There is nothing magical about the hardware or software that Apple uses. If you prefer it fine. If the programs/apps you use tend to favor Apple OS- I can understand it. More programs, more options, more configurability is on the windows side. The durability is a moot point- even though my windows devices last 10+ years- who cares! With the rapid evolution of hardware and software - it's silly to invest that. For $1600- lets say I keep this Mac Book for 6 years. It's outdated in 3 years. The same investment gets you 2 windows laptops with similar specs- so you upgrade in 3 years. Not because you have to- but because you want to.
I don't hate Apple- I just hate the posers. Yeah- you know who you are.
You think we work at Google so we don't use products from our competitors? On my first day at my new job here I received my extremely "overpriced" Macbook Pro with Retina display. Google bought it for every engineer here, from its competitor! Yes, there are as many people use iPhone as Android phones here.
I have no idea what were you talking about in your second paragraph nor do I care. I was only talking about some professionals' computer choices.
Apple's products are about user experience. So if you have not owned one yourself, you are not qualified to comment on this. I own both Windows and Macs, and I use them for difference purposes.
