In the past Apple changed from “Does more, costs less” to “Does less, costs more”.

When did it ever cost less?


People tend to misunderstand the Apple product design philosophy. I used to sell computers. Basically, we got WAY more returns/warranty claims/tech support issues with Windows, but the upfront cost was way cheaper. Choosing between Windows and Mac, for the general consumer, is about whether or not you want to front load the cost or deal with frequent issues later on. At that job, we used estimations that PCs last between 2 and 5 years, while a Mac lasts between 4 and 7 years. Obviously, this doesn’t include custom PC builders. They are their own market and outside of this. A lot of computer manufacturers make a cheap as possible product, because that’s what their market wants. Cheap, junky, shitty. Not all, but a lot. You can’t buy a decent computer (premade) for under 700 dollars. Even then, you’d be better off splurging and getting a 1k+ computer. Edit: before the anecdotal “I bought this X computer and had it for 25 years!”; this is averaged information, so obviously there will be outliers in both realms (junky macs and reliable PCs)


“Do it our way or else”


Been using Apple since the beginning. ​ Today’s fanbois/gurlz do not want to hear this, but it is fairly accurate.
