By and large, I have loved my three year old MacBook Pro. Except for when I hated it. Here are seven things I hate about my Mac:
- I can't increase the hard drive space and I have run out of Gs.
- The stupid CD-DVD disc drive doesn't have the nice little PC button to open it and get rid of the disc. I've wasted all kinds of time trying to get the stupid thing to eject.
- My lovely MacBook Pro wiped out 5000 photos last spring, never to be retrieved, even with expert help.
- My ignorant MacBook Pro glitched about 20,000 Aperture photos with red blotches and I got zero sympathy from the Apple Care *(Care?) people. Eventually the blotches went away, but I still don't trust it not to return.
- Apple invented something called Parallels which supposedly was supposed to run Windows along with Apple programs, but I never thought it worked well enough to use, and I didn't have enough hard drive space anyway.
- Apple wasn't about to install drivers for my Canon 7550 printer, which was only a couple of years old.
- The MacBook Pro is way too expensive for the features you get.
- The whirling colored beach ball of death, which goes around, and around, and around whenever the computer gets constipated or doesn't like what you told it to do. Stuff freezes up way too often.
- The idea that the 5% of the computer using population that uses Macs is somehow superior to the 95% of the clods using PCs. Am I missing something here?
