Here's why I'm officially quitting Apple Laptops.

Avaldati 10 märts 2019
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.

  • Are you using Mac or Windows?

  • Let get that macbook if you don't mind

  • Honestly, once going to Mac I don't want to go Mac. I really dislike Windows based on experience. That being said I'm still using my MacBook Pro Retina from 2012, I really hate what they've done with the new keyboards. The old retina MBP shell was/is the best designed Macbook and one of the best-designed laptops of all time. Windows is great for gaming and shit but I like to be more productivity-focused these days and just do casual gaming on a console when I get time. I've had to use Windows for work before and I honestly hate it, the constant pop-ups, updates, sounds and crashes while working on projects really infuriates me. I could never replace my MacBook with a windows laptop, I would make a windows desktop though

  • I use macOS as mu personal computer because I like the Apple ecosystem, everything sync up. Apple notes (getting great), ability to do pdf’s without Adobe. I use Windows 7 and 10 at work and they are adequate. I don’t buy new MacBook Pro’s. I buy them used for a fraction of the cost of new. My 2013 MacBook Pro is fast and a great computer.

  • Most of the time i use the Trackpad and not the Keyboard. And this is way more better on the Macbook.

  • APPLE IS BULLSHIT. IDIOTS OVERPAY FOR A SUBPAR PRODUCT. ONLY THING GOOD ABOUT APPLE IS FINAL CUT PRO

  • I just switched away from Mac as well. I have an HP Spectre x360 now and I love it. Also traded in my iPhone X for a Note9. Yep, I am done with Apple, but the only thing I do use is Apple Music...and that may be going away for something else too.

  • I'm glad i never been fan of apple and their stupid over price products

  • I switched from windows to apple here recently. I much prefer apple

  • ThinkPads are also built like a tank, at least T-series and X-series.

  • OFF TOPIC: What watch are you currently wearing?

  • Windows is NOT more reliable. And everytime you go to use your device, microsoft wants to update. You are on microsoft's time, NOT yours. I've never had that issue with my Mac. That being said, Apple hardware is really in the suck lately.

  • Apple....the best at marketing but the worst in products.

  • Donate some of your equipment to my company and use it as a tax write off u wealthy sissy!!!

  • Apple is an awful company. I came to realize what you just did in 2014 when my 6 month old MBP would randomly shut down. It could be hard to turn back on. Soon after Apple did a program to fix it. But they were charging people before that. Sorry you want to be a premium brand if you fuck up you fix it apple. You can get more powerful computers in similar form factors. Look up louis apple on EE-tv you'll see how awful the quality of the MBP are.

  • Windows is a great system. I'm a mac guy and I use that in the office, but at home, I'm PC all the way. That being said, I work at a University and we provide the Lenovo Laptops like the X1 and other Thinkpads, and I'm telling you, they're terrible laptops. Stay away from Lenovo. Their bloatware on laptops is horrible, and for being "Tough" designed and for harsh enterprise environments look bad in my opinion and break way to easily. They're cheap though, and that's why the University is sticking with them.

  • I had this problem on a personal and work Macbook. Blew the keyboards out with compressed air. Problem solved. Dirt got under the actuator. I use both Macbook and Windows PC. I love both OS. But I don't think I'll be giving up my Macbook Pro anytime soon

  • Apple didn't wanted to renew their partnership with you? lmao

  • ive always found lenovo keyboards layout kinda retarded, they feel okey, but thats the thing, theres a brand for everyone, im sure a lot of people cant get away from that macbook keyboard, same as i absolutely love HP keyboards so yeah reliability being subpar is the only thing you should take away from this, if confirmed to be fixed, just get your fruity laptop and be happy, its all very subjective

  • How much did they pay you to say this?

  • how are you enjoying all the built in ads via the start menu, pop ups, ect?

  • until PC notebooks can match the mac trackpad, nothing else matters

  • Over dramatic

  • If you claim to know anything about hardware yet still opt for Apple your in denial, a $1,500 Apple has about $600 worth of PC parts, your basically paying $900 for that logo.

