And what do you say to the folks that can't afford to spend £1200 on a laptop? Do we say "Sorry the world of internet and social media isn't for you!"?
I can afford such a device...but I still wouldn't spend that to look at the web, send email, buy stuff on Amazon, telling uninterested fake people about how 'amazing' but actually very dull our lives are and type up the odd invoice. Which in all honesty is pretty much what 95% of people do.
Is it really worth me spending £1200+ to do that? I don't think so.
Laptops whether Apple or not, are commodity items. Use em and abuse them. Thank god cheaper forms of computing exist other than Apple. Life would have been tough had we only had Macs to choose from all those years ago.
