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

Publisert 10. mars. 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?

  • I did the switching 2 years ago. All things in Mac can be translated into Windows. Follow this: Apple music -> Spotify Safari -> Chrome all the way iCloud -> Google Drive iMessenger -> WhatsApp all the way The only thing which is a bit hard to move on is the Note App. But I manage to survive with OneNote. Congratz! Now you have plenty of windows devices choices from cheaper ones until the more expensive ones. Also, go switch to Android. It is better for your future.

  • What background is that?

  • Windows is not that bad? Sounds like he is trying to convince himself.

  • All because his E key broke.

  • So you dropped the Apple ecosystem because of a keyboard and the fact that “windows is kinda pretty now”, deep review man

  • That happened to me but i found out that the reason was because crumbs or something like that was getting under the keys and because of the butterfly mechanism in the keys which makes them shallow when a crumb getsunder it makes in difficult to type. Don't go hating apple when you could really just get a keyboard cover or not eat around it.

  • When you realize apple is really f****** overrated and get a quality Vseries and life's good

  • Phones are computers... Get a phablet Baby...

  • I have a lot problems with Apple... Mi Mac book pro was so expensive and have so many problems... Battery, connector charge, screen, motherboard... I take care my Mac but... God I don't wanna have another... The upgrade of his OS make my Mac book pro go more slow... That is a complete disaster... Bye bye Mac!!! I hope never seen you again 😾

  • Bought MacBook Pro year and half ago, to try it for first time. Now I’m selling it and switching back to Win10 laptop, I don’t like MacOS it’s not for me, especially Finder it’s futile in compare to Win explorer. Probably will buy Asus Zenbook 14 or Carbon 14

  • I use both, sometimes I feel like Windows, sometimes like Mac. I also experiment with Hackintosh before. I have the latest Macbook Air and I am very happy with that, no reported issues here in Australia. For the first time I can use the trackpad on a laptop without the need to connect a mouse. I am using the iPad Pro 2018 12.9" as well to edit 4K video on spot and I am so impress with that. I must say, being able to use your fingers and the pencil for video editing adds another dimension to my workflow and creativity. I also have the Chuwi Lapbook Air, lol, you know, coming for South America sometimes is nice to feel you are using a budget gadget that delivers what you need.

  • E is the most used key on the keyboard...

  • u one funny dude

  • I love your videos.. but you are completely biased person. You will praise huawei the company’s CEO is literally arrested for violating sanctions none other than Canada but you find no reason to make money out of it by making its products videos. Not only you all you tubers who do tech videos are guilty of not standing up for moral values and you blame apple products. Yes they are expensive and not giving most latest configuration , leave it upto consumers if they don’t want they won’t buy it stop spreading your propaganda.

  • I love my MacBook Pro ❤️

  • I am returning the $3k MacBook pro this weekend that just got delivered to my house this past Monday. I was so excited to get it, this was my very first MacBook, and yet so much disappointment. First Apple overcharged my debit card by 1k, that I'm still waiting a refund for, I hate the lack of diversity in connections as other people have said here - this is totally a marketing ploy to get you to buy another apple product, I had to spend 2 hours to get the thing to work with my external monitors, keyboard and mouse after purchasing a usb-c port replicator, then I didn't realize how expensive it would be to get windows 10 to run parallel on it, that I would not only have to buy the program that assist with running it at the same time but also another license of windows 10 so that was going to be almost another $300. Nope, done. I think I'm going to get a Microsoft book 2 or a Lenovo. Never been disappointed with my Lenovos.

