I've owned macs. I had great experiences with Macbook Pro's for work related tasks. They held up wonderfully and were pleasant to use. This was like the 2010-2011 generation Macbooks. Once my Mac finally broke a few years ago (I got around 5 years of medium use out of a Pro), I built a desktop and never looked back. Something changed with Apple, and I am no longer willing to support them in any way.

It is sad how there are people today who still believe that Apple is innovative. They will be pissed to find out that Apple has 3rd party companies manufacture their hardware. And that their MacBook or iMac is just a cheaply made overpriced PC with an Apple logo running Mac OS. With almost no warranty support.

The whole concept of "Customer is King" is not only non existent with Apple, but a total insult. Apple under Cook sees themselves as The King, and customers are merely slaves and beggars subjected under their increasing tyranny. As long as Apple continue to grow, it only proves the sheeple mentality of humanity. Customers don’t expect you to be perfect. They DO expect you to fix things when they go wrong. – Donald Porter

I worked for a company that was an ASP and we literally went out of business because of Apple. We were a string of Verizon stores and during the hurricane in Texas, hundreds of our repairs got “lost.” After we further invested everything, we learned that most of them were never even shipped from Apples repair center. After months and months of going back and forth with Apple, our company had to come out of pocket and replace all of the customers devices. We’re talking iPhones, iPads, beats, iMacs, MacBooks, etc... This hit us pretty bad and we decided to terminate our business with Apple, but the hit forced out company to sell several months later, and it put a lot of people out of jobs. 47 stores gone over night.

FUCK APPLE! What is the appeal? I get why people love it so damn much. The term "Cloud" in reference to "cloud computing" or "cloud storage" was created by people concerned more with job security than education, I feel Apple only perpetuates that ignorance and does whatever they can to create a generation of completely oblivious and incompetent tech users. About 0.2% of the Apple owners I know actually know anything about technology and they use it for coding because the company they work for uses them so they didn't have much of a choice, which I can completely understand. Those that have the choice, use Linux if they can and Windows when they cannot use linux because of their job or the software they are running is Windows anyway and it is just easier to run a Windows PC than any emulator/virtual machine. The Apple ecosystem just doesn't compute to me, why do people buy into that kind of unethical behavior from a company that supplies you witht the stuff you rely on??? It just doesn't make sense to me. User friendly? I recommend my grandparents have it...anyone baby boomer generation to now....should REALLY learn about computers.

They don't work on me, but I do know if I ever had to, and I was in the right and entitled to said repair, they'd do it, if for no other reason than to make me shut up and go away!

if apple could be compared to another company its activision, activision will make a game that sucks and has micro transactions for days and will make it centered around whatever is making the most money then sell it as the best thing ever and will destroy anything else out there and you should buy, when all they want is money, yet they get no blame, exactly like apple they make the worst PCs iv ever layed eyes on, i onced walked into best buy and my mom said that the bright lights are hurting her eyes because it was dark outside and the apple area of the store was close so thats great and i replied the only thing that hurts my eyes is that logo and the employee there agreed because he knew that apple doesn't care about the people who buy there products just that they do and if you lick up anne frank imac girl she has like 5 of them as long as people do that then they wont care about the products they make just the money, id love to see apple fall because they cant innovate anymore

Get with the program - Apple products are blatantly overpriced so the same applies for Apple repairs and spare parts. Did you think you could get one over them by buying parts for close to market value and a reasonable repair cost? Suuure. Do yourself a favor and just stop supporting Apple products if you don't agree with its "illegal" practices because they've been getting their way for years

It's actually absolutely insane to see how tech giants are able to pull the wool over policy makers' eyes. Right to repair? What the serious F? If I own something, then the manufacturer should have no say in what I do to it, and they should be selling the parts to avoid monopoly access. It's not rocket science.
