The question of choosing a laptop will remain relevant for many years to come. Maybe someday tablets will replace our usual laptops, but, in my opinion, in the next 10 years this is definitely not worth waiting for. Think for yourself. We’ve been getting used to this form factor with a physical keyboard and full operating system for decades. It will be extremely difficult to ditch it in favor of other devices. In fact, when choosing a computer, all users are faced with the question: take a machine on Windows or fork out for a Mac. I decided for myself clearly: only MacBook and nothing else.
More recently, our colleagues from AndroidInsider.ru published material on the topic: Why I don’t see the point in buying a MacBook… After reading, I had exactly the same question: Why does the author not see the point in buying a MacBook? This is the best computer that can happen to you. In any case, it seems to me that this is an obvious fact.
I propose to go through the points clearly, to disassemble each of them and clearly with arguments to unwind the lovers of Android devices to smithereens. It seems to me that they themselves do not understand how harsh this sounds. Just think: Android + Windows. I’ve seen that in my nightmares.
Moving from Windows to Mac
It doesn’t matter if you are switching from Windows to Mac or even buying a computer for the first time in your life – there can be no problems in this regard a priori. But I understand why Windows owners often worry about this topic. They just imagine the same complex system with a bunch of settings and system files, the inability to disable automatic updates that torment them every week, and so on.
And so the user thinks that somewhere there lives a mysterious macOS with a bunch of nuances and problems. I can imagine how difficult it is for the owner of a Windows laptop to switch to another similar system. Calm down, friends, the two operating systems have almost nothing in common, and there are a thousand times fewer problems with macOS.
In fact, macOS is extremely simple and straightforward to use. When I switched to a MacBook myself, the process of getting used to it took no more than an hour. Yes, it took me some time to learn some of the tricks like keyboard shortcuts and the nuances of working with the Finder, but without that everything would be fine. To upgrade to a Mac, you just need to buy a Mac. No more.
Battery in MacBook
The era of bulky laptops is a thing of the past. It is simply impossible to disagree with this. But if Windows machines began to make such a transition two or three years ago, then the MacBook has been thin for a very long time. And if Mac owners always carry their gadgets with them, then it is not accepted to carry the rest of the devices somewhere for an unclear reason to me.
Do many users carry their laptop with them somewhere? Of course not. It’s simple: the autonomy of a good laptop is 8 hours. And half a year after the purchase – and even less. The MacBook has a strong lead in this respect (we take only ultrabooks into account). The MacBook Air on the M1, for example, will be able to run 18 hours of video playback or 15 hours in the browser. Plus, it’s not customary to shut down MacBooks. It’s convenient – closed, gone.
Well, the icing on the cake will be the blue screen of death, constantly popping up updates and errors. As soon as you come to a cafe to sit at work, as soon as it is a mistake. Agree, unpleasant? Here’s another reason to get yourself a laptop from Apple.
The Apple ecosystem is something that I will never give up for anything. A bundle of Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad and MacBook is something. Just imagine, you open the lid of the poppy – it is unlocked, you need to scan documents, you press a couple of buttons – the iPhone camera is activated, you urgently need a second monitor – the iPad can do it. Copy text on your phone and paste on your computer – no problem.
Every day you understand that in front of you are not separate devices, but a single mechanism, where each cog is a phone, tablet, watch or other gadget. You say that this is extortion of money? Yes, but I agree to that. It’s worth it.
Can I play on MacBook
With games, everything is more complicated. Apple computers are not natively based on such tasks. The Mac is primarily a device for work, but games are also there. Earlier, the author of AppleInsider.ru Oleg Svirgstin has already discussed this topic in his article. I have a slightly different view on this matter.
We used to play on the computer very often. It was a whole ritual: sit down after work, discarding all unnecessary things, and completely immerse yourself in the process. Now almost no one is doing this. Most often, we only play with you during breaks at work or school. The gaming industry has only adapted for us.
This is why you won’t find cool projects like The Witcher or Grand Theft Auto in the App Store. People have moved away from this. And, of course, the Apple ecosystem does not imply that the Mac is a gaming device. They have another gadget for entertainment.
As a result, I think that only those who do not have the money to buy a Mac do not. Other reasons are just excuses. What do you think? Be sure to share your opinion in our Telegram-chat or in the comments below. It will be interesting to read.
