About a year ago I’ve probably been one of the biggest Windows/Microsoft fanboys out there buying almost every device they released, ranging from their flagship phone Lumia 950 XL to their fitness tracker Microsoft Band 2. I even went through the trouble to order some of those things from other countries since they didn’t offer every item in the german Microsoft store.You might wonder how I ended up writing this post on an Apple MacBook Pro instead of a Microsoft Surface or any other Windows Laptop for that matter…
Well if I’d had to put a name to it I’d say I’ve just had enough of all the bugs and issues and most of all I just couldn’t stand it anymore. Every time you get some new software or buy new hardware as a pre-order item it surprises you with bugs and issues. For example, when I received my 700 bucks Lumia 950 XL I had to hard-reset it three times in order to get it to run the initial setup properly. And that’s just one example of my bad luck with Windows 10 devices.
So I decided to give Apple a shot and bought an iPad 4 Mini and I’ve to say I’m still impressed. I’m not using it as much as I did in the beginning, probably because I’ve got more Apple devices to choose from by now, but I’m still more than happy and can’t recall any bugs or issues at all.
I’ve been using it to read mails, listen to music, surf the web and many other things and all of those things just felt the way they are supposed to … easy and flawless. Compared to using my Windows devices with all their flaws I just don’t want to miss my iPad anymore.
Well and over the cause of the last couple of months I decided to give more and more Apple devices a shot until I finally even bought a MacBook Pro to replace my ASUS RoG Laptop and so far even that transition was quite easy. I never would’ve thought that switching from one mayor OS to another could be so easy but it really is.
To sum it in my opinion one of the biggest issues nowadays is that we as customers just accept the fact that we get faulty hard- and software as reward for pre-ordering and trusting developers out there. In addition most people are just not willing to spent a few bucks more in order to get something that’s actually worth the money. I know a lot of people are going to hate me for this post and disagree, which is your good right, and even I consider Apple devices slightly overpriced but at least they work without me spending hours on Google to find solutions to silly problems like when all of the UWP apps suddenly stop working.
I’d love to read some comments below from people who also gave multiple systems a try.
