. I have a reasonably powerful gaming machine that cost the same as my MacBook Pro which I use for- my work.

I'm a computer science student with a Mac. People look at me like I'm alien when I use it in lessons, and people are always complaining about the cost of Macs when I'm using mine in the universities Mac laboratories. People always say, "oh it's stupid how this works", "why can't I right click this is so retarded", "scrolling is backwards how stupid is that" but I don't hear complaints when people use Windows. In fact, people just rage in silence every time Windows crashes and applications freeze, and don't want to tell everyone about it. Why is that?

 

Please tell me. I really couldn't do my work as efficient without a Mac. Yeah there's something psychological about the price that motivates me to do a little more with my expensive hardware, but I just couldn't work without the precise trackpad and mouse tracking, poweruser-friendly keyboard shortcuts for everything and the ability to still use the rest of my computer when one application crashes.

 

 

 

 

Before you post, let me counter a few arguments you may have:

 

Apple are overpriced!:

Are they? While you might see specs being the thing that costs the most in a system, I see rock solid stability, ease of use and exceptional design of the operating system itself justifying the cost.

 

People only use them to use Facebook!:

Not true in the slightest. I've never seen one of these coffee-shop hipsters in my life. I don't have an instagram account and my Mac friends that do certainly don't waste their precious battery life on instagram. Everyone I know that has a Mac has them for a reason. From programmers and freelancers, all the way to student clothing designers. My old school got them and the students have been doing really well in terms of art and music since, and I see their work all the time. And when we're not in work, we catch up on our social life like everyone else.

 

Mobile hardware in a desktop? Pah!:

Mobile hardware isn't bad hardware. It means it's incredibly power efficient. People don't understand that the reason Apple use mobile chips is because the general audience for a given price point don't need super-powerful hardware.

This reminds me of greasy and obnoxious sales people. You should buy this product, because it's faster. If only people asked themselves... will they ever use the full power of the machine?

Couple this with apples excellent design philosophy, and you get a piece of beautiful hardware, that has enough horsepower as one would need to ensure the machine meets thermal requirements and stays reliable in the process. Bingo. I want one.

 

The Mac Pro is stupid!:

This has been busted by Linus himself. I will pay you $10 IF you can find a system that is built with workstation grade hardware designed to last a loooong time, features dual workstation GPUs, ECC Memory which MASSIVELY improves reliability, expandable as much and as fast as thunderbolt, and all fits inside a case that stays quiet, cool, and less than the volume of your (considerably smaller than usual) trashcan. and overall, is cheaper than the Mac Pro.

 

 

 

Open discussion, lets go!

Yes they are overpriced where I live.

$2500 for the worst model of the MBP 13"?

IPhones were $1500 when flagship android phones were $800...now android flagships reached to $1000 and the IPhone is $1250.

And I don't even get Apple-like costumer support because I'm probably going to buy from a reseller!

 

In the US Apple makes more sense.

Here,not at all.

They are definitely overpriced here in the UK. No doubt.

Also, funnily enough i have had macs erase my usb drives, crash and power off while im working (imac not macbook) and have had no issues with windows.

So please forgive me if i have no love for apple.


Everything said by me is my humble opinion and nothing more, unless otherwise stated.

Apple makes some awesome stuff. Most people take a dislike to them because it's "cool" to dislike them, especially in this kind of community.

 

Since when has OS X been locked down? ...Never lol


You guys are crazy. You know you guys are self-destructive. There's a funny farm somewhere and it's got your names written all over it. But I'm gettin' outta here.
