Everything that’s wrong with the computers and laptops that Apple sells
There’s a lot to love about Apple’s computers.
Primarily, macOS is the main draw. It’s a sleek, clean, and simple-yet-complex operating system that gets a lot right compared to the more complicated Windows 10.
Yet, while they exude a sense of perfection, Apple’s computers aren’t always the best choice. There are several questionable aspects about MacBook laptops and Mac desktops. At least for me, Apple’s computers are actually shifting the spotlight toward Windows computers because of those questionable and often frustrating facets.
Check out everything that’s wrong with Apple’s computers:
They cost a lot more than Windows computers.
Apple computers are generally more expensive than their Windows counterparts, even those that come with the same specs.
Take the $1,500 Huawei MateBook X Pro with a Core i7, and 16GB of RAM, and a 14-inch display that’s sharper than those on MacBook Pros. To go the Apple route, you need to spend $1,000 more on a 13-inch MacBook Pro with the same specs.
Many refer to this unofficially as the “Apple tax.”
Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pros don’t come with dedicated graphics chips.

None of Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pros come with a dedicated graphics chip, which would be great for professionals who want a compact 13-inch laptop that could handle visual-hungry tasks that benefit from a chip devoted entirely to graphics.
If a professional — or anyone — wants an Apple laptop with a dedicated graphics chip, they’d have to compromise and get a 15-inch model.
All of Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pros come with dedicated graphics chips, even if you don’t want them. And you pay for them.
All 15-inch MacBook Pros come with a dedicated graphics chip, which not everyone needs, but everyone pays for regardless. And graphics chips tend to be expensive. There’s no option to buy a 15-inch MacBook Pro without a dedicated graphics chip.
As a compromise, you’d have to get a 13-inch MacBook Pro to avoid paying for a dedicated graphics chip that you don’t need or want to pay for.
