Before I get started, I’d like to say I haven’t posted in a long time because I’ve been in the process of moving to a new city, and its been a hectic period. (Also, I didn’t have anything to write about.) Now that I have some downtime, I need to vent quickly.
In the art field, most vacancies I’ve encountered ask for their applicants to work on a mac. To me, that’s a bit of a curse, and the ghost that haunts me is my own MacBook pro. There are, of course, the obvious complaints that Windows users posit to avoid buying a mac. These range from, “it’s much more expensive”, to “many software companies don’t make mac versions of their software”, and “they’re evil.”
Aside from the obvious complaints, there are some baffling usability issues that many owners complain about, but Apple refuses to address. Under any normal circumstances, they would be quirks that come with the territory. The fact that these issues haven’t been addressed is what makes them game breakers for me. These are my 4 main reasons for never buying a MacBook pro unless someone threatens bodily harm.
