>> No.74588294

Fashion statement mostly. And brainlets that fell for the apple superiority meme. Truth is, Macbooks are some of the most poorly designed pieces of shit on the market. You could buy a more powerful and better designed Dell, for example, for a fraction of the cost. There were several models of macbook that had severe design flaws such as a fan that blows hot air directly onto the glue holding the shitstain together, motherboards that fry the CPU if there is one malfunction anywhere in the circuitry, chips that constantly fail, you name it. Theres literally no reason to own a macbook unless you're a troglodyte with no ability to think for yourself, which most people are to be fair.

because other laptops still suck. They either are bulkier or have worse battery management. Also windows just isnt smooth or works well and normies cant be bothered with linux. The only thing that changed at universities in the last few years is that some are using Surface Pros and laptops, but other than that not much else. If anything there are more iPads now too.

Is there anything more patrician than owning AAPL? My portfolio is 90% AAPL and has earned me $5000 in value over the last year and another $5000 in dividends. After I built my $3000 monster PC in 2015 using iCuck donations I still haven't run into a single reason or need to upgrade it much less replace it.

iCucks are just giving me their hard earned burgerbucks hand over fist for chink junk mass produced by the lowest bidder for the "privilege" of having a fruit logo on their fragile poorly made toys that have a lifespan of 2 years tops. With all the money they've generously donated to me, I can build a monster quad CPU quad GPU system every year if I felt like it.

This is what it's like to cuck or dominate someone isn't it? I can call iCucks drones, retards, sheep, NPCs, whatever, and these niggercattle will continue to lick my feet and pay tribute to me. Feels good being a true patrician owning the only good fruit product, their stock.

It makes sense for cs students, because a lot of them would probably want to work for apple and the hiring managers at apple aren't going to hire anyone without OSX experience. This requirement is basically non-existent anywhere for windows, while at the same time using a mac isn't going to stop you from getting a job elsewhere. So simply put, using a mac makes it easier to get a job.

Din't use one for undergrad but got one for medical school.

Maybe not the absolute best in each area, but the combination of trackpad, screen, speakers, keyboard (on the new 16) and build quality just can't be beat. Then consider it works great with iphjones and is extremely reliable and it's no surprise.

But most of all, if you're going to medical school you can afford one, and like someone mentioned earlier most people would buy one if it wasn't for the price.

Mostly just for social status. But beyond that, Apple pruducts are generally pretty good. Their problem has always been value. Forking over 2-3k for a laptop is asking a lot.

The terminal which works plus decent battery life. Also, some people(not me) need photoshop for work.
Also, I have a feeling that third-party developers give a shit about UI apps, and it's more than can I say about Linux.
Windows just plain sucks when it comes to anything nix shell-related.
Actually I see an opportunity for the MS - make a decent Linux support in Windows(and I know about Ubuntu Linux package - it blows) - and I will switch.
In case of emergency, I can always sell my MacBook and go back to Lenovo v580c with the Ubuntu and xmonad.
>Why the fuck should I mostly care about the touchpad?
Because it's strictly better when it comes to work. It shortens the travel time between the keyboard and the mouse cursor controller.
The only reason why I yet to buy a touchpad for my Windows desktop is that I only use it for gaming.

no it isn't, which is why everyone who can ACTUALLY AFFORD macbooks buy macbooks.
