Re: Not just hipsters I'm afraid

Lots of older people are now using MacBooks. Many in my Camera Club have moved from Windows and never looked back. These are not techy people but just got really pissed off with Microsoft.

Go into any Non City Centre/Town Centre Starbucks/Costa/etc these days and do a random survey. I did that very thing yesterday at the Starbucks at Hickstead on the A23 sarf of London. there were 6 laptops in use at the time I stopped by. 5 were Apple devices and one Dell, and the age range of the users surprised me. Two of the MacBooks were being used by people well older than me and I'm 60 ish.

If Tim Cook wants rid of MacBooks then he will piss off an awful lot more than the Hipster brigade.
