"Infuriating, irritating, computer throwing rage!"1.5 starson by OldGrumpy
Pros: Don't know yet. Not able to turn it on. They don't bother to send along an adapter which will hook up the Mac to an ordinary computer monitor.
Cons: Apple, as usual, has its own weird method of hooking up a computer to a monitor. This one is no different, except this time they don't bother to send along an adapter which will work. Instead, they send an adapter to hook it up to a TV set.
Summary: Apple continues to be the most user unfriendly company with which I have ever had the misfortune to attempt to work. It is no wonder that while it has the best computer operating system bar none it is also chugging along with 7 to 8 percent of the home computer market. Just for stunts like this. Thirty bucks for an adapter to get a standard computer monitor to attach to it; another 15 bucks for shipping, handling and taxes, and another week to wait for delivery. And for what -- just to gouge another thirty bucks out of their customers? Or to irritate, annoy and infuriate their customers by sending along an adapter to hook it up to a TV set, and not a monitor. I suppose that will work just fine for colleges students in crowded college dorm rooms, but very few others, I started out with an Apple IIc probably 30 years ago. I gave up on Apple when Microsoft copied enough of Apple to get away from having to use DOS commands when they introduced their Windows 95. And for these very reasons. They were shafting their customers from the start; there was some hope when Jobs left, and Apple began licensing other companies to produce computers. Motorola made a dandy -- StarMax -- twice as fast as the then fastest produced by Apple at half its price. Then Jobs came back, and put an end to licensing other companies, and Apple resumed sticking it to their customers. There must be a poster of an average Apple customer in their Board room somewhere, where the various officers and Board members take turns throwing darts at the representation of their customers as the target on their dart board, and laughing as their darts hit more sensitive parts of their customer's anatomy. They have to be the absolutely worst computer company with the most superior operating system that has ever graced the face of this earth. If you can tolerate being gouged, pay considerably more for their products, and an arm and a leg for software to run on their system, and put up with the childish "i" in front of everything like the average 12 year old girl as in (iTunes, iPhone, iPad, Ietc. ad infinitum) go for 'em. I for one have had ienough with iApple.
