Here's why I'm officially quitting Apple Laptops.

After many years using MacBook variants I've made the switch to Windows. I've used every version of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air that have been released. My current laptop of choice is the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon / Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme.Turns out switching from Mac to Windows isn't as painful as I expected.

    My experience exactly with switching to an X1 Carbon after a decade with Apple and three warranty repairs on a 2017 $2600 MacBook Pro that then died twice out of warranty. I bought a used 4th gen X1 for less than half the cost of fixing the MacBook and use Linux mint most of the time. Much better device and experience than the MacBook at a fraction of the cost.

    Windows 10 is really the best Windows that has ever been. It's a lot more user friendly, it's beautiful to look at, and it's quite responsive. And the hardware has always really had the edge on Apple products, just the vast majority has typically been sub-par, with a few notable stand outs.

    I highly, highly prefer macOs over Windows (and I'm saying this as someone who used Windows for almost 20 years). Too bad Apple messed up their hardware. To my very big regret, I have to agree with this video. My next machine will be running Windows+Linux. I will miss macOs dearly 😢 but I won't buy this faulty Apple hardware. Especially at the prices they are charging, such blatant shortcomings are absolutely unacceptable. Also, the responsible person at Apple who thought it would be a good idea to replace the Escape and Function keys on a Macbook Pro, in favor of the frigging touch bar, should be fired on the spot.

In 1 year 2 times broken (send it back to Lenovo to repair) and also the damm thing runs like a Lada from the 60's, from time to time I have to restart while running programs. Apple has to fix their problems and we can start use Mac again.

I do want you to give us an answer how are you going to solve the big problems with windows, cause the minute you start using windows everything is slower and you need the double time to do your work, and after of some months of use you need to buy a new a laptop . This thing you dont get to have when you are using mac, i have seen it, all my friends are using mac and their laptops are twice faster than mine even that my laptop has better features and it is newer than theirs

    Depends what you want to accomplish.....both machines and OS's are purpose built and targeted to certain use cases. I have been working in enterprise IT for over 25 years I'll tell you the same thing I tell anyone who asks me what they should get...... Business and Gaming use = Windows wins Hands Down! Creative use - Music Creation, Video Editing, and Photo manipulation, Apple wins hands down! The ideal situation would be to have one of each like I do ;) Battlefield 5 on my Acer Predator 15 Final Cut on my Imac Pro 13 X1 Carbon is a business laptop and its great for that use so again, it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For work, they give us Dell Latitude 7490's ..... They are great and light and good for Mail Web Powerpoint etc..... But crap for anything else! YOU KNOW I'M RIGHT LEW!!!! --sam

    Hardware: it sucks that that a simple but annoying flaw is a deal breaker, but if it does't work, it doesn't work. Software: it all depends on what you want the device to do. Like you said, most of what you do resides in the Chrome browser, which means you could even go Linux or Chrome. Yes, Windows is "prettier" than it used to be. But for the video and audio editing I do, Mac has been the best for me for 10+ years. Gamers? Go PC/Xbox. Production? Go iOS/macOS.

    Agree. We dropped $1495.00 for a brand new MacBook Pro in 2013. It worked so-so, it would black-screen a few times and I had to reset it a few times. Then the screen went totally dead 2 month's after the warranty expired. Estimated repair bill to change the Logic Board $495.00. I need not write or say anything more.

    Great review. I am having exactly the same issue. Have Macs since early 90-s and it is in my mind almost impossible to make that switch. I live for two years with keys that don't function well. It differs when it is cold or warm etc. Ridiculous to work like this for such a long time. One month ago I switched my Iphone to a Samsung S9 and that feels weird and takes time to adjust to it. I am thinking to buy a Huawei Matebook Pro. Thoughts?

    @Unbox Therapy, you're one of the biggest names in tech here on VNchannel and you somehow did not know Apple stopped making good keyboards beginning in March 2015 with the 12" MacBook and then in late 2016 drove the nail deeper into the coffin when they put that horrid butterfly keyboard in the MacBook they call "Pro"? The final toll of the death knell came with the 2018 "renewal" of the MacBook Air, which is the model you own. Seriously, I've used and loved Macs since the 128k in 1984 and have never defected to Windows, yet I know that the last great MacBook Pro Apple ever made was the mid-2015 model BECAUSE of the keyboard. Apple is now on its 3rd generation of those wicked butterfly key switches and users are still plagued with problems. If a horrid keyboard was the only problem, perhaps some could live with it, but Apple didn't stop there. Apple gutted the MacBook Pro of its pro features like the SD card slot, MagSafe, LED on charging cable, all USB-A ports (which now in March 2019 are still ubiquitous around the world), removed the extension power cord from being a standard item, and they killed off the glowing Apple logo on the back of the display too. Some Cupertino worshippers (the "Apple always knows more than the consumer" mentality types) try to defend Apple by saying nobody needs USB-A or SD card slots while at the same time forgetting that even the $5000 iMac Pro has both, in addition to USB-C. Even the newly released 2019 iMacs have USB-A and SD card slots, for crying out loud! What Apple has done to its notebook line is inexcusable, and Johnny Ive's extremist minimalism is at the heart of it. Steve Jobs gave too much power to Ive, and Tim Cook is too much of a hands-off CEO to change that. Yet despite all this foolishness from Apple, I would not want to defect to Windows as you have. I prefer MacOS, which is all the more reason some of us are literally in tears over the bad choices Apple has laid upon The Rest of Us -- the real Mac faithful.

    Clarification, please... is this a complete quit or a personal? You showed a minimal setup, showing little that one would expect on the main computer of a VNchannel content creator. So is this a personal machine or a machine used for personal and professional projects, etc? Because if Unbox Therapy is being produced on an Apple product this is a rather disingenuous proclamation. If this is just a personal laptop switch, why did you go with a Windows PC? As you stated the apps you use are minimal, everything else is within the Chrome browser... why didn't you go with a Chromebook?
