Before you buy Apple - just one story
Amazon Customer "i did"
Macs For Dummies
"This list has generated a lot of negativity from Mac fans. All I can say is BRAND LOYALTY IS 4 DUMMIES! Let me tell you my story: I used to Love Apple and pestered my friends to buy their stuff."
Apple Mac OS X 10.4.6 Tiger (Mac)
"I loved them because the software and operating system were so much easier to use then windows PCs."
Apple iBook G4 - PPC G4 1 GHz - RAM 256 MB - HD 30 GB - CD-RW / DVD-ROM combo - MacOS X 10.3 - 12.1" TFT
"I had one of these which still looks lovely. But under the curves it was a cheap bit of kit. The latch and power adapter broke. Both the OS's it shipped were discontinued within 6 mnths. Hmm"
Apple I-MAC 20 Desktop PC
"I had one of these. The logic board had 2 be replaced twice in 3 years & the disc drive replaced once. Apple refused to replace it for 7 mnths. Google 4 lots of unhappy imac oweners, G4, G5 & intel."
Apple POWERBOOK G4-1.67Ghz Processor 512MB Memory 80GB Hard Drive Super Drive 15" Screeen Airport Xtreme
"I have one of these which over heats and the battery fails. The OS has been discontinued 2 yrs after release, locking me in to an upgrade if I want up to date software. XP works despite Vista."
Apple iPod 20GB with Click Wheel - 4th Generation [M9282B/A]
"I had one of these. It worked for 18 mnths. The click wheel failed, the head phone socket crackles and the head phones broke. £200+ seems a lot for 18 mnths of use. Can you see a pattern yet?"
iMac 20" Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz,1GB,250GB,SuperDrive
"Apple finally replaced my imac G5 with one of these. It was a battle to get them to do it. But credit to them, once they agreed they did it quickly. UPDATE the mic and idvd don't work properly!!!"
Mastering Customer Relations (Palgrave Master Series (Business))
"Something Apple need to read. My expirence of dealing with Apple's Customer Relations team has been terrible. Think of every bad call centre expirience you've had, coz they do them all!"
The Quality Revolution: Best Practice from the World's Leading Companies
"I recommend you google for a company that makes reliable hardware and fixes thing or replaces them when they go wrong."
Apple iPod touch 32GB
"No matter how cool this looks ."
Apple iPod nano 8GB black
"or how cheap Amazon sell this for ."
Apple iPod classic 80GB black
"or how great it would no doubt be to carry an 80 gig itunes library in my pocket "
The Rough Guide to the iPhone (Rough Guides Reference Titles)
"or how well advertised these are ."
Apple MacBook Air 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo/2GB/80GB
"or how cool people on trains look with the laptops; it's the same cheap components inside, and it's what's inside that cpounts. Rigth?"
Switching to a Mac For Dummies
"Whilst I'm grateful that my imac was finally replaced, it cost me £8 in phone calls & hrs & hrs of hassle. I'm sick of being treated like a dummie. So I won't buy Apple when I have a choice."
Thank You Whoever You Are [CD 1]
"Thanks for reading my list. I hope you have a better time with your computer and digital music player then I've had with mine."
The Google Story
"One final message for my critics: "GOOGLE APPLE FAULTS". I am not the only one. Please stop blindly supporting companies, they don't care about you."
Then Again, Maybe I Won't
"Edit: since making this list I helped somebody set up a Vista PC with a BT home hub....sheeeesh! Back to Apple for me I guess. Oh for a user friendly 3rd option!"
