Questions for the hard core Apple user base. I need to know, I own a couple of Macs, ranging from an old Pismo laptop to a brand new iMac, which I do enjoy very much. Though I am a very heavy Windows/Workstation user. This is not out for me to bash Apple, I perfer my Windows PCs much more than my Macs I have to admit. But I still like my new iMac, and I love my old G5 tower, however. The userbase is sometimes... well. Questions I want to know. Im not saying all Apple guys are like and think this, but Ive heard all of this more than once, and would like some mature answers. Questions: 1: Why do so many people have an personal attachment to Apple? Ive never seen the fans of any other brand get so personally offended when you put down an Apple Product. 2: Why do some consider Apple to be a Luxury Brand ? I dont understand this. None of their computers cost any more than a mid range PC laptop, ( higher end on the Mac Book Pro side ). Im not saying they are bad computers. They are great. But I dont see them as Apple being Ferrari, and Dell being Ford. I dont buy that. 3: Does it ever bother you that Apple, for the most part. Rapes you on hardware support? The Mac Pro was/is the most limited Workstation for sale Today. Which is the primary reason I refused to buy it. 4: Do you consider Apple to be a company that tells you what you want rather than listening to customer feed back ? A lack of a Mid Tower Mac and no New Mac Pro are perfect examples of that. 5: Macs last much longer than PCs . Now, Ive heard this one way to many times before. And I think its a crock of ****. Am I wrong? 6: Windows is full of bugs, unsecure, unreliable. OSX is 10 million times better :. Ive heard this before, OSX is a good OS, and I like. But Windows XP and 7 are very stable, very fast, secure and all that fun stuff. Ive worked in this business a long time, long enough to say that newer versions of Windows are great, as is OSX. I dont buy the whole BSOD Windoze lolz crash thing I Hear from so many Mac guys. Do you agree with the whole Windows sucks at everything ? 7: Do you think Apple sometimes Makes Crap? Some users say they never have. Do you think so? I think they have, G4 Cube, original G4 powerbooks, liquid cooled G5 towers, and the G5 iMac, what a bunch of crap all those systems were. 8: Do you think Apple Products are overpriced? For me its yes and know, the computers are very overpriced. The iPad and iPhone. Not so much. 9: Do you think Apple is a company that cares more about profit, or has an actual passion to push forward? I would argue all companies care about profit and they want to push forward, because pushing forward = money. 10: Do you think OSX going in the direction of iOS is a step in the wrong direction? 11: Do you think Mac computers have gone downhill since the days of PowerPC? 12: Do you think Apple is abandoning its most loyal customers, in the way that they have not updated the Mac Pro, and not offered a Mid Tower?
