I finally transitioned to the dark side. (Apple)

You got the rMBP then TC, good choice, one of the best laptops ever made.
I recently got my wife an Acer S7 13", 2 SSDs in raid 0, IPS 1080p screen, touch screen, extremely thin and light, but the scaling in Windows 8 is so bad when the screen is small, and the touchpad is years behind Apple's equivalent.

Perhaps I should join the dark side too? I got absolutely no need for one. Windows covers everything I use anyway.:p

Am I a hipster?

Nope. Apple became mainstream in the late 00's and I've seen plenty of programmers use MBP's.

Although, I'm sure programming feels nice when you're doing it on a pretty little computer.

Yes indeed. Welcome new apple head.


I have both an imac and a PC.

My pc is for gaming only. Thats what its best for.

I use my mac for music creation/graphic design/surfing.

Love both for what they do.

But I went a bit apple cray cray when I first got the mac. I swear to god I was trying to convert everyone. It is a bit culty.


Apple "cray cray"?? Damn! That's the dumbest term I've ever heard. I don't see how anyone would ever wan't to use it.


Still nowhere near as dumb as phablet
