Don't buy a mac, here's why
A Mac might sound like a good idea, but here's the real deal. I bought my mac with the accessories that I needed for a total of $2700. A 15 inch, macbook pro, i5 2.53 GHz, about 11 months ago. Since then, I have had so many problems with it that Apple had to change the Hard Drive, and the logic board already. Now, the logic board is failing again, that's a 3rd repair on a computer less then 1 year old. The issue isn't that Apple is not servicing the machine, but rather that this mac needed so much service. Apple has been pushing and pulling me back and forth with many appointment to the genius bar where they check for the problem, and MYSTERIOUSLY NOT FIND IT! Well, I decided to record the Problem on my phone and upload so that everyone else can see. My Macbook pro's screen suddenly shuts off and the computer becomes unresponsive and I have to restart it manually. iPhoto, Aperture (which are photography and photo management programs) stop launching, and many many more things just lag. So, when you think about buying a Mac, know that you are paying up the A$$ for it, and you will be getting the runarounds from Apple as long as you own that computer. Get smart, get a PC. for 700$ you'll get a pc with the same specs as a $2000 mac. Cheers!
