So I started with Macbook Pro 13'' 2015 as my first step into the Apple ecosystem. This one suffered from staingate, however it was still within 2 years eu warranty period so I got the screen replaced. Then few months in after warranty was over the touchpad and the keyboard suddenly stopped working. Resetting SMC & PRAM worked after performing them for like 20 times in a row. Then after 2 days, touchpad and keyboard were both dead again. I also got Macbook 12'' 2016 as my non working travel device. Very nice laptop, probably still the best looking to this day. But of couse, it had butterflies... I really cherish my devices, always use microfiber cloth when closing the lid so the keyboard doesn't touch the screen. Never eat around them. They are literally brand new in my care even after years of using, never had a single scratch. Yet certain keys on this macbook got stuck or started printing double letters. So I got rid of it. Macbook Pro 13'' had to be replaced due to its HW defect so third time's a charm, I went for Macbook Pro 15'' 2017. Few months in, the "j" key started double printing. Compressed air didn't help macbook 12'' and didn't help here either. So I bashed the key in. Whatever was underneath got crushed and the key started working properly again. Don't have much confidence in the keyboard though. I discovered MacRumors and read about flexgate and honestly, with my current experience with Macboook pros I am 100% sure I will get that too. I also had iPad Pro 10,5'' and that one developed a bright spot above home button. I am currently waiting for replacement. The only Apple device that didn't develop any HW defects over time is my iPhone 6s which I am holding on to, scared to upgrade and honestly not even wanting to upgrade as the Android phones are now miles ahead. Just look at the P30 Pro. If it wasn't for Apple ecosystem, I wouldn't hesitate for a second. To conclude, 4 out of 5 Apple devices developed some sort of HW defect. My friends also use Apple products (far longer than I) and even they started to complain about declining quality. Also went through staingates, malfunctioning keyboards and what not. I want to stay on Mac OS. The Win 10 experience is just atrocious. It's a mess where nothing works properly. It has 7 UI themes used randomly acrossed the system. I will never switch to that monstrosity. I used Linux (Ubuntu, Mint) prior Mac OS and it was servicable but more of a DIY project at times. Mac OS, iOS and the whole Apple ecosystem is still light years ahead of competition. The problem is Apple HW is an overpriced crap. I suppose it wasn't always the case. But now they are losing on all fronts except the tablet one. I would like to ask you this: What are the safest (HW defects wise) devices for each category (computer/tablet/phone) to use? Is maybe Mac mini something I could replace my macbook with and it would work for at least 5 years? Should I go with iPad Air 2019 instead of iPad Pro 2018 due to its "bendgate". I am mostly interested in the ideal Macbook Pro replacement but if you own other devices please share your experience with me.
