I wanted to post an update of me getting a Macbook pro. So why Macbook?
Primarily it’s just the looks, before I was using Linux/Windows PC laptop. Linux for work/programming, Windows for the rest
But it’s a regular PC laptop and all of them have one thing in common – they’re pretty ugly. Cheap plastic etc. For desktops looks don’t matter, you just see huge monitor in front of you and a keyboard, but laptop is something close and personal. Plus cheap plastic gets ugly looks pretty fast and you end up staring at an ugly piece of hardware all the time
Aluminium body looks great and ageless
Cheap Good Looks
The problem with PC laptops – that the good looking ones started to come out just recently. I’d say HP Spectre is one of the first ones that have some kind of a good look on all sides. Even though I find it too glamorous
Basically you have close to no choice of great looking PC laptops. Macbooks have beed around since long time ago. I bought a used of 2012 and it looks better than most of the new PC’s
Which means you can buy great looking laptop super cheap
But They All Same
Before I used to dislike Macbooks and their owners
Don’t you have any sense of uniqueness? You all have identical laptops!
And honestly it still bothers me, I mean how can this be normal, just rediculous to see people having same laptops. Apple should have 30 min different colors and shapes of Macbooks to just give some variety. Stickers help a bit. I’d be more than happy to buy some great looking metal PC laptop, if there was some choice there
There’s a Huawei Matebook, which looks very close to Macbook, but still I HP Spectre is one of the best looking PC laptops currently, not the 360 one, that one is ugly
What’s your take on laptops?
