            I use a standalone magic trackpad all day for work while my MacBook is plugged in to a monitor. For productivity it’s just faster. Mice do not have enough buttons to cover all the haptics and gestures I use, and those apple mice suck.

          Have you never used a trackpad on modern ThinkPads? They're unironically great and on par with ones on MacBooks (and superior in some ways, such as having all three physical buttons) and this is coming from someone who has used both.

            I have an Thinkpad X1 in the other room. The Lenovo trackpad is OK. It needs to be haptic. As for the 3 buttons, I'll live with Apple's multi-finger implementation. It's simply better than Lenovo's.

    Linux is an obsolete 1970s mainframe OS where the UI is an afterthought. The desktop is a fragmented mess currently unable to decide how the most basic things should be done, and currently in a civil war over the windowing system.

        MacOS has 1 (one) DE, which certainly isn't perfect, but it at least offers a self-consistent and generally polished user experience.
        Linux has 2 (two) major competing graphical servers which are both absolutely fricked in different ways, and dozens of desktop environments/window managers. Most applications are developed with a specific DE in mind and will look/work like shit on any other. Linux has been chugging along just fine as a server OS or as a kernel to build other OS's around it (Android for example), but the year of the Linux desktop is never ever because freetards can't into UX.

      I don't get this sentiment. I've been using macOS at work for a year now and the UI is good, but not better than linux. Maybe it's somewhat more stable, but I've still had glitches and issues that required me to restart the machine. And the UI could be way way more intuitive. Gnome3 makes much more sense. Why does macOS need separate spotlight search, mission control and app launcher when GNOME shows that all of those can be a single UI accessible by a simple press of the super key? Don't get me wrong, I like macOS, but it isn't a lot better than linux.

            before any reply, both Windows and GNOME DE allow you to turn these time wasting animations off. Last I used a mac a roughly decade ago, you couldn't turn them off.
            Windows settings:
            Accessibility -> Visual Effects -> Animations (off).
            GNOME settings:
            Accessibility -> Seeing -> Reduce Animation

            LaJackson, you needed 60 minutes to write your one liner comment and you are seriously complaining about animations that are not even wasting time?
            Did you ever hear about visual ergonomics and why this is important?

            The problem with you basement dwelling troonixers is that you never worked a single day in your life but still complain about efficiency and productivity.
            It's like sitting in a wheelchair and talking shit about the behavior of a certain road racing bike model over another one.

            I can tell you what happens when you work in a company and show up with a troonix laptop: Not a single software required to work with to get the job done you get paid for is running on your friggle machine.
            You will need to use a VM or emulator for every single one of them.

            Office files won't run or show properly on either your or the rest of your work teammates computers, CAD files won't be cretaed according to ISO standards and show weird artifacts or frick up interpolations in the G-Code programming and many more issues that usually occur because of people like you, who know better.

            Same goes for music and video editing. There is simply nothing that can match a Mac in this regard, even though, Windows got a lot better in the last 5 years. But troonix is far from being usable on a professional level.
            But sure, freak the frick out about muhh animations.

            My recommendations to you:
            Un-troony yourself, get a proper Mac, try finding a REAL natural born GF, move out your mothers basement and get a life and job. And for fricks sake, stop using drugs.

            Still latency is lower on CoreAudio than other protocols like ASIO and such.
            So you defenitely have an advantage using CoreAudio for both Tunderbolt/PCI-Express or USB connections.
            If you loop back and forth latency accumulates, so you want it to be as low as possible for every step taken.

            These animations are not even annoying, but visibly tell you what window went in which corner and similar stuff (you get the idea). It's like a tenth (if even that) of a second. It's literally a non-issue the troon is complaining about.

            Someone who actually has a normal life, would never even consider about this to be a topic in a debate.
            But here the troons and basement dwellers jump the thread and start whining about it.

            Understandable, since the pee in empty coke bottles and sit in front of their outdated troonix machines and wine about macOS not running on their machines.
            They simply said have too much time to go rampant about problems that don't exist in the real world.

            How fricked up must one be to complain about an animation that takes like 0.02 seconds to finish.

