Ive been a member here for a little while now. I find it funny (and kinda sad) that every time Apple releases a new MacBook Pro its always the same thing on these forums. You basically get three kinds of threads/people. 1. "PLEASE HELP! Im about to place my order but im not sure which options i should get? Should i get more RAM or the better CPU or both? I know that this question has been asked a million times and i could've used the search button or even google to find the answer, but im lazy. Also I dont know if i should get the chicken sandwich combo or the hamburger combo for lunch. I like when people lease tell me how to spend my money and what to do." 2. "This new MacBook Pro is awesome. Apple has done it again, they are so great. If Apple sold cancer, id buy the stage 4 upgrade. My computer is only 6 months old, but this update is a must have so i put in my order. I did the build to order with all the best parts. It was $10,595, but to me its worth it. i need to get the best specs to post on macrumors and take dick pics. " 3. "What the F, bro! Apple sucks. All i want is a "Pro" computer with 97 gb of ram and uses the new skynet processor. Such bull crap. I hate Apple, but that's all i use. If the next update doesnt have what i want. I'm never buying apple again. I mean it this time. I've said it the last 5 updates, but this time i REALLY mean it!" I've also noticed that each type of thread/person is a stage in Macbook Pro ownership. The first type of person is usually a newbie, its their first purchase and they are all excited to buy their first Macbook Pro. Its like when you go out on a first date and you're all nervous and unsure of yourself. The second type of person is usually someone who has used their MacBook pro for a year or so and they just love Apple. This is what you call the honeymoon phase, its like you've been dating for a while and you start thinking "this could be the one! I'm in love!" the third type of person is the person that has owned apple products for years and they are just jaded. Its like the person thats been married for 20 years and the idea of divorcing and dating other people sounds kinda nice, but they're like, "i don't know. I'm old. This person doesn't mind when i fart either. Meh, we'll just stay married."
