Hello. I'm a yuropoor and in my country at least, Apple is not very popular (except for iPhone - those are very popular).

Macs are perceived as expensive toys for less technical people. One thing I never understood about this whole Mac thing is, though, why do some people who are highly technical, almost geniuses (like the people working at the most advanced artificial intelligence company, DeepMind) - insist on using Macs?

Do you think such people keep macOS or install something else on it?

Seriously I have seen so many pictures of genius scientists, innovators, AI researchers with PhDs in math and compSci always using Macs. What gives?

Because it's Unix with a much better desktop, commercial software and hardware support, good font rendering and 99.9% of the open source software they need for work runs on it flawlessly.

On top of that, nobody runs big computing jobs on a single laptop or a desktop anymore anyways. If you have a job that does a substantial amount of processing you develop it on the laptop with a small amount of test data and then run it on a cluster.

We have this thread almost every day, made by the same literal paid shills. The same exact answer is given every single time: because those people develop for all 3 major OS's and since macOS is locked down to macbooks, they need one for development. This answer gets ignored every single time.

That's the actual answer. They don't get banned because they rephrase the question, but it's definitely shilling. A lot of their posts have identical word-per-word stories about how they switched from Linux/Windows to Mac and how it's so much better for a list of cherry picked reasons.

So we went from "the most competitive" to "one of the best".

Other computers have aluninum chassis without holding components with glue. You're just conveniently ignoring any flaws that don't suit your opinion.

>>So we went from "the most competitive" to "one of the best".

those two aren't mutually exclusive, competitive means it can fight with others so it's one of the best, not the very best, otherwise it wouldn't be competitive it would be definitively (pronounced DEFFF-INN-IHH-TIV-LEE) the best

Macshit is LITERALLY for braindead gullible retards and those that believe everything their TV tells them to believe.

>> No.61374590

Not at all. On the hardware side I don't like the new keyboard they smacked on there Macbook and Mackbook Pro. Plus I think the ekstra display on the Pro is a bad gimmick. And on the software side I really don't like OSX at all. I prefer Linux or Windows by far.
None of this changes my previous points tho. Macs still have by far the best build quality of any laptops. I wish it was different cause' I really hate their new keyboard. I'm very much looking forward to the day the Zenbooks raise their production quality to the point of Macs.

>> No.61374631

You still haven't showed how they have the best build quality, and I've shown at least one point where they're definitely below average. Repeating a claim doesn't make it true.

Build quality is hard to argue in text format. I'd say - Go to a store or just watch a review so you get the "feel" of it. If you haven't used a lot of different systems it's obviously not easy to see. If you feel the hinge and the seamless design it's pretty obvious tho.

Yeah you feel build quality of products with your hands? Are you dense? And no I don't need to be using a system to be able to see the quality of said system. Tried a Zenbook too for example, they have acceptable build quality as well. But I guess you must be extremely invested in to your specific system since you refuse to see why others chose differently from us. Try to be more open minded Anon.
