The trick is to never own an Apple device in the first place. I never will. The amount of money my wife has spent on Apple is astounding, and like the video says, she keeps going back to the well.
Apple told her that her Mac Book Pro was non repairable. She found some one to fix it for less than 1/4 the cost of their suggestion.
I agree. I find Windows 10 to be painfully stupid. I have a slightly older Macbook. It has two GPU's, and one is bad, requires logic board replacement... I probably won't do it (it still runs daily stuff fine, and yes this problem is 100% common, and their "mistake"). The OS doesn't drive me crazy like Win10. But I also have a Thinkpad I run Linux on, and it's the fastest, faster than a brand new computer relatively for day to day stuff. And linux is easier to use than either OS. The problem is compatibility. It's getting better but there's a few things still. If all you do is internet, and a little office work, Linux is perfect.The most difficult thing I've had to do was install some drivers for a Brothers printer, but there were lots of guides on the net. It's not like the past, either, where Linux required you to be techy. It has a download center for example, and all the drivers are installed on their own.
Anyways, it's funny because I've been wanting to go more Apple, just for the fact that it isn't Win10. I have an iPhone and like it, actually. (it also isn't one of the "bendgate" earlier models)
I switched from Windows to Apple about eight years ago (Windows at work until I retired). My main reason for switching was Apple's OS10 - a huge step up - especially r.e. security and maintenance, I think largely due to OS10's closed architecture and minority market share (smaller target). The few tech glitches I had with my 15" laptop were promptly repaired by my independent tech at nominal cost. This machine lasted seven years before I replaced it with a 2018 13" model, so we'll see. To date, switching has been a great decision for me.
I've used Apple products for 20+ years now. I can't stand the thought of using Windows or Android.
My new (few months old) MacBook fell, and got a small dent on the display. It was ugly, but it wasn't affecting the performance of the display much.
Still, I took it to Apple. I knew that, if they were to replace the whole display, it'd cost me $99 (as 1 out of 3 incidents I'm allowed to have). In 5 days, got my Mac back, screen replaced, and $0 bill. Thank you, Apple.
Ultimately its what you used too. I am Window/Android for life and when I get on anything Apple, to me its the stupidest $hit I have ever used. But in time if I switched, I probably would say the same about Windows.
Like I said before there is a line down the middle of our home and the wife and I just talk to each other from our perspective side.
