I have a Sony VAIO laptop that is over 7 years old and still in use. I maxed out the RAM and changed to an SSD. It cost a lot less than a Mac would have done.

Certainly, the combined cost of my two refurnished mac mini servers cost less than your single Sony VAIO laptop.

That and the really terrible keyboards.

Not the ones I use.

In addition, although I also use Windows a bit I prefer MacOS which also comes with a suit of free software, like iMovie, Pages, Numbers, GarageBand, although Windows is better now that it was.

Overall I consider Apple hardware good value but that may change.

There is nothing magical about Apple hardware.

You're right. It's not magical. It's simply hardware that has been well tested with each of the other components, to ensure they work as efficiently with each other as they can.

It's not magical, it's just business model that results in computers that work well for a long time.

Apple hardware lasts so much longer, so cheaper in the end. My mac's are 2010, and 2012, so 9 years and 7 years and still going with the original components except for the HDD's which I changed to SSD's. I also use a trackpad from 2007, 12 years and still using an iPad 3 from 2012, 6 years but probably will update that this year. Also a shiny new Xr iPhone from last year.

There is nothing magical about Apple hardware. The thing which most differentiates Apple hardware from the competition is that people love the brand so much they are happy to be overcharged.

That and the really terrible keyboards.

Apple hardware built to last; Apple software not supported as long

They should keep at doing what they do best; expensive toys only good for surfing the web.

They are not toys nor expensive.

I won't be using the streaming media, but then I don't use any streaming media.

Ha! There is no such thing as Apple vs Netflix. They can't compete against what Netflix has. They should keep at doing what they do best; expensive toys only good for surfing the web.

Apple vs Netflix:

Looks like Apple is out of ideas.  They should be spending money trying to bring Steve Jobs back to life.
