I still got a shitload of money for a 1-core, pretty deprecated Macbook, when i sold it for a relative, and it was sold like an hour after i listed it on eBay. So, i'd say Cinebient surely has a point there. Macs definitely have a great resale value. Whether it makes sense to buy such a dated device, and pay so much for it, is another thing.
Yes they seem to do better than PCs. Since the prices are so high to begin with, however, the loss in absolute terms is probably the same or higher after a couple of years.
But (at least for me) i get an awesome customer service from Apple if i have trouble or a faulty device, wherever i bought it.
With some other brands it is a nightmare and asking for support or easy replace of a device is very annoying.
At least my experience.
Depends on where you buy, i guess... i rarely had bigger issues replacing, or having something in my computers repaired. I once had the case that the company where i bought the PC couldn't replicate the issue, because i had blue screens, or black screens every 4 months when starting the PC, and, of course, those didn't appear in the 2 weeks they had the computer.
Apart from that, no problem really. Especially the bigger stores like Amazon are very accomodating and quick to handle warranty and support. And the many smaller issues you can usually solve with a Google search.
No offense, but, i guess i'd be a little pissed off anyway, if i paid Apple prices, and wouldn't get good support then. Recently ordered a Macbook for a relative BTW. And shaked my head in disbelief about... 300 € for 128 GB additional SSD disk space.
Seriously, that's quite hard to take, but, it's not my money in the end.
