One thing for sure, when people truly don't like something (like, er, gay people) they tend not to discuss it.
Otherwise they place themselves in a position whereby other people wonder exactly why they're so obsessed with the subject in the first place.
Repressed, have you heard of it?

$2,495 for the system (mac write & mac paint bundled)
$595 for imagewriter printer, $29 for the cable
I believe the external floppy drive was $495
box of 400k floppies: $50
external modem: $295
mac draw $195
mac project $195
canvas carry bag: $125
pride of ownership: priceless
it never failed to blow the mind of anyone who saw it running

And a ridiculous £200 to upgrade to the next model which has a 256Gb drive (nothing else different). Go to 16Gb and it’s £1579. Wow.
All dual core processors too.
My 2013 dual core Mac book pro with retina , 16Gb, 512Gb SSD cost less than these.
nothing that apple makes that runs OS X (MacOS, whatever) has a touchscreen unless it's 3rd party.
installed MacOS on a touchscreen hackintosh and it was nice.
really wish apple eventually realizes not everyone who uses apple wants iOS.
loving linux these days more and more. amazing how easy ubuntu installs on old and new hardware with no effort on the user's part.
once all my dev tools run as nice in linux as OS X I'm done, hackintosh VMs for me after that.
these MBPs? no way. never. I'll pick up the last-gen used before I'd pay for such underpowered overpriced stuff.
been using apple stuff for over 30 years, but not much longer. a lot of mac users I know are going ubuntu for laptops / desktops.
thanks for the warning - just turned it off.
but what about the warm, superior hiss of analog static, analogous to the warm superior sound of analog vinyl records?

if there turn out to be engineering errors, great sadness will ensue
consumer value: one star
shareholder value: five stars
What you need to know about Apple Watch Series 2expensive, pointless, lacking utility, appealing to vanity
$1100 for a wristband? Steve Jobs would be so proud.
What Hath Cook Wrought (besides enhancing shareholder value)?
good article. my only regret is that apple is more shareholder focused and less customer focused.