  • Thinkpad X1 Carbon + Linux mint FTW :)

  • they done invite me to the keynote so.... all this videos.... 😂😂😂

  • "You need to have good battery life" Meanwhile, I am sitting on Asus ROG laptop, that sucks up battery in fucking 45 minutes because of powerful specs XD Fuck battery life, performance is the most important thing in laptop in my opinion.

  • It's like a video of someone who's quit drugs and now is bragging about it. :D

  • How you can occupy your mind with such useless crap??????????? There are so many more interesting to think about in life!

  • I agree, Lenovo is an awesome brand. I have a Lenovo P72, but I am using Fedora + Gnome, and I love it. The keyboard is phenomenal. I used to be a MacBook Pro user.... not anymore. Windows is too far behind the curve.

  • This is exactly why people should buy stuff thats actually reliable and good quality , other than buying a typical brand just because a public figure uses it .. which is mostly the case for many

  • Using my good old MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 : magsafe, ethernet, SD card reader, get rid of the superdrive and have a 2To HD, 16Go of Ram, 250Go SSD for the apps and Mac OS, all in one, no dongle... 👌🏻

  • It was $780 to fix a bloody keyboard - thank fuck I was still under warranty. Within the first month the keys had started jamming up - $2000+ for something that wears out in a month of moderate use... If your car tyres of your new car wore out after a month - you'd be fuming. Now imagine if the tyres were 'considered' to be half the value of the whole car - and there you have Apple products. I understand the economy of Apple products - Few people actually buy the newest products - so to benefit from second hand apple products - they just ramp up the repair costs - but it really shafts first-hand-owners when you design a product very poorly. Either do a re-call and completely right the wrong - or never see my money again. My original Macbook air had a better keyboard than this piece of junk.

    • And the funniest thing; I was cleaning the hinge joint with a Q-tip and some cleaner - I wasn't pressing hard and the screen actually broke at the Bezel. Now I have a hole in my $2000 laptop from a Q-tip. First time I had done it on this PC. Did it once a week for 4 years on my MB AiR. Apple "Genius" said I might as well buy a new laptop - considering it'd cost more to repair this one. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - GTFO.

  • I have both a Mac Pro that I bought in 2014 for college and I love it and still works great on the other hand the company I work for gave me a think pad for work just a basic company laptop! Now if I were to buy a new laptop for myself I would probably go for a think pad carbon x1 an I know based on cost/benefits there is no comparison.

  • Linux people where you at?

  • I just switched to MacBook Pro after over 15 years of using windows .. honestly, I hated windows so much, every month I had to face a new virus and a new stupid update that does nothing but slowing down my computer. I guess I'm the only one who loves Mac still ! so fast and smooth using .. I don't have to wait till the system knows that I actually opened the computer and the desktop is showing now !

  • Can I get one of your old ones? My macbook pro is from 2008 :(...

  • Thinkpad: productivity, MacBook: creation. It's that simple. The "weird" button placement you mentioned obey this principle, since it's there to help you easily transition from typing to moving your mouse, which you do not do with the track pad but with that big red button on the middle of your keyboard; again for productivity purposes.

  • Welcome back to the land of Windows. Where things make sense. Also you can do far more with it without making apple mad at you. MSI do some laptops with fully mechanical keyboards on them. Its like serious kryptonite.

  • I have a Dell Inspiron 5570 i5. Don't think I need anything else. Does everything perfectly. The design, speakers, backlit keyboard and 15.6" Display. It's perfect for daily usage

  • Guys im a changer. Should I go with x1 carbon or x1 extreme ? the price is more or less the same.

  • "Hi, I'm Cortana"

  • Expensive to fix if you are Apple's sucker. Got to Rossman, be different.

  • do u know what u r missing from switching to windows? spending so much more money from outdated hardware!

  • What you want now is a Matebook and not macbook.

  • You need to "BREAK" in the keyboard. Mine suffered from sticky keyboard in the beginning but has since broken in and is working well. "Dongle hell" is the main reason to switch.

