Apple Cook's half-baked defense of the Mac Mini: This kit ain't a leftover

vaguearoundtheedges

Another bitch about Apple selling me a dead, non-upgradable MacMini.

Apple used to offer 'pro-rated' apps. But FinalCut is now far less popular than the cross-platform Adobe Premiere. And DaVinci Resolve, free for most users, is light years ahead.

My £700 Win10 gaming laptop, is a far more powerful video editor than a £2500 Mac. And has sockets I can plug things into.

Moving on to Aperture. Oh, Apple got rid of it, so it's cross-platform Lightroom now. And now there are some interesting Win alternatives coming along, like Luminar.

Everything now seems to run on PCs. I just wonder what the point of having an over-priced Mac is now? Again, said as a 20 year Mac enthusiast.

I have a digital kettle. Mine's either on or off.
