I think what I'm about to share is common.
I was Windows user then after Windows 8 I switch to Mac..in 2012..right now I am very happy with my purchase I have a non retna 15inch mac and 13inch I got for my wife.
Fast forward to today... If I had to buy a laptop today I would not likely purchase a MacBook... I want to and I look for any chance to stay Apple by any logic means BUT
It makes no sense to have no options in updating a Macbook forced to buy extended service because everything is solder in the logic board..And it's performance and features are as it was 2012...
On the other end I have so many options in build a system far better then what Apple can offer...
Apple use to have products that spoke for itself.. yes it expense but you pay for what you get.. Not anymore by any means
Buy low to collect on dividends..
