iPhone isn’t a Mac, those are desktops and laptops. And if your phone won’t run new apps on the new iOS, it’s a 4S from 2011. Show me any other 6 year old phone receiving updates...

On the Mac/Windows price difference, if you compare any MacBook to a similarly species and bodied windows competitor, the price will be pretty equivalent. Microsoft Surfacebook, Dell XPS series, Lenovo Carbon X1, MacBook Pro, all are around the same price. Sure you can build your own desktop cheaper, but that’s not apples-to-apples.

I personally have the Lenovo for work, and it’s good, not great. Nice screen, but the body flexes, and the Trackpad can’t hold a candle to Apple’s.

To be pedantic, a Mac is a PC.
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Politics without principle. Your bias suits you.

No, no, no!

A Mac is more than a PC - it’s a lifestyle :biggrin:

[icon_lol2.gif] It's funny how so many totally forget/don't know that PC = Personal Computer. But that's mostly pedantry; we all know we're talking Mac vs. Windows, and related hardware.

Personally, I run Windows and occasionally Tails* when necessary.
