I also hate Apple. I get that Apple has established an ecosystem, and I do like what they are doing with the really long support for every phone they release. My only problem is that they sell these devices at an outrageous cost.
My problem with MacBooks isn’t the choice of hardware, but mainly
1. The parts used on them have almost no way of repairing them
2. Butterfly Keyboard
3. Cooling. Apple uses inadequate cooling, sacrificing performance for thinness.
