        So true. Ubuntu was speedy and stable but I could never get used to gimp. Gotta have my PS.

Or, the same retina macbook pro with RAM benches soldered on the motherboard, not letting users make upgrades or change the benches with faster ones. Oh, also the SSD drive isn't compatible with the aftermarket ones, blocking the users' choice from switching to faster and cheaper drives. Also the battery is soldered too, so, if it breaks, you're fucked.

            The resolution is amazing, but the image quality is garbage, because you have Nvidia Optimus with IGP and an Nvidia Geforce GT650M with 1 GB of VRAM(really?) Not even touching on all the other problems or the iPhone crap. And build quality? Please. It's all cheap Foxconn shit or old outdated hardware.

            All this "quality" for 300% more money than similar products with much better hardware. I hate Apple because of the way they lock down their systems, spy on their userbase, and spend millions on patent shenanigans all while charging their loyal brainwashed drones much more money for inferior products. Anyone who likes freedom should hate Apple, period.

            P.S.: I don't care if you "fall out with me", it's the internet, and I'm entitled to my own opinions as you are. If you post a comment in my direction I'm going to respond every time. I suggest not being offended or being so personally invested in a company that doesn't give two shits about you and sees you as a walking shekel. Despite my comments here seeming rather opposite of my intentions, I don't actually care remotely about whether someone else likes x company or not. I like no companies, really, I just especially hate Apple. I can see the fault in anything.

            And yeah donating small sums is good for PR with all those polo wearing vegans at Starbucks. Apple is GREEN
            Sure. Great line of typical Apple-hating defence there,label somebody a fanboy because they have a fucking different opinion or taste towards someone with lesser quality or expectations. (do share why you hate Apple, most just have a pre-convieved notion that Apple are a piece-o-shit without giving them two thoughts, based on a 0.1GHZ processor speed difference or $200 price difference)

            Spying on their users is laughable EVERYONE is doing it (and patent wars, by the way, don't be so ignorant to avoid that) Doesn't make it right, but there's nothing we can do. People buy Apple shit knowing full well that once you go Apple, go don't go back because it makes one's life easier and more fluent. Take a look at those whom use Apple stuff, they are intelligent people most of the time creatives, not dumb brain-fucks whom sit in the dark hacking people all day or playing games (on Facebook!) "Should" hate Apple if you want "freedom", that's dumber than avoiding HFCS. Again, pre-convieved notions of someone whom probably has never touched an Apple product, is threatened by their capabilities/design/market increase or just feel that avoiding Apple will mean they are rebellious.

            Apple users buy their shit because it fulfills their needs in a high quality class of product (beyond design) and have supreme after sales support for the very expensive devices. Geeks only buy other brands because they like to think they are rebels against apple and because in 2 months they can dismantle their $500 PC and change a $40 component. Sure there is a market for that, but like I said, geeks whom care about a number, not productivity from a well produced and thought out device. (another reason ever company but Apple have very few product lines and update most hardware anually and not because of some Tech conference to get media attention) Ironically, since Samsung manufacture a LOT of stuff for Apple, it's Apple whom give a damn about Samsung! Samsung make for themselves yet used under-age labour (fact). Also, HTC have only just started copying the idea of CNC iPhone cases. Apple did this years ago. I'm guessing they don't measure in MICRONS the degree of fit to each phone chasis. BTW, a lot of apple hardware is made in the USA or UK, it's just assembled in China. The "cheap Foxconn shit" is the shit that doesn't matter anyway. People care about how it feels, not whether the plastic inside is microns denser than another brand.

            PS. I got the Retina MBP a months after it came out. Huge demand = shit quality control and I had a IR screen. What did I do? Complain and within 2 days I got a brand spanking new one, with £70 refund for the inconvenience. Please tell me of anyone whom give that, like Sony with their even more expensive "comparable" laptop.

            The PR stuff is perhaps true, and I hate the fact that Mac users are painted as being vegans at starbucks... Americans.

              I got a chuckle out of one poster telling us we should be talking about more important things. He meant diet, not world peace
              "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

              In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                  What a bunch of senseless drivel, right down to stereotypes and labeling which is typical of a consumerist sheep who buys into Apple's propaganda. Hardware is everything, and any creativity can be performed better on better hardware. I fail to see how Apple products automatically make one creative and intelligent. If anything it's the opposite, because they bought into a brand.
                  It's not 0.1GHz, you failed to address all the other things I brought up in response to you and earlier in this thread.

                  You're just spewing the same nonsense that all other Apple drones do. This opinionated, highly offended posts make you a fanboy, whether you like it or not.

                  I don't need tech support for anything, I'm fully capable of troubleshooting my own computer without being ripped off by Habeeb after an hour of being kept on hold listening to a robot tell me it cares about my business.

Even when striking your personal feelings from the equation in the first comment, you still told me to STFU when calling out Steve Jobs for stealing the UI for the Mac from Xerox(this is fact, not rumor)

                    I'm not acting like a "twit", it's just I seem to always share the least popular opinion from the majority of people and I'm not afraid to post it because I don't really care how I look on the internet. Most people censor themselves or act unlike themselves in order for people to like them. I don't care.
                    You're acting like a twit because you are getting all wound up and emotionally invested in bashing one kind of machine and glorifying another while calling anyone who happens to like another type of machine a "cultist". Cognitive dissonance much?

                    I only got emotionally invested and angry when you called my friend a "detestable person". That was when I told you to STFU. I don't usually swear, even on the internet, unlike you, Mr. Potty Mouth.

                    The rest of it is just too silly. I don't care what you or anyone else thinks about a machine.

                    Give it a rest, Derp.

                      Could one argue that Apple makes an excellent patent lawsuit company?

                            I'm not glorifying anything, there is not one brand I support more than any other based on name alone. I prefer Windows, though I use Linux for browsing most of the time, simply because they offer a superior product that isn't as closed off and freedom invading as iOS is. Linux is entirely free, as in freedom, this is why I prefer it for browsing and listening to music and other stuff. Windows for games and stuff Linux does not do well.

                            But that's cool, sorry if I offended you about your friend. I didn't even know, but it still doesn't change my opinions. I would have just handled it with less potty mouth and more tact.

                            Nah, there is a fix

                              I don't care. You have your opinion. Fine. Give it a rest.
