You build a cult following around a piece of hardware that is not particularly exceptional in any way.
It's some useless status symbol that doesn't fucking matter or make any difference.
So, why keep shilling out for this piece of shit?
>god tier keyboad
>got tier buolt quality (dat magnesium rollcage)
>god tier linux support
>modular so you can replace anything and upgrade several parts, including cpu on a lot of models
>great battery life on the x series
>overheats enough to use as a stove top
>throw it out and buy a new one if you want to upgrade
>made out of easily bendable aluminum
>priced at double what it's worth
MacBooks will always bee the best laptop available and any one who denies this is just jealous.
>B-b-but I want something ugly b-because who wants something that looks n-nice?
Get over it. Either save up or just say "yeah Macbooks are nice but not worth three times the price to me".
>nu-uh der shit for homosex xD
Thinkpads are alright for $400-600 though.
MacBooks? No. MBPr's? Yes.
Best except for dollar value. This is the secret of the TP.
Also best except for being able to use a dock.
Unless you buy some shitty 3rd party thunderbolt "dock" that's really more of a port hub than a dock, or you pay out the nose for something nice.
Also best except for number of USB ports.
Because I kinda use those.
>mfw my $250 X220 does all these things
- ex MacFag
>implying i bought it as a Status Symbol
I bought it Because it's cheap, has the Best durability and is pretty much the Best piece of Hardware you can get (if you arent into gaming of course)
I May seem to use it that way Because everytime a Laptop of a collegue brakes down or something doesnt have Linux Support i say
>that wouldnt have happened if you had bought a superior thinkpad
But Thats just for the lulz
>>that wouldnt have happened if you had bought a superior thinkpad
>Want docking station for seamless transition between mobile/home workflow
>Belkin ThunderBolt dock $300
>Decide I can get a refurbished laptop AND dock for less
>Decide against MemePad
>Nab a Dell 6220
>Takes forever to POST
>Keyboard randomly stops working
>Fight with it for a week, changing BIOS versions
>Decide it's a faulty mobo and just deal
>Works better, but I need Office for school
>Won't POST anymore
>Everything works perfectly
Some of us learn the hard way.
