I understand what you're saying that people need simplicity but your average computer user is an idiot no matter how simple it is, I work in tech support and I talk to apple users all the time that have absolutely no clue what the URL bar is. Even if these people need to save up for a MBP they will because they think it's so great. I would say the average MBP user only uses there computer for facebook, youtube, email, sharing photos, netflix, itunes. That's not rocket science no matter if its on a MBP or a windows laptop.

 

This is all coming from a guy that owned two Macbooks 

LOL

 

I've been using a macbook since I was allowed my own computer... around 2006.

It's pretty hard to switch once i'm used to it, especially after multitouch trackpad.

All windows 8 laptops have multitouch now. It's quite useful, I find myself missing some touch features on my desktop.

I guess if you're into graphic design and stuff that could be good...

That reminds me, I met someone who works at wacom over the summer, very interesting conversation about mac vs pc...

Morons? Harsh language. Do you know how to run a power plant? Design the architecture to a house? Set up a tunnel water pipping system? Each person has their own speciality. But because they aren't too good in computers doesn't mean that they are morons. 

 

 

There are many Win PC morons too.

 

lol dude cmon, it's 2012 most people should know how to operate a computer. comparing that to running a power plant etc is way different. When I said morons I mean computer morons obviously I'm not judging this people overall based on their computer skills.

 

and I will 200% agree with you that that are many many Win PC morons

 

Can we at least agree that the price Apple charges for their laptops is just a little bit insane?

Holy schiit I may even say that there are more Win Pc morons. Most Mac users have asked me easy mistake questions. The larger market PC users ask me the quetions you experience.

 

I don't use the word insane. It is a business. They have a laptop that has prices you don't agree with. And people buy them. What is there to debate on you not liking that people buy a product?

It is a business, a thriving one at that. My main issue is how open they are about boning their customer base on upgrade potential and memory tech that has been around for over a decade just to squeeze every last penny out of you. But if its the right fit for someone, then I would recommend it to them (like I did to my Mom). Would I personally ever considering buying one? No.

As has many companies been and have done.

 

We need to remember that not everyone can replace stuff theirselves.

 

Apple prides its reliability on parts that are highly specific to their computers. Yes your RAM can be self bought and if it passes a certain speed it can be used on a Mac. But that "relaibility" may not be what they can give you. Ram and HDD's that they approve and tested with their own equipment.

Dam, that is quite expensive.

 

Our American system is not that good either.
