That's nice having your own in-house Apple Genius but not so good when some Apple Warranty or Apple replacement is needed.

Indeed, but none of my Apple devices are young enough to even be electable for Apple Care.

Most of these devices are elderly, most of them have been repaired by myself.

My youngest Mac is a mid 2012 13" MBP under El Cap.

A litany of complaints for a compny deaf to its loyalists

While were on the subject:

1) Lack of ports
2) Tiny SSDs or big price
3) Loss of Magsafe
4) Not upgradable
5) Poorer quality standards
6) Geniuses?!? One has to beg!
7) Apple Zoos!
I prefer to customise by phone.
8) Restrictive AppleCare
9) Poor customer service
10) No feedback mechanism
11) Bluetooth peripherals

Here some of you may differ. I hate to worry about battery maintenance. I want USB keyboard & mouse/trackpad for the only affordable Mac.

However, the iMac only works for those of us who can work at a desk.

These complaints notwithstanding, Im still using my 2011 17 MBP but Ill be the first in line for the promised 16.5!

I was watching a youtube video showing off the G4 Power Cube. Although it was an unpopular piece of hardware, it still had that classic Apple magic. It's hard to describe, just things like a handle that clicks out. The whole computer coming out and its guts being there. But you can cram it all back into the enclosure. It was different.

Now the argument for Mac vs PC whats the difference is kinda narrowing down.

I'm using a magnetic connector at home with my 2017 MBP. A dongle is plugged into said connector. When I arrive home, I plunk my MBP into it's stand (which is tucked behind my 28" 4K monitor) connect the single magnetic connector in 0.5 seconds, and instantly my system is connected to my large display, and the USB 3.0 stand/dock it is placed on. It is a wicked system and very convenient.
