My reaction any time I have to use an Apple product.

    Given that they have excellent build quality, normally pretty good specs on the Pro models and the ability to run Wndows, Mac or Linux I'm surprised anyone would say that.

    I guess you think they're overpriced.

    @drRoss yes, they are. Paid 2500€ for mine and I DON'T EVEN HAVE A GPU. This is fucking robbery. The beast is quite slow and unresponsive overall when you're busying it a bit, clearly not worth that price.

    I need this sticker now

    @drRoss The build quality is only excellent if you don't look beyond the aluminum body. In the span of a year, I've seen a dead SATA cable, a dying video cable, and a touchpad which mysteriously stopped working on friends' and co-workers' Macbooks. Considering you're not allowed to fix these subpar components if you wanted to, yes, the devices are far overpriced.

    I also hate the UX.

    @jlave215 I've had my MBP for almost 6 years now and *touch wood* it has never missed a beat running Windows 7.

    I've upgraded the RAM and changed to an SSD now, it's probably quicker than it was new.

    I have heard that they aren't as well made nowadays.

    @DLMousey I don't get your statement. They can take a few good knocks, but they'll break if abused? Uh...

    Anyway I fail to see how internal ribbon cables would crap out from any sort of external movement. Especially since in the case of the SATA I knew that my girlfriend's laptop was treated very well. Just inferior Chinese parts that cost more because they have an Apple™ on the front.
