This is a very reliable computer and I have had it since 2012. They only criticism I have is that Apple could make an effort to make it equipment a little less complicated and user friendly. Geeks love their products because they like figuring everything out all the time but if you are like me, it would be nice just to be able to get the computer to do what you want without a lot of research.
I love my Mac Desktop for MULTIPLE reasons, many more of which will come up the more I use my computer. But, if I were to narrow the love of my Mac down to three points they are simply 1- I feel I can do ANYTHING with my Mac. Across the board, whatever comes to mind, if I want to do it, my Mac has a feature to aid me in accomplishing my goal. 2- My Mac very rarely encounters trouble/bugs/attacks etc reducing my stress/frustration levels, immensely. 3- if and or when I run into difficulty i.e. I want to do something with my Mac and I don't know how or it has a faulty software (which so far has been a result of something I downloaded) Mac CUSTOMER SERVICE is phenomenal - PHENOMENAL! They will hold my hand and stay on the phone with me for as long as I want. They pleasantly receive my calls regardless the number of times I call them. This incredible support, alone, makes Mac the best computer to own in my book.

Wore out my MacBook Pro between school and work; then the OS upgrade made my MS Office software unusable. Since I had to buy new MS Office anyway, I elected to trade in an old iPad mini and my Pro. Trade-in process was easy, and I got a bit off of the Air. Unfortunately there were two core-system problems with the unit, but Tech Support spent HOURS on the phone helping me through it. The unit has functioned flawlessly since then. When I used PCs, they were often back at the manufacturer for repair. Not so the Mac products. I got the Pro when I was going through a Master's program, and have never looked back.
I like the Apple MacBook line especially MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air with the 13" screens. Both have been great laptops to use for home and business applications. The added features of the MacBook Pro for the screen resolution, the 8 core CPU and unified RAM choices up to 16GB. The touch bar is another good feature for quick access to changes and updating my choices. I think the one I like most is the aluminum body. It gives a great quality look and for me the durability as well. Overall a MacBook is a great choice!
I have an Apple 27" display IMAC. The system works great and I am able to have multiple windows open simultaneously. It is very fast and dependable. I have only had it slow down maybe a half dozen times in three years. Of course that was when I had a lot of things open at a time or it an unrecognized option. IBM PC is way too slow for everyday processing. Apple isn't the best for gaming graphics, but it saves hours of waiting for business programs and apps.
After years of being a happy Apple customer, my latest experience has left me with a new perspective. Electric shocks from the mouse pad, sticky keys, the camera stopped working and less than average picture quality. When I contact Mac support they offer solutions that don't work but require me to close down the computer, which means when I restart I have to contact them again and go through the whole process. Probably 50 hours plus trying to remedy these issues.
This laptop is worthless. The main reason: when you connect the laptop to your iCloud, it pulls all of your photos/videos and stores them on the hard drive, which is already tiny. I bought an external hard drive for storing items not going to my iCloud. My plan was to keep the hard drive empty. APPS also take up much more space on the hard drive than they do on an iPad or iPhone. You can have about a dozen apps before the hard drive is full. So who cares if the hard drive is full? Well you can't update the software when there isn't enough space; meaning, you can't complete any processes with other devices without current software. The machine is useless. For the price, you can get a great PC (any brand) that's more reliable and easier to maintain.
One year new MacbookPro and the battery is puffy to the point that the mouse pad doesn’t click anymore and the belly makes it wobbly when you type. Called support. They told me to bring my laptop to a 1 hour away Apple store that they would have changed my battery there. So I got an appointment, drove there, waited 20 minutes in line, to be told that they have to keep the computer in store for 3 to 5 days and they would give me a call when ready. Are you kidding me??? How am I supposed to work without it. I got an Apple because they were reliable, but now Apple has become a brand to avoid. Right?!
I will NEVER - EVER buy an Apple (mac book - phone, etc) product, unless they come up with a solution for this production's fault. My screen macbook pro 2017 has horizontal lines as well. It is a production fault. Apple wont repair... (they repair the same problem on 2016 model but wont extend to 2017...) I always thought apple were professional and knew what they were building. It turns out RUBISH PRODUCT followed by AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE that wont recognise their mistake....Buy apple they told me, they make great products they told me, it's great company they told me. I now make sure all people I know hear about how apple is treating customers like! NEVER AGAIN! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Lawsuit..? Count me in!
Much to my disappointment, my 2019 MacBook Air, which was moderately used and in very good condition, completely shut down this December, after less than a year and a half after its purchase. I had to pay Apple a 500 dollar fee (half the price of the computer) to have it restored, and was given little information about what the cause of this issue might be, given that the shut down seemed to be of no fault of my own. I've been a loyal customer to Apple for the last ten years because I've always been greatly impressed with the service and quality and durability of the products, but given this issue, I will think twice about making my next purchase with Apple. I own a ten year old HP laptop that was half the price of the MacBook and has never had issues.
