Here's why I'm officially quitting Apple Laptops.

  • After many years using MacBook variants I've made the switch to Windows. I've used every version of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air that have been released. My current laptop of choice is the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon / Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme.Turns out switching from Mac to Windows isn't as painful as I expected.

    ive always found lenovo keyboards layout kinda retarded, they feel okey, but thats the thing, theres a brand for everyone, im sure a lot of people cant get away from that macbook keyboard, same as i absolutely love HP keyboards

    so yeah reliability being subpar is the only thing you should take away from this, if confirmed to be fixed, just get your fruity laptop and be happy, its all very subjective

    It was $780 to fix a bloody keyboard - thank fuck I was still under warranty.

    Within the first month the keys had started jamming up - $2000+ for something that wears out in a month of moderate use...
    If your car tyres of your new car wore out after a month - you'd be fuming.

    Now imagine if the tyres were 'considered' to be half the value of the whole car - and there you have Apple products.
    I understand the economy of Apple products - Few people actually buy the newest products - so to benefit from second hand apple products - they just ramp up the repair costs - but it really shafts first-hand-owners when you design a product very poorly.

    Either do a re-call and completely right the wrong - or never see my money again.
    My original Macbook air had a better keyboard than this piece of junk.

      And the funniest thing;

      I was cleaning the hinge joint with a Q-tip and some cleaner - I wasn't pressing hard and the screen actually broke at the Bezel.
      Now I have a hole in my $2000 laptop from a Q-tip.
      First time I had done it on this PC.
      Did it once a week for 4 years on my MB AiR.

      Apple "Genius" said I might as well buy a new laptop - considering it'd cost more to repair this one.
      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - GTFO.

    I have both a Mac Pro that I bought in 2014 for college and I love it and still works great on the other hand the company I work for gave me a think pad for work just a basic company laptop! Now if I were to buy a new laptop for myself I would probably go for a think pad carbon x1 an I know based on cost/benefits there is no comparison.

    Thinkpad: productivity, MacBook: creation. It's that simple.
    The "weird" button placement you mentioned obey this principle, since it's there to help you easily transition from typing to moving your mouse, which you do not do with the track pad but with that big red button on the middle of your keyboard; again for productivity purposes.

    Gotta admit they have been trying hard for years and got to a point that hardware is way better than the past, other brands have achieved thickness battery and power (thx intel), plus windows have come way better, BUT and there’s a huge BUT, u sure as hell spent HOURS getting rid of games ads and stupid default programs that comes with win 10 (even pro) can’t stand how they call win pro a OS full of games and crappy soft that can’t be deleted. You gotta be a company and pay big bucks for a real enterprise win10 vers.
    Sys admin here so I was glad about improvements with w7 and also with w10 but can’t stand so much crap and don’t get me started with “new releases” and pushing out of support Older versions... my god this was long. Fuck w10 games and shit still using MacBook as personal device but gotta put their shit together with keyboard and overheating issues like.... YESTERDAY

Windows have switch their game up, but still can't get with the freezing, you still can't do a lot of things at the same time without something freezing, it's better, but not all the way great yet, (in my opinion)

    Once upon a time, the MBP had a beautiful, solid, metal keyboard, back when Apple cared about the quality of their products. But now, they are *crap!* I witnessed one of my classmates, who purchased a brand new MBP the day before for $2400 Canadian brake a key; he wasn't being abusive, just typing normally. So he brought it back to its place of purchase, and exchanged it for an MSI gaming laptop, that had *twice* the power at *half* the cost! Furthermore, when his infant son managed to push it off the kitchen table, and onto the floor, it managed to survive the crash with full functionality and nary a scratch! A _very_ tough machine indeed!

    I have both and I prefer the MBP. But I agree that apple are starting to have some serious problems with reliability of basic stuff like their keyboards. It's a shame because I used to buy Apple for the longevity. If they lose that & the prices keep going up I'll have to move to PC's for all my work. I think Apple are losing the plot with very iterative releases, little true innovation and an absolutely obsession with the visuals over the function. Also the sheer meanness of making every decision to force users to buy expensive addons to do the most basic shit. I have too many dongles now. It's a waste of space and money.

    Totally agree. I love my X1 Carbon 3rd gen. It is solid, has all the I/O ports you could ever need (including a dedicated dock connector), the battery life is superb and the keyboard is sublime. I only have the 2K screen, but the matt finish makes it very usable under any conditions. Did I mention that most of the machine is modular, so I can actually upgrade the WIFI, BT, etc, or, wow, change the battery when the time cones? Or the fingerprint reader? Or the fact that it runs Windows 10 Pro? Oh, and before you say I am a PC fanboi and don't know jack about Macs, I also have a MacBook pro 2016 and a Mac pro 4,1 8-core within 6 feet of me right now (and yes, they are mine!).
    Additionally, I have to say that the aluminum design of the MBP is just tired and not all that good.... it dents and scratches very easily. Every 3+ year old mac I see looks awful. But I guess Apple want that, it's an opportunity for the loyal base to upgrade, right? I
    Finally I personally totally reject Apples' design philosophy of minimal ports, whether it is an iPhone or a MBP. Every single MBP owner I know carries a little bag of dongles, converters and connectivity devices. Yes the Laptop might be small, but you have to carry a crap-load of junk that is expensive and easy to lose. No. Thank. You.
