Seven years ago I tossed out all my Windows computers, windows related hardware etc. Why ? Because I needed a change.
In 2008 I bought myself an Apple MacBook Pro 15″, a Mac Mini, a TimeCapsule and an Apple TV. This was the best day of my life. Never did I experienced such a harmony. All just worked. No hassle, no weird driver installations, no fucked up configurations anymore.
Now its 2015, 7 years later and guess what ? Although I upgraded parts of the hardware (to stay up to date), ALL hardware bought in 2008 still works. Eat that Microsoft!! Before 2008 I owned in little over two years more than 3 windows laptops. All of them didn’t survive. My 15″ macbook pro is still running the latest operating system without any problems. Ok, I upgraded the RAM to 8GB, and yes, I installed a 256 GB SSD, but still the cold-boot startup time is under 1 minute.
Nothing else but apple products for me anymore.
Currently owned hardware :
iPhone 5S 16 GB
iPhone 5 16 GB
Apple TV 1st gen
Apple TV 3rd gen
TimeCapsule 1st gen, upgraded to 1TB
MacBook Pro 15″, 8GB ram and 256GB SSD