            Even if you get to see it a hundred times a day, it's still less than two seconds a day combined.
            So you understand how i simply cannot buy this "muhh time wasting animation" argument.

            eh that shows you probably just don't get it. it's about the instant feedback. like comparing a 60hz monitor to a 144hz one. it might sound silly if you've never tried the higher refresh rate, but once you're used to it, 60hz feels kind of clunky. it's the same thing with (these particular) unnecessary animations. specifically with something like switching desktops via keyboard shortcut. even if youre jumping straight to desktop 3 from 1 it will play a little swiping animation like you just finger gestured
            it might be kind of neat and part of the experience if you're new to the OS and/or are just generally slow to operate a computer anyway, but for me it's just a downgrade compared to instant response

            again it's a small thing but I definitely would turn them off

            Well, i constantly work with it and theoretically, it slows you down for about one hundred of a second, but that's neither annoying nor does it hinder me in my workflow.
            And i mean i use different desktops all the time. I have two monitors with one monitor having four desktops and the main monitor having three desktops plus a virtual machine which has it's own desktop to be "swept" to. So in total these are eight desktops.

            I never had a problem to switch between them and also never felt it's slowing me down in terms of workflow and speed. And i am really fast at this.
            As with most of the UI stuff in macOS, i'm sure you can change or disable these animations with a one liner in Terminal.

            Again it’s more about the feel, not the loss of the seconds it takes for the animation to complete.

            Would not surprise me if you could disable or even speed up the animations via Terminal.
            I remember when setting up macOS after a clean install, i sped up the appearing of the dock when it's in auto hide. Did this via Terminal since the settings don't have this function.
            But that's ages ago i did this and i now let the dock stay permanently visible.

          This would be true 10 years ago, but many HP, Dell, and Lenovo have trackpads that are at least on par with ones on Macs.

            see, this is the problem with average IQfytards: they think there are two use cases for computers and those are programming and websurfing. sure, both can be done with whateverlinux just fine, but there are things you cannot do on those machines if you do them for a living because if you show up with "gimp" or "libreoffice" you'll get laughed out the door.

            this doesn't make the remaining alleged 10% worthless

            people have different priorieties. computers have stopped being nerdy fricktard's autismal toys. people use them for everything, including work

            creative work like art on macOS is less frustrating, adobe software suite is more stable. these people don't care how the computer works. computer is a fricking tool ffs

    Quicklook.
    Quicklook in open-file dialogs.
    Text in most images is automatically OCR'd for search or copying. Any orientation, (not just 90˚ offsets,) and is even pretty good with distortions.
    Trackpad and implementation is unmatched. I've never felt compelled to pull out a mouse when using a Macbook. Trackpoint is nice too, there was a time when I would sometimes stare blankly some keyboards then realize I'm looking for a trackpoint it doesn't have. But any "time savings" from not removing my hands from the home row is negligible; defeated if I overshoot the cursor.

          You can still function on Intel. Keep in mind that Apple has no problem dragging developers & users in to the future.

    Is 16gb of memory really enough, iToddlers? Genuinely curious. I have 32gb on my Lenovo and I can't go back.

      On my work Mac, just Excel can hover around 16GB of my 32GB, not even counting Photoshop and other more intense applications.
      But on my personal Mac I have 16GB and don’t notice any difference in performance using the same applications on my 64GB PC, mostly Lightroom. If anyone could make a good Windows laptop I wouldn’t need a MacBook. But for now I need both because of gayning.

      Don't listen to iToddlers about RAM. They will unironically tell you 8GB is more than 16GB.

          How much did that cost? I just can't get over paying for memory when it's so trivial on a non-mac. They really need to get over this business practice in regards to storage and memory, it's the only thing holding me back. That and I love larping like I'm using 1980s unix.

    Had it not been for some certain software that only works on windows and I need for work (and it doesn't work well through parallels or whatever the frick) I would have bought a macbook whatever. On laptops I think the OS is just adequate.

    Well, if I was using linux, DE would be gnome, which is just shitty macOS, so why not just use macOS?
