• Whaaaat? Apple fanboys told me that if I bought an Apple, all my problems would vanish. It would never crash, it would mow my lawn, and it would cure my dog’s cancer. But the reality is: Apple laptops are only the 4th best. And people herd to them like sheep because they respond to B.S. marketing rather than actual data. Of course, as Ian pointed out, 3 other brands are selling better, so aren’t those people even bigger sheep? That could very well be, but Windows users aren’t typically as brand-loyal to specific hardware brands as Apple users. After all, during the evolution of Windows, many hardware manufacturers have risen and fallen. So I tend to think of these people as less sheep, and more aimless wanderers — zombies or fools, if you will. Which I find slightly preferable to sheep. The real people who get my respect are those who spec out individual parts and build their own machines. However, I’m not sure how one would do this with a laptop…