  • 😂😂 wait till it starts blue screening

  • Hi there! And what about the fan noise? I have Lenovo T480s and it’s terribly loud when the CPU usage is higher than 20% and hot air is blowing on my hand which is holding the mouse. What about the X1 Carbon model comparing to MacBook please?

  • Well i had few encounters with macs also their AIO and its keyboard, i really dont know how people can type on this, because they makes me rage. Wrong spacing, not consistence pressure etc. :|

  • GUYS ! GUYS !!!!! You neeeeed to check out this OS called Mojave from Apple. Honest to god, it does a great job at not reading hard drives - heading up and making you, sorry forcing you to pay 3 times the amount of the device it that is running to get fixed because the company that makes this software cares nothing about there clients anymore :D

  • Windows is deal breaker period. Right, the new mac keyboard sucks, but one can work with external keyboard if he/she hates it so much. But with Windows... man, done, no more...

  • Should have mentioned more reasons to switch to pc laptop other than just the keyboard

  • Windows is trash. I wish that i could afford iMac

  • If you’re just using Chrome, why not just get a Chromebook?

  • I spent ten years trying to use Macs and switched back to ThinkPad when Windows 10 was released. And, I haven't looked back. Apple doesn't seem interested in the computer hardware segment of their business anymore.

  • He’ll be back.

  • LOUIS ROSSMAN has been exposing Apples shenannigans in his channels, he repairs Apples mistakes !!!!!!!!!

  • MacBook key is flat which is not comfortable for me when i use it

  • so all this macbook rage and windows promotion started for a keyboard?

  • After being a lifetime Mac user I switched to a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon with Linux last year after my fourth keyboard replacement

  • Month ago I sold my MacBook Pro '15 2016 and bought Lenovo LEGION Y740! Very happy!

  • What's so special about Apple anyway? Asking because I've never own an Apple product..

  • Until you have a project open nd your OS crashes. I use both and hate when I use the Windows based laptop each time. Still not there yet. This guy must use WORD or EXCEL but when you do some heavy lifting, you dont buy a MacBook air and judge a whole brand by it. It like some douche who buys a mercedes C class and talks crap about the entire lineup. Sorry, but this is fake news

  • My X1 has best keyboard

  • You really should look at the new HP Spectre x360. The keyboard is not nearly as good as the X1 (I don't think any other slim laptop can beat it), but the Spectre is one of the sexiest slim laptops right now.

  • You do not have to go back to Windows!! Choose a new direction - get a Linux laptop! I went from Mac to a Dell Linux laptop - and glad I did! If you want an Apple like look but something new then get a Huawei Matbook perhaps and install a beautiful Linux distro!

  • X1 is way cooler than old and overexposed Apple...

  • Gotta admit they have been trying hard for years and got to a point that hardware is way better than the past, other brands have achieved thickness battery and power (thx intel), plus windows have come way better, BUT and there’s a huge BUT, u sure as hell spent HOURS getting rid of games ads and stupid default programs that comes with win 10 (even pro) can’t stand how they call win pro a OS full of games and crappy soft that can’t be deleted. You gotta be a company and pay big bucks for a real enterprise win10 vers. Sys admin here so I was glad about improvements with w7 and also with w10 but can’t stand so much crap and don’t get me started with “new releases” and pushing out of support Older versions... my god this was long. Fuck w10 games and shit still using MacBook as personal device but gotta put their shit together with keyboard and overheating issues like.... YESTERDAY

  • Still prefer mac or linux for developer environment. My home computer is windows.

    • I'm Windows 10 for gaming, Ubuntu with KDE Plasma for everything else

  • You are so sexy without glasses, but this olive coloured shirt, doesn’t fits you. By the way what kind of Smartwatch do you wearing.

  • Damn, my "E" key is fucked as well. Interesting.

  • Been using mac all my life and have been thinking about making the switch to windows myself. Carbon looks like high potential candidate.

