I’m so glad I dumped my Apple stock when it hit $600.00.
Don’t get me wrong. I still think Apple makes killer products. Nobody, but nobody, is better at basic industrial design and a rock-solid consumer ecosystems than Apple. If you want the most elegantly designed, longest-lasting, most functional, personal computing tool on the market, the odds are it’s going to be an Apple product.
Every time someone asks me, “What should I buy? A Mac or a PC?” my answer is easy. If you want the most durable, easiest to use, best designed laptop on the planet, grab a Macbook Air. Light. Long battery life. Blazingly fast. Durable. You’ll still be doing great work on it 7 years from now. Spend more, enjoy more.
I can’t say the same for ANY other major PC manufacturer except Lenovo. I’m in LOVE with my first-gen Lenovo Yoga 13. (I’m typing this on it now.) And from what I’ve seen of the Yoga 11s and the second gen Yoga 13, I think Lenovo has hit the sweet spot in the competitive laptop marketplace. The Yoga line actually makes Windows 8 appear – dare I say it – usable.
