So the dilemma is do I go with Windows and deal with the never ending updates and annoyingly long waiting time for the updates to install as well as worrying about the many viruses, malware, adware, trojans, and conflicting software and hardware issues that enviably always seem to affect a Windows machine ....or do I just buy an iMac 27 inch (not the pro model) and plug it in so I can start using it immediately. I have used both Mac and Windows for years with only one Apple computer having a minor hardware issue and that was in an Apple G5 from 2006. Since then I have had a number of PCs and Macs. In my experience the PCs have all failed over time in one way or another and have become unusable over shorter periods of time than any of the Mac computers I have owned so far. The only thing I have not tried yet is creating a custom PC which would add up to a much more powerful computer than anything Apple has created so far, but I would still have to deal with using Windows OS which I absolutely hate. It is a difficult choice, because while it is great to be able to create a custom machine with hardware that you can replace parts for, it is equally great to be able to use Apples software that I love. The last choice is to just build a Hackintosh which would be O.K., but it is difficult to do and it never seems to be as stable as using a real Mac. There seems to be no really good solution to this problem. Any computer you choose seems to be a compromise.

+RanByUTubeMoney I don't disagree with the fact that a PC has parts that can be replaced by the user, however in my experience as I have mentioned in my post I have not had any Mac's except one where the hardware has ever failed on me. I can not say the same for the PC's running Windows that I have owned. I have 2 Mac G5s from 2006 and a G4 from 2003 that still run perfectly fine. I use one of the G5s for music editing and it works great. So in my opinion I still feel it's better to have hardware made by a company that has been so far better than anything I have owned by HP, or Dell. I really do not want to deal with having to custom make a computer just to come close to the build quality I have experienced with any Apple product I have owned so far. I would always be upgrading my computer to a newer model anyway in 5 to 6 years. I just hate having to deal with Windows that is the bottom line. By the way I don't have to bring my computer to a genius bar to get it fixed I have been able to fix hardware and software issues on my own for most of the few problems I have ever experienced. As far as being a hipster, nope that's not me, but I am not a crazed PC gamer either. I like to use my computer to make money with it, not to play games on. I see no point to paying 3 to 4 thousand dollars on a Windows computer just to use it to play a stupid game on.

The difference with the "PC" is you can user service the PC to fix whatever hardware failure you might have for relatively cheap (depending on the issue also maybe warranty if it applies). Does apple make a good, fast, "mostly" bug free hardware and software that works great for content creation and making hipsters happy? Yes, i cant argue that mac OS is buttery smooth, but does it justify their overpriced products? No, does it justify that you have to take it to a genius bar to have them make "repairs" that are way too expensive and often wrong to make you just buy something newer? Hell no. (and that even if theres a genius bar near you) I just dont think sacrificing expense, up-gradable parts, being able to service your own device, and generally having more open software to do whatever you want on is a trade off to buying something that does work out of the box and is efficient but not having any of the pros of getting a PC

The staingate part I had to "educate" their tech people that it is officially repairable by apple if it de-laminates. To sad.

The following is my opinion only.  I am not an IT professional, nor a paid spokes person.apple fell out of favor with me back around the iPhone 4 back in 2010..I haven't touched one of their products since.  I strongly dissuade my friends and colleagues from purchasing or supporting apple in any way.  I will DEFINATELY be pointing those blindly brand loyal people to this video..  Even though I know in advance they will close their minds to the pure logic presented here in favor of the unearned and unwarranted loyalty to apple.

Well if you think about it, apple just wants more money. The new iPad Pro doesn’t have a headphone jack. So you either have to get the air pods or get a dongle. And the charging cable doesn’t have a USB on the end so you have to get a different cable to be able connect to your computer. Everything costs money. They are greedy. Which is crazy because there products are already too expensive for most people.
