Conversation has no credibility whatsoever anymore
We switched from tech to "magic". (as far as same silicon, at same speeds being vastly faster under the same OS, that's what I call it)

I don't get what you say here...
I live in CA, I have family and colleagues I worked with on a daily basis using Macs...the fact that I don't "own" a MBP, doesn't make me an "outsider". I can easily claim that I have worked on and around 2008-2012 MBPs stressing them more than the vast majority of MBP owners (heavy photoshop, AI, ID C4D & as far as sketchup can go in OSX, sketchup, revit, ACAD, 3DS and occasionally Adobe stuff on windows).
Our personal experiences say little when statistical data disprove them.
I had far more MBPs die around me than PC laptops. That was simply because MORE people were using MBPs where I was at. Did not say "MBPs are crap", just said that MBPs die just like any other laptop, and independent statistics - at least concurrent with my "pre-rMBP" era reinforce this notion.Edited by pcfoo - 11/7/13 at 4:44pm
