I'm gonna say something about this, only apple product I own is a macbook, so can't speak for the phones/ipods/ipads etc
But the build quality on the macbook is the same as any other laptop, the only thing that sets it apart from most is the trackpad..
...but the mag-safe chargers are terrible. I am on my third one, my brother is like on his 5th. They have a relatively high failure rate if you google the problem. Alot of the people defending the product gave responses like 'you shouldn't always leave it plugged in', 'you shouldnt transport it so much'
Turns out if you leave it plugged in, the wire inside can melt...
And if you transport it often the wire gets kinked and breaks
My 10$ charger for my old 2000 laptop, I can practically do anything to it, and it wont break.
I read that Apple has produced different revisions of the charger now, with thicker wire or w/e, but a charger should never overheat from just being plugged in to long. And its a laptop, its made for transportation, make a charger that can withstand transportation! Apple's price really did not justify the terrible quality of their chargers. But hey, its white and compact! And the charger is pretty important, without it my macbook is useless.
Price =/= Quality (at least for the chargers)Edited by .:hybrid:. - 10/4/11 at 2:45pm
