How else would they validate themselves? Some people with a certain issue like to buy big cars to compensate for it, some buy macbooks. It's just like when people have to discuss smartphones and the applefag can never say ''my phone'', he just has to say ''my iPhone'' with proper capitalization.

Should I return it for last years model or just take the money back? Am I even allowed to do that if there's nothing wrong with it? I can't justify the 2000 dollars I spent on this average laptop. The older model is only 1500. Canadian prices.

Most of us aren't proud about it. We just get tired of shopping for laptops and Apple laptops are usually decent at worst in most regards, so we end up buying macbooks.

I'm not even kidding. Shopping for laptops is exasperating, because even the more expensive ones (higher end thinkpads, dell XPS, etc) fucking *always* have a handful of dealbreaker/annoying flaws, and even if you by some miracle find a truly excellent generic windows laptop, when it comes time to upgrade you've gotta go through the same shit AGAIN because no windows laptop manufacturer can manage to pull off excellence twice in a row.

Ain't nobody got time for that. With macbooks, I spend an hour comparing the models has available and I buy the damned thing and know it'll be decent instead of spending days or a week reading reviews, checking out laptops in-store, etc and possibly getting a lemon despite those efforts.
