Don’t lie Anon, it does all these things just as natively as any Windows or GNU/Linux version.

Incorrect, Gnome is the prettiest desktop. Also about as customiseable. Apples do ship with nice screens though.

Nature is shit, the correct type of wallpaper to use is abstract cgi bullshit.

>punched aluminium

They probably only use it because its cheaper than quality plastic, and softer too.

Call me when they make a proper stainless steel laptop, oh wait they wont, they only make cheap chink shit

>> No.63362278

> Plastic is superior

>> No.63362285

Unibody aluminum is god-tier manufacturing. Does Apple overprice their shit and have huge margins? Of course, but only because 1. Chinese labor is fucking cheap and 2. there's no competition for an actual laptop that doesn't look like shit (Surface laptop was closest).

>> No.63362300

Fuck yeah it is, cheaper to replace and doesn't scratch anywhere near as easily, less likely to crack or bend if dropped. Thinkpad quality plastic is preferable obviously but most plastic is far superior to an aluminium unibody. They do feel nice, though. Just not worth it. Also HP Specter is new most aesthetic laptop.

>> No.63362302

Stainless steel is way too heavy, the MacBook would weigh 6 pounds if it wasn't aluminum (which is why planes fly).

>> No.63362308


I agree they feel nice, they're just not worth the cost. Well manufactured but badly engineered I'd say, too many issues with heat.

>> No.63362320

There are number of industrial plastics with tensile strenght, hardness and more rigid than aluminium.

>> No.63362353

Reminder to report the mactoddler shill.


>> No.63362363

Stainless steel is stronger so it can be thinner, accounting for properties you would get like double the mass of the thin sheet-metal body which is insignificant in relation to the mass of other guts.
The real reason for aluminium is because its cheap to work with.

>> No.63362366

This thread is about looks. Of course if you drop your laptop, it’s going to look like shit.

All software and computer hardware looks like shit.

Only "art"-deco postmodernist fags see any beauty in that utilitarian looking trash. Even the wallpaper is digitally enhanced as a brutal affront to natural beauty.

Not my fault people act stupid. I don’t pretend Apple is better. I just use some of their products. What’s the problem anon? Use whatever you want. It’s your choice. Do you want everyone to use what you use?

Yeah right, nobody wants to fuck up, the thing is you eventually will. I will drop my laptop eventually and when that happens i dont want it to bend

I had an ipod touch 3g once.
It had a shiny back that got literally scratched with the dust on the table.
And i'm not even talking some sandstone dust or metal shavings or dropping it on the rock or something, literal household dust fucking mangled it.
And uploading music with special software to it was a nightmare, fucking awful experience.

>> No.63362624

Where many see high cost, I see high resale value.

I bought a 2012 MacBook Pro for $1500, and I sold it for $990 this year.

That's the same net as sinking $600 into a laptop with $0 resale.
