>why hated
because it's expensive locked down. I completely understand the hate, and I love my Mac. In a few years my machine will be outdated and I can't upgrade it. I'll either have to get a new Mac or buy a used Thinkpad or something off of eBay.

But - I absolutely love Macs, for what they are they're amazing, there's a learning curve if you've never used one before but the battery life is incomparable, we're talking 13-16 hours of use.

The aluminium is certainly not flimsy, I wouldn't dare to drop it and will probably cry my eyes out if I do, but its super strong.

then Touch Bar is fantastic because it's adaptable, you can be watching a youtube video and have a play, pause, and scroll bar. Or if you want predictive text, or to change tabs on the fly - it's there, its an option. and yes, you can press emojis as well.

It's different, it's unique, and it's not a battery hog.

Not the 2019 models, just because they don't break as much.
The keys have little to no travel but I don't mind it very much. Only problem is how loud the keyboard is. CLICKCLACKCLICKCLACKCLICKCLACK
Not a good idea to bring one of those to a library. Otherwise, it's actually pretty comfy once you learn to stop slamming your fingers on the keys in an attempt to get them to go down further than they'll actually go.

>This is why I hate using my Chromebook. I hate the fact that there are no left and right mouse buttons.
One of the best things Macs have contributed to computing is a usable trackpad. All trackpads suck but at least you're seeing multitouch and larger areas across the board. Dedicated buttons are pointless unless below the spacebar for a trackpoint. Otherwise they just reduce the range of the track pad and break. Bottom left/right corners or 1-2 finger tap or click is far better.

That touch bar is the only good thing on Macbooks, and that doesn't have to be the only reason to buy one, and spend that amount of money if there are Elitebooks from HP, Latitud or Presission from Dell, even those beloved Thinkpads. How about upgrade your laptop components once in a while? Or simply fix our laptops by ourselves. If you can afford a Mac it's ok, but the price doesn't make it a better machine.

>has all the nice proprietary software that people actually use

Disagree. Quite a bit of Apple software aren't used (Garage Band rings a bell in this regards) and if anything many tend to move towards using multi-platform software such as VLC and Adobe suites.

In the case of VLC (and my preference of Audacity for Vinyl LP ripping) many of these software are open source but multi-platform tends to hold the key for many typical uses (and if said software is actually useful, etc).

>decent materials

Could be seen as a catch 22 but my opinion is potentially good set of materials used in a shit form factor and proportion.

I find that Apple's thinness over functionality is really hurting their performance factors with the Macs (the usual thermal protections being triggered resulting in reduced performance for CPU, GPU or both) and worst of all many complain these Macs (since 2016) are overheating due to how hot they are to touch but many such Macs are actually performing in their normal thermal operating ranges (thinner main bodies means operational heat is more likely to be physically felt by the operator, not an issue for 2015 models and before but not to say those models were entirely perfect).

Full double barrel of shit materials will always land on that shit keyboard design. Seriously fuck that keyboard they cut too many corners on that (if utilised properly it could have worked with far fewer issues but they cut corners too far, compare the external butterfly keyboards with the laptop keyboards and you would work out where I am going with this, but the external keyboards weren't entirely perfect though, not as bad as laptop keyboards though).

Lastly Aluminium is a weak material for impacts/ toughness but not an terrible material to use for a laptop body if designed correctly.

>> No.72408058

>very stable, difficult to break

Not entirely true. Incorrect shutdown (performing an Soft SMC reset instead of Shutdown from Menu Bar) can cause data corruption and so can new macOS releases if it is problematic due to early version issues (upgrade rather than standard OS updates).
Only downside to this argument is many different operating systems (Windows, Linux, etc) can share this property if set up and used properly (not all versions or distros apply) so this stability factor isn't Mac exclusive.

>more secure than windows

Almost anything is more secure than Windows but due to rising use in Macs these computers are no longer immune to viruses or App Store abuses as they once was.
Put simply Macs can get viruses and in many regards many Linux distros (not all) win over Mac in this area.

All crap put aside any computer's biggest weakness almost often lies with the operator rather than the operating system itself (somewhat universal overall).

>doesn't make you look like a weirdo or a poorfag if you use it on public

Grey area really. Older generations will see a Mac as a posh/ higher class design to use, but current and young gen are too busy looking at their mobile phones to care about the laptop you are using.
