Well, I have my valid reasons.
-Their products (in general) are overpriced compared to the competition. You can get much more performance for much lower prices. They're also typically "behind" compared to the competition. I mean, here comes the 3GS, where everyone was hoping for 4G support, without 4G. Then comes the iPhone 4; still no 4G. OH MY GAH! iPhone 5 announcement tomorrow! I can't wait!!! 4S?! No 4G? (true 4G I mean) What the hell?! The iPhone is just NOW matching the typical 14.4mbps speeds the 2011 average phone has, and we're already seeing jumps to much higher speeds months later from the competition.
-Their products are annoyingly "trendy," to the point where everyone thinks they're amazing solely based on that. I personally feel the aluminum look on their desktops and laptops to be plain bland, and their cooling efficiency is horrible. I should also add that because of this, the "typical" (I'm not trying to seem elitist here, it's the trust) Apple product owner doesn't know squat about hardware/performance, yet they have the courage to make the claim that their Apple laptop/phone is the best money can buy, just because everyone they know has or wants one and says the same.
These people that claim such fallacies are speaking out of experience with ~$400 retail HP/Compaq/Dell/Gateway PCs, which is a fail in and of itself.
-Apple as a company has done so many things that only lower my negative views against them even lower, with the ridiculous lawsuits and whatnot, and Steve Jobs's attitude was annoying, to say the least. Their marketing is rather deceptive, claiming things such as being virus-free and "faster."Edited by Stealth Pyros - 10/21/11 at 12:47pm
