"However, older versions of Apple's operating systems are still vulnerable to the flaw. Because of that, and the other security updates contained in the recent releases, it's recommended that users upgrade their computers."
Right. Because Apple does not want to fix security in older systems (it can), buy new equipment as there will be no patch. Sounds like car owner has to buy new car every three-five years because keys cannot be upgraded/changed by manufacturer. Well I'd certainly buy. I did and made it Linux desktop. All security patches for many years as LTS promises and later change OS to newer (no problem) and extend LTS by probably another few years. But hey you do not get fancy features for 15 minutes fame and use like from Apple. Tradeoff must be made. I did mine after 15 years with Apple computers. MintBook Air (ex-MacBook Air 2010) works like charm and it has security updates.

And as far as Chromebook, well one can by Samsung Galaxy S7 and pay $200 that is normal price instead. Sure resolution is not the same as iPad, but for size and functions there is not much need to go crazy resolutions.
Yes and those defenses were so "smart" that you cannot delete downloaded outdated macOS version installer unless you disable SIP and restart in recovery mode. Yet other files related to the system can be modified. That is how much is worth testing at Apple before product is released to the market.
Linux desktops and laptops look far uglier, but they do not seem to have these kind of problems somehow.

This is exactly why Apple has had hardware compatibility programs in the past, and why I typically buy the accessories listed in the Apple store. The time and headache wasted with poor quality accessories just isn't worth the few bucks of savings.