  • When in doubt with apple go for Louis Rossmann

  • this faget is blocked due to so much fickle for product shilling

  • I gave up trying to understand why anyone has purchased an Apple product since the Ipod era. Those were the days when I thought Apple had good overall products. Great vid, as usual. Cheers,

  • I actually love apple laptops BUT they are pricing theirselves out of the market. I haven’t got 5k for a new one. If only I could use fcpx on windows

  • Been using Windows since my first windows 3.1 PC in the 90's when I was like 12 years old. Heard all the, "Apple is better," arguments. Used apple in school. Never liked them. Then ended up fixing friends Apple's products, or if I couldn't recommend a windows option. But now, they will still choose to be a blind fanboy. And now, I do watch repair. And I have all these zombies trying to impress me with their Apple watch. /FACEPALM. make it stop.

  • Wow, I have the new Macbook pro, and the windows surface laptop, I rarely use my macbook, I use the iMacs for music production/video production, they are good for that, but on the go, I'm always using my windows laptop, doing little stuff, Im even using Adobe Premiere now on the windows laptop, smh, I see now a lot of people switching to the think pad. Windows have switch their game up, but still can't get with the freezing, you still can't do a lot of things at the same time without something freezing, it's better, but not all the way great yet, (in my opinion)

  • So just the Keyboard issue (One key), led you to move to Windows based lap. UNREAL

  • this is such a stupid video. mac laps have sucked for(ever?) years

  • Do a collab with louis rossman please please please

  • 8k magic dislike, like a magic pen, magic mouse, magic phone... dont worry, u Will pay with real Money, not with magic

  • long overdue, but glad you do now. hopefully you're serious about it. it simply isn't worth it anymore. i suggest you go with Dell XPS line if you're looking for a Thinkpad alternative.

  • Almost sounds like all he needs is a chromebook.

    • Exactly. He's not doing anything hardcore that requires the horsepower of a full blown laptop. It's really just a waste to spend all that money on a windows/apple laptop when all you're going to do is email and surf the internet.

  • The button placement is because of the trackpoint

  • Once upon a time, the MBP had a beautiful, solid, metal keyboard, back when Apple cared about the quality of their products. But now, they are *crap!* I witnessed one of my classmates, who purchased a brand new MBP the day before for $2400 Canadian brake a key; he wasn't being abusive, just typing normally. So he brought it back to its place of purchase, and exchanged it for an MSI gaming laptop, that had *twice* the power at *half* the cost! Furthermore, when his infant son managed to push it off the kitchen table, and onto the floor, it managed to survive the crash with full functionality and nary a scratch! A _very_ tough machine indeed!

  • Get rainmeter and you can make windows even more clean

  • Did this guy really just say that typing on a keyboard gave him a sense of euphoria?

  • Apple will fix the keyboard on the new one. GD that thinkpad is ugly.

  • Welcome home...

  • HP Spectre x360

  • I just switched recently specifically because of windows 10 lol. That OS is a mess, felt like I was using a half assed software. I do agree the keyboard is unreliable and could be way better on the MacBooks though.

  • I bought a 2 year old apple keyboard for my windows pc. I lived happily with it for 6 months and same problem started. Now I bought Thinkpad keyboard for half the price, works much better, is more adjustable and arguably better to write on, and it probably lasts me for next 10 years

  • Nice! Welcome to the team, I did the same switch back in 2014 and I'm not looking back. I wish the youtube developer would it created two thumb up funcions(), I woul give you two thumbs up! :) spread the word

  • Thinkpads are my favorite. I want one so badly ;-;

  • switching to linux would have been a more natural choice. mac and linux are cousins. btw I use arch

  • I use a System 76 Ubuntu Linux laptop and I LOVE it.

    • KDE Plasma > Gnome

  • Apple best for consistency as they are the same, plus security features are tighter. Main market, media and creatives yet no touch screen computers :-).PC companies have to push boundaries to keep ahead of the competition. Apple just release overpriced designer products.

  • I have no plans of switching to Windows, but these keyboards are really bad. I’ve been sticking with my 5 year old MacBook partially because the keyboard is so great. Does your team edit in Premiere? If not, I’d be interested in hearing more about the switch from Final Cut.

  • Will Apple fix no? No... it's a feature, not a bug.
