Lol because like any sane person I offload any intensive computations onto a server. If you’re running intense computations on a laptop you are fucking retarded. MacOS gives me the smoothest experience and best interface for accessing other devices. I don’t care about hardware very much because I don’t push my hardware. Most people don’t push their hardware (because doing anything intense on a laptop is for retards) so they buy the laptop with the best interface and smoothest OS.

I have two macbooks (I got them both for free from work). I had never owned an apple product before that point, and I used to be vehemently anti-apple.

Honestly, they are kind of amazing. I don't know if I'd ever pay for them, but they are easily the nicest computers I have ever owned. I'm not exaggerating when I say I have never had any sort (software) related issus with the computer. Though its a little cliche, they actually do "just work", which is great, because it means I can actually focus on doing work instead of trying to fix my computers.

Anyone who says Macbooks are underpowered are full of shit, and probably have never used one. I literally always have at least two VMs running on it, as well as slack and my IDE, and I have never run into a performance hiccup. The screen is nice and crisp. The battery life + functional trackpad means I can actually pick it up and move it and use it in other places other than my desk as well, which is very convenient.

>inb4 calling me a mactoddler or something
For anyone here who is actually on the fence and wondering if they should buy a mac, I really do recommend it. It's at least a lesson in learning that in aggregate /g/ is a bunch of angry children. There is reason why literally every single company that can afford buys macbooks for their engineers.

The only reason you should own a Mac is if you work on a advertising agency or on a design related job, all the Adobe programs run great on it. I don't own one personally but since I work as a graphic designer on a legit big company I was forced to work on them. Before that I used to be against Macs because of their price but after three years of working on them I can say I would NEVER return to PC for other reason than 3D modeling/rendering and vidya.

you're making the assumption that the newer macs are just as reliable as the older macs were. Pro Tip: they're not.

I'll bet anything that an old plastic ppc could outlive any of the newer macbooks coming out, even if less practical than an ancient memepad these days.

Spending hours of your life debating an os / hw specs.

Daily reminder that we sent men on the moon with asm and cpus slower than the microwave you use to reheat your filthy ramen.
Stop wasting time and get shit done.

idiot buys new hardware way too frequently. my thinkpad is 6 years old and I'm not planning on replacing it any time soon.

>> No.65136885

They hate "shit" but they cant stop talking about it.

>> No.65136919

Daily reminder:
Thinkpads are also overpriced.
They are way overpriced for the things they offer.
>worse battery life
>eye cancer causing screens
