|I'm typing this on my late 2010 MacBook Air. Recently I was starting having problems with it (you know when you type your password and the system does not recognize your key presses, etc.). And I thought, “Oh, ok, I have to accept that we live in a world of planned obsolesce (how else faster-than-a-gigahertz multi-gigabyte-RAM machine could become slow? If it is capable of real-time response to user's actions, it should respond in real-time) and I have to upgrade to get my job done”.|
So I switched to this new aesthetically marvelous wonder: an early 2015 13 inch MacBook Pro.
In 5 days I'm using it the machine restarted two (or three?) times "because of problems" though it has much less software installed than my old rock-stable-in-comparison MacBook Air. And now I'm installing an OS update which already restarted my system twice. First it restarted the system, than it said, “Ooops, I cannot verify the update”, fiddled with it for several more minutes, restarted-downloaded-restarted... Why didn't in verify update before restarting in the first place?
Thank you, Apple. But could you please stop shooting things with zirconium particles (seriously, “ordinary” polishing works fine for me) and return to your heritage of making a hassle-free unified experiences? (And also please give us back an iPhone that could fit in a pocket because the certain Asian markets are not the only things out there. When you broke the continuity of your design between the iPhone 5S and the 6 it was as if Porsche suddenly stopped making cars in its tradition and started copying BMW or whatever. But that's up to you, actually). And I'm waiting till my “Magic” mouse reconnects to my new shiny “Pro” machine (it gets disconnected several times a day though it is 20 cm apart and battery is near 100%) and getting back to work. Have a nice day!
