    After many years using MacBook variants I've made the switch to Windows. I've used every version of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air that have been released. My current laptop of choice is the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon / Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme.Turns out switching from Mac to Windows isn't as painful as I expected.

I will still get a Macbook Air ( new one) Not because it is cool, but because TO ME it looks nice ( which motivates me to write - I am weird, do not judge) and because I HATE that windows does not include the OS when you buy it...and I can't really afford to buy it separately so I resort to methods I do not like

@Unbox Therapy, you're one of the biggest names in tech here on YouTube and you somehow did not know Apple stopped making good keyboards beginning in March 2015 with the 12" MacBook and then in late 2016 drove the nail deeper into the coffin when they put that horrid butterfly keyboard in the MacBook they call "Pro"? The final toll of the death knell came with the 2018 "renewal" of the MacBook Air, which is the model you own.  Seriously, I've used and loved Macs since the 128k in 1984 and have never defected to Windows, yet I know that the last great MacBook Pro Apple ever made was the mid-2015 model BECAUSE of the keyboard. Apple is now on its 3rd generation of those wicked butterfly key switches and users are still plagued with problems. If a horrid keyboard was the only problem, perhaps some could live with it, but Apple didn't stop there. Apple gutted the MacBook Pro of its pro features like the SD card slot, MagSafe, LED on charging cable, all USB-A ports (which now in March 2019 are still ubiquitous around the world), removed the extension power cord from being a standard item, and they killed off the glowing Apple logo on the back of the display too. Some Cupertino worshippers (the "Apple always knows more than the consumer" mentality types) try to defend Apple by saying nobody needs USB-A or SD card slots while at the same time forgetting that even the $5000 iMac Pro has both, in addition to USB-C. Even the newly released 2019 iMacs have USB-A and SD card slots, for crying out loud!   What Apple has done to its notebook line is inexcusable, and Johnny Ive's extremist minimalism is at the heart of it. Steve Jobs gave too much power to Ive, and Tim Cook is too much of a hands-off CEO to change that. Yet despite all this foolishness from Apple, I would not want to defect to Windows as you have. I prefer MacOS, which is all the more reason some of us are literally in tears over the bad choices Apple has laid upon The Rest of Us -- the real Mac faithful.

I'd rather use a Chromebook or even an iPad over windows. You need the absolute bleeding edge for it to not be annoying. It's more feasible for desktops, but literally any OS except Windows would work for me if we're talking laptops

Apple Laptops are very good, and have a fantastic design. But they are too expensive. 15% less and it's ok. Asus has way more bang for the buck. But they don't look so fancy.

Doesn’t the OS matter? When I have a massive Java project running on a Mac, it works without a hiccup. On a PC, it’s a case of typing a character and it shows up three seconds later. Unacceptable. When I used a PC, I ended up writing code in a text editor and compiling it from the command prompt. Even editing a page in WordPress, it’s the same delayed typing bullshit. Fuck PC’s... Fuck ‘em.

Clarification, please... is this a complete quit or a personal? You showed a minimal setup, showing little that one would expect on the main computer of a YouTube content creator. So is this a personal machine or a machine used for personal and professional projects, etc? Because if Unbox Therapy is being produced on an Apple product this is a rather disingenuous proclamation. If this is just a personal laptop switch, why did you go with a Windows PC? As you stated the apps you use are minimal, everything else is within the Chrome browser... why didn't you go with a Chromebook?

Granted I've always been a Windows fan but last year I bought an HP Envy X360 2-in-1 and compared specs. They were higher than the top macbook in pretty much every way. Thickness, ram, speed, drive space, etc. Plus it was convertible to a tablet. And the cost was way less. It really is a no brainer.

Using Mac at home and a Dell laptop at work. Windows is nice for enterprise and servers but its not very good for consumers. Lots of drivers issues still. Booting up the Dell from fabric and the cpu was at 80% when playing a youtube video. Needed to replace the sound drivers cause there was a problem with that driver. Suddenly my coworkers couldn't connect to any openVPN based vpn since windows broke it with some windows updates. Personally i can't stand PC laptops cause they have sooooo bad touchpads. Not responsive and small :( And first thing you need to do is format the computer since it comes with so much bloatware :( Windows terminal is also pretty useless compare to macOS terminal. Missing iMessage/sms, airdrop to much when working on my PC

Personally I switched because I hate iTunes and I don't understand why Apple needs a copy of all my pictures on the cloud just to get them off my phone... Just a theory but with Steve Jobs being known as a hard ass around the company, it would make sense that now he is gone his demand for quality is not being met. Maybe quality control is slipping around the Apple office.

Both mac and windows are good. The problem with Windows is that it doesn't tend to stay good without a reinstall every year or so. Seems to clog up and get problems. And Windows10 is a mess in many areas. They still haven't got to their destination with regards to settings vs control panel and it shows - awful. Windows 7 was the last interface that made 100% sense but Win 10 is superior in many ways. OSX is at least as good as Win10, probably slightly better

I was an avid Windows user for 20 years until two weeks ago where I switched over to Mac having thrown the towel in with Windows and their useless software that got worse and worse with each update. Picked up a mint used 2012 MacBook Pro, fully specked out and saved a lot of money and headaches in the process. While I am getting use to Mac I am glad I did the change.

Once Apple was the antidote to the always sameish gray / beige computers. No they sell basically the same design for decades in grey. I don't think the Mac Book looks particular stylish, for quite a while now it is just as boring as what it once stood against.

The jump to USBc for power was more concerning to me, they went from a perfect magnetic connector, to a flawed easily snapped off straight connector that looks like a throw back from the 90's. Oh, and the lack of an HDMI port is just stupid, is Apple becoming completely tone deaf? They have completely ignored the EDU world. No one can present with those crappy dongles, and wireless to screen is still a long way off.

I switched recently from my 2011 15" i7 MacBook Pro to a Lenovo ThinkPad P52, after my MacBook needed to be repaired tree times, because of the graphic bug. (It works at the moment. I don't trust it anymore, though.) Apple only cares about making their devices thinner, instead of designing adequate cooling. While the MacBook and MacBook Air might be okay for their target group, the new MacBook Pro is just unacceptable for "pro users": throttling, crappy keyboards, only a few ports and don't even think about upgrading. Unfortunately, I don't expect Apple to build good computers and sell them at reasonable prices, anytime soon. So, it's unlikely, that I'll switch back.

Finally he realized that apple is just trash. Really speaking apple isnt good at all its "faster" only works for their phones really speaking spec wise if you're into that u would know that apple is fairly sh** (no that bad but its bad) its not the "best thing u can get" apple is legit kinda just overhyped stuff if u ask me lol like u pay around "1k" for a laptop and u can buy a pre-built or build ur own "desktop" and or laptop (u cant build a laptop but u can get 1 for 850$ or so and its still 1000000% better then apple) its kinda unreal i dont understand how people didnt realize that apple is honestly not that good like their phones yea they are faster then "other phones" but lack hardware so honestly if u dive into into which is really better apple is kinda just there for looks etc. But even then even desktops or laptops can still look better can still be better have RGB etc. Mac is shit i go with windows its more simple more just overall better u can do way more sh** on it and it just overall is more simple
