  • As a tech reviewer

  • I think one of the more important things I have to do is to remain impartial, not just to try different brands and try different

  • products and stuff like that

  • but also to try to look at products and

  • try to respect what the companies tried to do when they developed it. Like, no company is out there trying to make bad products.

  • They're trying to make good stuff, but invariably there are bad products and right now

  • Apple's product line up, particularly their computing products, is really pissing me off

  • Just as a bit of a back story before I started youtube, I was an avid Apple user

  • I wasn't like an Apple fanboy or anything like that. I had a MacBook Air, I had an iPhone

  • I wasn't hard to the core, but I enjoyed the Apple ecosystem

  • But as I started making YouTube videos, I realized that I had to try things that I didn't prefer

  • I had to try Android phones. I had to try Windows PCs

  • I had to just use stuff that I didn't prefer using

  • Just so I could actually have a better grasp of what was going on in the industry and as my channel grew I was exposed

  • to more and more devices

  • I saw more computers more phones and a lot of the reasons that I enjoyed the Apple products were kind of

  • Verified by looking at other brands. Like I enjoyed the build quality of Apple products and even to this day

  • I still think Apple has the best built laptops in the world right now. No one beats them

  • They are literally the best built laptops

  • but then you look at the inside and you look at the internals and the specs and all the nitty-gritty stuff and you look at

  • how the industry has kind of shaped over the course of 2018 and you see how Apple has done their stuff over 2018 it just

  • Grinds my gears

  • I'm gonna take a look at the MacBook Pros first: the 13 inch and the 15 inch and these are both the 2017 models

  • They're both running these seventh gen Intel processors. The 13-inch one is running a "U" processor

  • It's a weaker version and the 15-inch model is running a "H" processor, which is a stronger version

  • But both of them are basically the strongest MacBook Pros that Apple sells right now

  • The problem is that the entire industry has shifted over to the 8th

  • Gen CPUs, and they are so much faster than the seventh gen CPUs

  • Now a lot of the stuff that I deal with is more processor intensive like video editing and stuff is not something that's light

  • So I understand that this won't affect most people but like the entire industry has shifted over to 8th

  • gen CPS since like November of 2017

  • So in November of last year

  • They could have upgraded the 13-inch model they didn't but they could have and in April of this year

  • They could have upgraded the 15 inch model because that's when basically all the Windows laptops out

  • There were refreshing their devices to the 8th. Gen CPUs

  • these guys haven't done it and it's

  • Punishing to the user base if you're an Adobe user and you're looking to buy a new computer and you're looking at a MacBook Pro

  • You're wrong. That's the wrong device

  • You need to be buying a Windows laptop right now because the difference in performance between a 7th gen and an 8th gen CPU

  • It's so big and the entire user base is getting screwed

  • And then you take a look at the stuff like the drives being soldered on and being forced to purchase the touch bar

  • Which most people don't find all that useful

  • It's just more stuff that Apple does that feels really aggressive for no

  • Particular reason and I like Mac OS. I actually prefer using Mac OS much more than I prefer using Windows

  • But if I'm using their hardware right now, I'm forced to use dated hardware that feels significantly slower than Windows hardware.

  • Now, I also want to take a look at the iMac pros. These are devices that are really powerful

  • They're expensive, but they're really powerful

  • The thing is you're forced once again to purchase a whole bunch of stuff that you may not need like

  • ECC memory and xeon processors and a 5k panel, like they're all really good things

  • Well, some of it is. They're all good

  • But a lot of people don't need it

  • But they're forced to purchase it because they want that higher core count and here's the thing

  • A lot of people don't even understand that the iMac Pro like the 8 core like the base model the 8 core iMac Pro

  • Is actually slower than a 6 core laptop in Adobe Premiere

  • So one of those new Windows laptops will render a video faster than the $5,000 machine that looks really beautiful

  • But isn't a good fit for most people who are actually considering it

  • If you look at the iMac like the regular iMac

  • They're actually in a weird spot if they upgrade the iMac to the 8th gen CPUs

  • Like the rest of the industry has, it'll be a lot cheaper than an iMac Pro, but the performance will be really similar

  • So, I don't know how Apple's gonna handle that

  • I think if they come out with that new iMac it's gonna cannibalize the sales of their iMac pros

  • Ok, the entire computer lineup right now though feels overpriced, under-powered

  • More so than the average Apple kind of price premium that we're used to paying

  • because of that huge gap in performance from the 7th and the 8th Gen CPUs, okay

  • iPhones, I recently dropped my iPhone 10

  • It was in a case and it was off a very normal coffee table got bumped off the edge maybe like 18

  • 24 inches at most and it cracked hard and here's the thing. This is a thousand dollar phone. I didn't get AppleCare on it

  • I kind of regret it, but it was a thousand dollar phone

  • I'm not gonna pay an extra two hundred dollars like that becomes a

  • $1,200 phone and when I tried to repair it

  • I was told that this is considered an out of warranty repair because it's accidental damage and it's

  • 550 US dollars to repair that back panel. In their defense not really defense

  • but the reason is that

  • They have to replace the entire

  • Back and internals of the phone not the front glass and the whatever but the internals have to all be swapped

  • Including the back panel, and that's why it costs so much

  • That is crazy for that money for

  • $550 you can buy a brand new one plus 6 and have 20 dollars to spare

  • So I think for most people common sense would dictate that this is not worth a $550 repair bill

  • It's fully functional. It's just ugly a sin. I probably put a skin on this or something and call it a day

  • ok, the bottom line is this Apple's entire lineup right now, well their computing lineup and the price of their phone repairs is just

  • It's crazy right now. I feel like the customers are getting screwed left right and center and

  • This is the world we live in. OK, hope you guys enjoyed this video. Thumbs if you liked it, subs if you loved it
