Are us non Apple users just idiots? This thing runs circles around a Thinkpad within a couple years of when this was released.

    The form and hardware are what make it the only usable laptop in history. The trackpad and gestures make life easy, swiping so quick across several virtual desktops. I even have a windows VM full screen and I just swipe over to it. And three different browsers full screen and two desktops. And gestures to expose desktop, or show all windows, all the easy keys shortcuts with the CMD being in the perfect spot. On windows keyboard you have to reach further to do shortcuts.

        The trackpad is insane man. If you want to move a folder or a file, you don’t have to select it with a click, you just grab it with one finger and press down a little harder and move it and drop it. A Pc trackpad is ancient tech feeling, the Apple trackpad is more like a tablet. Take three fingers fingers and expand like your zooming out of an image on your phone, and the Mac will slide all your windows open to the side to reveal your desktop. Swipe left or right with 3 fingers and you can slide between desktops. It’s so fast for productivity. I hate Apple but I’m not brand loyal and will use whatever laptop is best and so far only Apple makes them.

            My personal Mac is just for browsing the web and paying bills and running Adobe Lightroom and Final Cut Pro for video. It’s pretty much the same as my PC, just easier to do that stuff from bed. But at my desk Lightroom runs the same on PC and Chrome is Chrome. And for gaming the MacBook even runs Disco Elysium just fine in bed, and a few other Steam games. I want to get a NAS going and have a desktop ready to go but can’t figure out how to do it, then I can edit files from other PC or Mac from a shared drive.

            You can do that on any $300 laptop, why bother buying a MacBook?

            I have medium format cameras and the 200 or so 80mb batches of DNG files bog down Lightroom on any machine. But if I didn’t need to do that I’d still get a MacBook Air just for the trackpad and battery life. Even the MacBook Pro I’ve never heard the fan come on or feel heat while it’s on my lap, the M processors are magic. I’d take a windows laptop if they were in a package like MacBooks, I can work on either OS, I have a Lenovo at my mom’s and hate having to use it due to the tiny trackpad and heat and battery life. I don’t like traveling with a heavy laptop so so I leave the Mac behind.

          The only thing that's actually useful on that list is clicking and dragging, but that's not insane, PC trackpads do that too.

      Ironically you're the one stuck in the past.
      It's 2024. Apple's rivals have trackpads that are just as good and sometimes better now, with all the gestures working on both Windows and Linux (KDE/GNOME).

        More practical question is getting damaged while traveling. You keep your laptop in a bag. You trip, and the backpack falls into a puddle. Does your laptop survive this encounter?

        Alright then go on, buy the laptop that has critical motherboard design flaws each generation, displays that crack from ambient temperature changes or being closed on the smallest food crumb, plastics that break from being wiped clean, tin can chassis that bends permanently if it is dropped once, I could go on.

          If my laptop breaks I can just get a cheap Chromebook for like 40 or less bucks and put linux on it and it would probably perform better than a 15 year old Thinkpad too.

    I don't want to use Mac OS, and I don't want to fuddle around with Asahi. I have a Dell XPS Developer Edition laptop running Ubuntu, and it does everything I need it to do. I also have a desktop running Windows 11 for gaming purposes and *some* productivity applications that don't run on Linux.
