Here’s my two cents about the annoying things that bug a tech enthusiast like myself.
Macbook Pro. What is this thing? It’s a product of Steve Job’s amazing public speaking, product introduction and verbal persuasion. The new Macbook Pro for 2011 rolled out earlier this year and it wowed everyone. Why? Because they made a HUGE announcement and it was felt worldwide. Suddenly, everyone thought it was the next best thing to sliced bread. All I have to say is….Get you head out of your ass.
Macbook Pro is only really good because of little things that make it the only suitable product of interest. Now most of you are thinking, what does he mean by that? Well here it is.
Macbook Pro has the Multi-Touch Capacitative Trackpad, the lush pure aluminium Unibody construction and the Mac OS X only software.
Now what does that mean? Well it means, you can only use the Mac OS X (don’t really know what the X stands for) can only be applied to the Apple related hardware. That means you can’t use great programs such as Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Garageband, and etc. on any other computer. Screw you, Apple, but its a gosh-darn smart strategy to bind your customers to Apple without them really knowing it.
Staying with my topic, the Macbook Pro, I’ve realized that it’s a very BACKWARDS product. Its nothing NEW, besides the multi-touch trackpad. Compare this to the Dell XPS Laptop.
Now the Macbook Pro introduced new processors from Intel reaching a possibility of using Quad Core processors as well as 16 GB DDR3 Memory cards. That’s a big step for the Apple followers. However, none of this is new. It’s been done before on MANY laptops before that. The quad-core processors have been introduced into a laptop way before Macbook Pro with the Alienware Laptops (now conveniently owned by Dell) and the 16GB memory cards have been used by many others. Dell is even putting Blu-ray writing capabilities onto their laptops, up to 16GB of memory, 3D graphics (Yes, 3D), and True-HD. Yes, it comes with a default 1080p capable screen. WHAT THE HELL, APPLE!
So, when it really comes down to it. Which will you pick? Apple-Loyal or adventurous techie?
