Look at this thread :

http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/2444065/+0&#entry53340695

Rm5000 to change a laptop that costs Rm3500. I could have bought 3 new laptops for that price. I can understand paying a premium for service quality or product quality, but paying a premium to have the USB port short out and then being given the runaround by Apple's auhtorised service staff? how does that justify the premium? tongue.gif

You have no proof of that.. how can bad service be an isolated case, you mean they didn't like his face, or something lol. I mean for this kind of money there should not be any isolated cases smile.gif

Let me give you an example. I have my money in a bank. They pay 2.95% pa. That's low, because there are other banks that pay 3.2% pa. But I still have my FDs there.. because

(1) Their ATM is literally never down

(2) Their airconditioning is always cold, even in the hottest days

(3) The floor is carpeted, the carpet is clean and not worn.

(4) The ATM is clean (especially the keys.)

(5) When I forgot my ATM card and it was swallowed by the ATM, they opened it on the spot, retrieved my card and gave it back to me.

(6) They have hardware authenticators

(7) I can do everything online, and it always works. I have never seen their site slow or down ever.

See.. that's why I'm willing to "pay" 0.3% to keep my money there, that's what "premium" means, there should be no isolated cases ever, and the service should be top-notch, always.

Premium means there is no excuse for failure. That's why you pay that price.

If there are "isolated cases", well every company has "isolated cases", why are you still paying premium price for shoddy laptops and service? tongue.gif

u can pay half a million for a BMW but you still have chance to get a defect unit. There is no 100% flawless manufacturing. But yeah bad service sucks

lol the myth that macbook rosak is expensive to repair

its not expensive la, same like others, but after warranty if u send to apple is stupid lar, go 3rd party cheaper, same price as other laptop parts

but for me i used 3 macbooks until today, 1st macbook white back in 2009 then macbook pro and currently using macbook air 13", never rosak and i get to sold them at reasonable price too,

Consider the material cost of the laptop, and then consider the price. The difference is the premium. Divide that by number of years, and you will find out how much you are paying per year for the service you are not getting smile.gif

Main reason to use a mac

- it is more expensive, hence more prestigeous
- Apple has higher profit margins, hence Apple is better
- it has less lag. because none of the games work with it.

Your argument is invalid because every manufacturer will have defects


If that is the case then you might as well buy the cheapest models of everything, why buy a million-ringgit car and then have to return it because it's got a problem, and then for their technicians to tell you it costs Rm5 million to fix? smile.gif

Rm5000 to change a laptop that costs Rm3500. I could have bought 3 new laptops for that price. I can understand paying a premium for service quality or product quality, but paying a premium to have the USB port short out and then being given the runaround by Apple's auhtorised service staff? how does that justify the premium? tongue.gif

all fag that say ppl buy apple notebook because of gaya are double fag themselves.

i have more than a dozen friends in graphic design...and all go for apple even before there is ipong 3....like easily 12 yrs back. and they choose apple over windows back then not because of gaya..

only graphic designer knows the value of apple notebook..and those around them.

everything else u hear is 2nd hand opinion..

Well Mac expensive to repair cos the parts all get from Apple what to do? If you guys do some simple googling, turns out MBP is super hard to repair.. Hence the giant pricetag.. Also got pipur say that Macs kenot simply use any hardware to repair, deswai again pricier

Meanwhile, how many people uses and sells a Windows laptop/ultrabook?? The amount of seller needs to have adequate number of repair service providers too.. Hence the more availability of parts for repair

actually macbooks hardware nowadays can be fitted with any hardware it does not need to be specific except the screen.
but your paying for the service(harder OS reconfiguration) also + branding. and most the time when someone macbook crashes its either ram/screen issue my fren work at apple store always noticed this

Hmm..my friends still uses apple....and it is not because of software only, but color on monitor screen vs actual print out.

It's built for designer's

You'll notice windows will print differently from what you have edit in the photoshop / illustrator.

This is because Windows do not have a standardize colour scheme and very dependable on the monitor too.

For apple, as everything is built under apple's core, the colour is the exact same with the output of printing.

Thus it's for designer

My unkle has a ferrari but he never drove above 180kmph.
Ppl buy things for different reason...some to use. Some to appreciate. Many others coz its simply affordable to them.

U can go buy a 1.5k armani suit and wear it once a year on special function no one gonna ask u to wear daily since so expensiv. So why u butthurt?

Fortunate for you to have that 50% of moolah

If a macbook 13 inch cost Rm3399
After 5 years i sell it about rm1500 still got buyer......

Because apple new mac will cost at least Rm3.2k^
Can use the other half amount of money to buy a decent 15inch laptop from dell brows.gif

Plus unlike windows ios are not easy to succumb to malware,trojan

Same reasons iphones
