    Default I'm so fucking mad I'm about to order a Mac

    I sent my less than a year old piece of shit HP in to be repaired under warranty for the second time for the exact same issue. The keyboard wears out and the touchpad gets loose. There is a literally 2mm scratch on the screen so they won't repair it. I called them when I saw my status change to "out of warranty service charge of $348.74" I only paid $325 for the thing. My "escalations" case manager sent a request to get it repaired for free, under warranty. I called them back and it got denied. I had stern and harsh words with my Indian friend and his supervisor. I'm considering an email bomb of any executive I can find since you can literally get NO WHERE on the phone. I will never purchase a HP product again and advise you all to avoid HP at all costs.

    The one I have is basically a super netbook/cheap ultraportable. It uses an AMD APU processor so it's great for a cheap laptop and exactly what I want/need. It's just shitty build quality. I can deal with it being made cheap considering the price, but I'm just more than pissed off at the fact this is how they treat customers. I can't even talk to an American even though I was escalated 3 levels and argued for 30 mins.

    Ordering a Mac isn't going to make a difference, You know that. I mean christ all the parts are manufactured in Taiwan anyway. Figure this, you order your 1000 mac book air, get a mediocre system at an over priced value, and maybe get lucky because they have an obviously better QA team. Poor design isn't windows fault (even though it does have problems), save yourself money is all I'm saying.

    I was kidding, I hate Apple more than anyone on here.

    There is a certain piece of mind knowing that you can take an Apple product directly into the store and confront employees. I'm completely helpless in this situation

    I had an HP compaq NC6220 that was awesome, every other HP product I've seen/used was garbage and or turned to garbage in a relatively short time.

    I've had two HP motherboards crash on me. Now I buy Asus or Dell. Usually prefer the former for gaming, latter for office work

    Serviced HP lab computers for 4 years in a Meijer photo lab. They suck bawls. Go get yourself a Sager or an msi... You dont even have to buy the $1000+ ones to be happy with those. Or do the right thing and buy a mac.

    Buying a Mac was the best investment I have made. Its the best best of both worlds and they are extremely stable. You can set up a virtual machine running Wndows and have OSX running at the same time on the same screen. You cant do that on a HP. This Imac im on right I bought 4 years ago and shits still running like brand New, Just back it it up every 6 months and wipe the drives with 7 passes and these things last a good 10 years at least. Easy to upgrade also.

    I service HP laptops all the time red, if you want I can probably fix it for you for really cheap. Who held your warranty, or did you get it direct from HP?

    i dislike so much about apple but i do buy and use ipods, when i had a problem i had an amazing customer service experience over the phone and was pleasantly surprised.



    for PCs/Laptops I've always been a Gateway guy have had many in the past 15 years and have always had good experiences with them.. i know they aren't popular but back when it was Micron, Dell or Gateway I liked Gateway the most, since they've never done me wrong I've stuck with them

    His laptop probably cost 500, so $300 in applecare is not some feature I would go bragging about lol I mean honestly.

    There are tons of laptops out there for half the cost of a mac and they come in aluminum shells as well and are built to last. If you buy mac because you're too fuckin dumb to keep your computer running fine. I get it, I'm okay with that. But don't go telling me that Apple's boss as shit because they're giving you a great deal for 1200 bucks. They're robbing you. Plain and simple, if you don't KNOW they're robbing you okay live in your ignorance but they are straight reaching into your pocket and taking your damn money.

    I completely agree, buy what you can afford. MacBook is a great machine, but it will break on you, that's a guarantee. Applcare would have fixed his problem twice by now, or stick with a cheap machine and you got what you paid for.... that's all I'm sayin'

    i got a hp laptop for free off my homie, hp pavilion dv2000..old as shit but the nigga runs like a champ. sorry to hear about that shit.

    apple service techs aint no better than raj in calcutta though, when my 3Gs dropped service completely after like 6 months their only viable fix was "wait for your upgrade"

    so i upgraded to a windows7 htc titan and that shit is fuckin glorious

    LOL Applecare. So that costs an additional $300. My laptop was $325. You can get an extended warranty/additional coverage from most companies, so that's not really an argument for Apple being "better". Like I said, in my mind all Apple has going for them is the ability to go into a store and actually talk to someone, instead of on the phone to India. You can't even social Indians who don't fucking know or care what you're saying.

    I can fix this for less than $100 in parts, but I don't want to considering it SHOULD be covered. Fuck HP.

    and fuck Apple. I'll never own an Apple product unless they are priced competitively. The title was a joke guys.