  • _My any key stopped working _*_help_*

  • Lew you hate apple 🍎 today the laptop and tomorrow is gonna be the AirPods 😂

  • I can't believe you prefer to use windows 10 v MACOS

  • I watched this video expecting to see some interesting assertions about why he believes that a Windows PC is now better than a Mac. I'll agree that he was overall fair and level-headed in his arguments. However, for the most part he simply re-stated that same things that most pro-Windows people have been saying for years. Ok, so this particular Mac model has had some problems with the keyboard. While Apple's quality control may have slipped a bit in past years, one particular situation like this shouldn't cast a shadow on the entire product line. Every computer manufacturer has their issues, and if we are going to quit using a platform for their slip ups, then we wouldn't be using any computers at all. While Apple needs to step up their game back to the level they are famous for, it's like saying that someone who used to be getting 99% in a class and has slipped to 93% is failing. No, they need to realize they are slipping and fix it but they are still getting an A. Yes, Windows 10 has made strides. It is, depending on the computer it is running on, much more reliable and stable than previous versions of Windows, including early Windows 10. It is more refined and overall less clunky for most uses and users. And yes, when you are using basic software programs like a web browser and office software, then the underlying platform is less relevant. So if you want a commodity computer, then a Windows PC is a candidate, no doubt. But so are Chrombooks and iPads! And Windows still has the elephant in the room of malware infections that are the bane of users everywhere. No discussion of the platforms can be complete without addressing that scourge that can make or break someone's use of their technology. It's a discussion for another time, but he completely ignores it here. Otherwise, his arguments are old hat, primarily focusing on hardware. Here's the thing, Apple doesn't sell just hardware. They sell an integrated platform of hardware, software, and services. As a technology professional that is as fluent in Windows as Mac/iOS, I appreciate the differences beyond the shallow surface comparisons between the two platform. I appreciate them because besides my 35 years of personal experience, my 25+ years of professional experience has shown me what my clients deal with day in and day out. Someone who is very comfortable with technology can definitely get things done with Windows - just as they can with a Mac. But people who are not technology proficient are much more susceptible to little problems becoming significant hurdles to overcome. Plus when taking advantage of the full power of the synergy of Apple devices and services, then computing across multiple devices is seamless and actually a joy to use. Not everyone needs or cares about that. But not everyone also needs or wants commodity computing either. So bottom line, people of influence should be very careful when throwing out blanket recommendations like this. It's all find and good if you want to "quit" Apple because you feel another product is better for you based on the way you compute and your technical proficiency. But keep in mind that there is a whole world of people for whom Windows is still too complicated for comfort. I would argue that Apple is still the best for most people, so you shouldn't feel bad for your original assertion.

  • It's never to late. Welcome home, lost son. We embrace you and we're not angry for your sins. Hail Android, hail windows!

  • I can hear the "RRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE" from the Apple fancucks already. "That's because your using it wrong RRRRREEEEE NPC MODE INITIATED".

  • 8.5k fanboys dislike this 😂 get outta here boi

  • Can you really not get more than one sentence out without having to do a cut? Very annoying to watch btw...

  • I think u're not authorized for this comparin' man, u deserve the windows shit

  • i use lenovo yoga 520 windows laptop

  • I’ll never upgrade my 2015 mbp until they revert back from the terrible “improved” keys...

  • ThinkPad is awful! XPS will blow your mind!

  • and you haven't heard of Linux?

  • i switched too due to low processing power with bad graphics and bad value for investment and i dont miss my macbook pro

  • Sick of Apple, still think SJ is with them and he is not. Cook cares about politics more them making a good computer. Just ordered a Lenovo Extreme. Hope I like it.

  • I've been with Windows through thick and thin. I say its the overall winner between Mac and Windows. The only reason why I have a Mac is because of "Work" which is required because everyone has a damn Macbook Lol

  • Apple died with Steve Jobs. However, their software is brilliant.

  • Respect!

  • I mean that is the ugliest Windows laptop ever but I get it's a nice keyboard etc. What I mean is why did you compare Lenovo with Apple and not Microsoft surface or high end HP laptops.

  • i have both n windows is better bcoz many apps which i use r not for windows. and i can change hdd/ssd on win pc anytime without thinking about hifi pricing

  • i like my macbook keyboard :)

  • I always felt that MACs are for right-brain thinkers and Windows Systems appeal more to the left brain thinkers. Being a right handed left brain thinker, mac-systems always drove me nuts. I found them to be the most illogic, complicated P0S's out there... whereas I could always find my way around any windows version with ease. Those in my circle of friends, who are NOT so "good" at using computers and pieces of technology, seem to get along better with the macintoshs however. So I conclude: if you KNOW what you are doing, you will have a much smoother user-experience with windows/android systems... and if you are more on the "out there", esotherik, woodstock, burning-man, kinda mindset... you'll be much less stressed by an mac/iOS system. In the end it's horses for courses. Don't be a fanboy, get the best system that appeals best to your dominant brain-hemisphere.

  • NO-tvs annotations are rude and disrespectful to your viewers. Until NO-tvs moves them above or below the screen, don't use them. Thank you

  • In my opinion you have got paid to do this ,,, oh man you have said a lot of negative things about ThinkPad laptop even exceed issue with MacBook keyboard. Without you even know it. Thanks though keep the good work

  • Apple forgot to give his paycheck.

  • Windows10 + office 2016 is the best thing to happen with computers

  • You suck ! Just like your click baits

  • I have a cheap Acer Chromebook that's held up better and I prefer using over a 2017 MacBook Pro.

