Poor cooling, constant overheating, fragile screens, lack of useful ports like HDMI and USB 3, need multiple $30 adapters to connect all your peripherals, etc.
Look, money is not a problem. Productivity and workspace is an issue on Windows. I prefer Mac OS X when it comes to design and production. + iOS app developer = making money.
Windows is not capable or fast enough to do that (user inferfaces and experiences). I've been working between Windows and Mac for more than 15 years.
+ I'm not sure what fragile screen. I have a custom anti-glare screen without glass on it.
This is why everytime I see people rant on other products AKA lack of knowledge + they never had experienced with them long enough before making such statement that target people who own Apple product say the are fan or something.
I can talk all day long about between OS, I see both side has flaws and goods. You can talk about applications, programmer, art works, networking, repair, etc etc all day. I have every single reason and solutions. Simply mastered at both.
