Outdated overpriced hardware? Sounds like Apple to me!

Schiller: I feel sad for ppl who use 5 year old computers.

Apple sells a 4.5 year old Mac right now.

He was talking about Wintel PCs, not computers in general.

A 5-year-old Mac typically outperforms a Wintel machine of half that age (assuming the damn Wintel machine actually survives that long.)

You are absolutely out to lunch. Using quality parts, a PC will easily outperform just about any similarly priced Mac with room left over to buy an excellent monitor. 5400 RPM laptop hard drive? Out of date laptop mobile GPU in the iMac? You must be smoking crack.

For the price of a any iMac or Mac Pro you can have a top of the line PC that is better in every single metric.

Better CPU performance, far better graphics performance, better memory capacity and performance, better storage capacity and performance.

Plus you would have all the professional software that is available on a PC that Apple has had no problem abandoning over the years.

Spending all day using a few professional apps to make a living, there is no difference what OS you use. And if you want to get your work done faster for less money use quality parts and go PC.

And when you aren't working, play every single game title available on PC and obviously VR.

You would have to be a moron to spend money of Apple desktop hardware. A child could build an absolutely superior PC machine compared to the anything Mac. And perhaps have enough money left over for a $600 VR headset and a $300 monitor depending on how much your budget is. It's as easy as putting together a few Lego.

Stop overpaying and do a little research. Then again if you have such a hard-on for that Apple logo, get a sticker if it makes you feel better.

Every single metric except it can't run OS X. But hey, if you like the steaming turd that is Windows, more power to you.

If you spend all day using specific programs then the OS doesn't really matter these days to be honest. You almost never see the OS if you are rendering/processing or some other heavy tasks requiring a solid desktop machine.

I understand people have their personal preferences and some may feel locked into their respective ecosystems. That is fine.

Both OS's are far from perfect. I find they both have their bugs and quirks. But if you want/need top of the line performance or the best bang for your buck, Apple just isn't there anymore. When the new Mac Pro came out, it was a pretty good deal and would beat most PC's for similar money. But not anymore. For the same money today, solid PC hardware will run circles around the Mac Pro.

The rest of industry does not stand still but Apple has on the desktop. People do activities that need real render and process power. Not only does time equal money, but the value proposition simply isn't there for Apple desktop hardware at the moment.