  • My experience exactly with switching to an X1 Carbon after a decade with Apple and three warranty repairs on a 2017 $2600 MacBook Pro that then died twice out of warranty. I bought a used 4th gen X1 for less than half the cost of fixing the MacBook and use Linux mint most of the time. Much better device and experience than the MacBook at a fraction of the cost.

  • u had a bite from that roasted apple , then u open a window to smell fresh air

  • when u change ur religion

  • Great choice. Switched to X1 Carbon ages ago... never looked back

  • I'm a fan of the Surface series. They've been great.

  • Everyone NEEDS to Know This. . . Windows Is Better than Mac

    • Everyone NEEDS to Know This. . . GNU/Linux is better than windows

  • Good for you mate....good for you

  • I am an iPhone user but fuck Apple man. Piece of shit company

  • Long live the penguin!!!

  • The best computer for most people ! You already blew your. credibility.

  • I am using a mac book pro the now and i am having no probleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • Do not confuse software and hardware, apple software is reliable, windows is and always will be unreliable, they just don´t understand that there is people who needs professional operative systems for to work on....

    • +F.C Barcelona #1 yeah, you´re right, go and get your updates, please don´t turn off your computer, oh at least you have a recovery point for to get back to the beginning, yeah you have to reinstall all your precious software again, well who cares...it is funny, it is not so bad that it will take you all the afternoon...meanwhile, I will keep working

    • Do not confuse work with play. PC can do a 1,000 things more than what Apple can. Most software only works with Windows. Apple works smoother, as long as you like limiting yourself to being an unemployed art student with photoshop.

  • Windows 10 is really the best Windows that has ever been. It's a lot more user friendly, it's beautiful to look at, and it's quite responsive. And the hardware has always really had the edge on Apple products, just the vast majority has typically been sub-par, with a few notable stand outs.

  • I also like windows 10. It’s pretty refined now.

  • apple laptops have only been good for their editing software they are too underpowered for their price tags and im not being biased because I do love their iphones

  • I sell tech for a living. The best device to experience windows on is hands down a Surface Pro. EXCEPTIONAL EVERYTHING in the newer models. I stopped using IPADs long time ago. unproductive gimmick tool. I use HP Workstation (BEST) Surface Pro (BEST) and then iPhone SE (Best form factor best Price performance Apple Phone).

  • Apple laptops are not the same anymore. Also switching from Apple after 8 years...

  • lenovo needs to hire this guy as CMO

  • Well can I buy them from you? I need a updated MacBook Pro

  • My only issue with Apple laptops is the touchbar and lack of upgradability. PCs are overly convoluted with a number of connections I will never use.

  • I'm really thinking to do the same thing. I tottaly agree with you the fact the Windows is cleaner now. People can say whatever they want but it is.

  • I highly, highly prefer macOs over Windows (and I'm saying this as someone who used Windows for almost 20 years). Too bad Apple messed up their hardware. To my very big regret, I have to agree with this video. My next machine will be running Windows+Linux. I will miss macOs dearly 😢 but I won't buy this faulty Apple hardware. Especially at the prices they are charging, such blatant shortcomings are absolutely unacceptable. Also, the responsible person at Apple who thought it would be a good idea to replace the Escape and Function keys on a Macbook Pro, in favor of the frigging touch bar, should be fired on the spot.

    • you can install macOS on a pc. google hackintosh.

  • Sheesh man, at that rate you barely even need a computer.

  • You got an iSheep inoculation? Good man; welcome to the club.

  • I got both, the Apple and the Lenovo Thinkpad x1 Carbon, but the x1 is also not a perfect laptop. In 1 year 2 times broken (send it back to Lenovo to repair) and also the damm thing runs like a Lada from the 60's, from time to time I have to restart while running programs. Apple has to fix their problems and we can start use Mac again.

  • The question is : How much lenovo paid you? 😂

  • Macbook pro 2012

  • Work in tech support and every time we get an influx of calls, is because Windows 10 did an update and broke something. Not just in the software we create, but other software as well. That being said, my mac is running super slow, after pretty much having everything replaced in it. Need to upgrade, but don't know which route to go.

  • What OS Version are you running on the Mac?

  • Since steve jobs is gone apple havent realesed one good product, everythink comming out is average or bad, specially Iphones!

