My wife has had her macbook pro for almost 3 years now. Battery still holds a great charge- she charges it every day. It outlast my work laptop x2 still. I have had 3 work laptops in the same three years and have had countless failures. (motherboard failures, hard drive failures, and one broken screen). I had a dell xps 17'' laptop(personal). It too had 2 motherboard failures, one bad memory stick, and an overheating problem. |
I got tired of my crap breaking from dell and HP and bought an iMac. I typically dislike apple because I was like you guys. But honestly, I have never been more happy with my computing experience with their products. Overpriced, absolutely. But once you make the investment I look at it like this. I can sell my apple equipment at 65-75% original purchase price after a year and a half and get the latest and greatest. And thats what I do.
Try buying a mid to higher end dell or HP and try doing that even 3 months after you get it. YOu will be lucky to get 30% resale value.