  • F### Apple

  • really think the 2013 15 inch pros are the best laptops apple ever made, maybe the 2014 but I never tried them, I really hope they move back to the keyboards they used to have. there is nothing making me want to upgrade despite using the computer pretty hard with music production and 3d work, just can't fault this machine haha. reckon this generation could beat all the windows laptops out today too

  • f**k laptops!!!

  • i am windows user and never had an apple laptop cause always were too expensive for me, but for my next laptop i promised myself that i would buy and i mac as much as it costs. i am saying this cause i dont want you to say that i am a follower of apple. I do want you to give us an answer how are you going to solve the big problems with windows, cause the minute you start using windows everything is slower and you need the double time to do your work, and after of some months of use you need to buy a new a laptop . This thing you dont get to have when you are using mac, i have seen it, all my friends are using mac and their laptops are twice faster than mine even that my laptop has better features and it is newer than theirs

  • I'm good with 2014 mbp. No dongle life except ethernet. And for productivity.. Srry mac.. Better to stick with windows, as I need more than fcpx.

  • Depends what you want to accomplish.....both machines and OS's are purpose built and targeted to certain use cases. I have been working in enterprise IT for over 25 years I'll tell you the same thing I tell anyone who asks me what they should get...... Business and Gaming use = Windows wins Hands Down! Creative use - Music Creation, Video Editing, and Photo manipulation, Apple wins hands down! The ideal situation would be to have one of each like I do ;) Battlefield 5 on my Acer Predator 15 Final Cut on my Imac Pro 13 X1 Carbon is a business laptop and its great for that use so again, it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For work, they give us Dell Latitude 7490's ..... They are great and light and good for Mail Web Powerpoint etc..... But crap for anything else! YOU KNOW I'M RIGHT LEW!!!! --sam

  • ... it got prettier...

  • I just built myself a Hackintosh from an older Dell laptop. It can be a royal pain to setup, but if you need to run MacOS (which I do for Logic and XCode) then it's the best of both worlds.

  • This guy makes a lot of money from apple. Hypocrite lol

  • That worm that bore the hole on the apple is finally a butterfly..

  • Apple's are gimmicky anymore. Quality controls steadily been going down hill. Been using apple exclusivly since 2005. Not any more. Steve Jobs is probably rolling over right now.

  • I work as designer and also mobile app developer so i stuck with macbook just for iOS app develop, nothing else

  • "Most of the things I interact with is in chrome. " Just buy Chromebook

  • How about the Fn-key beeing placed where the Ctrl-key should have been on the X1? That's a dealbreaker for me. Sorry (mac :)!

  • Hardware: it sucks that that a simple but annoying flaw is a deal breaker, but if it does't work, it doesn't work. Software: it all depends on what you want the device to do. Like you said, most of what you do resides in the Chrome browser, which means you could even go Linux or Chrome. Yes, Windows is "prettier" than it used to be. But for the video and audio editing I do, Mac has been the best for me for 10+ years. Gamers? Go PC/Xbox. Production? Go iOS/macOS.

  • My sister has an Macbook Pro and she loves it. Im stuck with my Acer laptop 😡

  • Norton ruined Windows for me... came pre-packed with malware from the unboxing.

  • Retina Mid 2015 last great MacBook Pro... Tim Crook needs to be removed as CEO of Apple. He is destroying company. Windows understands UI/UX because of the years with XBOX team. They've came out on top.

  • Apple makes products for addicts.

  • I'm not comparing you to Vanna White until I see you in a mini-dress.

  • Agree. We dropped $1495.00 for a brand new MacBook Pro in 2013. It worked so-so, it would black-screen a few times and I had to reset it a few times. Then the screen went totally dead 2 month's after the warranty expired. Estimated repair bill to change the Logic Board $495.00. I need not write or say anything more.

  • Great review. I am having exactly the same issue. Have Macs since early 90-s and it is in my mind almost impossible to make that switch. I live for two years with keys that don't function well. It differs when it is cold or warm etc. Ridiculous to work like this for such a long time. One month ago I switched my Iphone to a Samsung S9 and that feels weird and takes time to adjust to it. I am thinking to buy a Huawei Matebook Pro. Thoughts?

  • The only apple products I've used so far: an iphone 3gs long ago (Crap, sold it), an ipode nano I believe (Used only as an usb device, stolen), an 80gb Ipod, which I also used as a usb device, very useful to me, died all of a suden.....anyways, apart from that, never was and never will be an apple product's fan.......

  • There are plenty of great WINDOWS laptops or notebooks out there. The windows 10 software is more reliable, futuristic, easy and fun to use.

  • What can we do for you
