thank you for your links, it was nice of you to post them.
question - Why are macbooks considered super good?


From what I can tell, they are considered "super good" simply because there are practically no viruses, malware or anything like that for Mac. So you don't really need any security, like you'd do on a regular computer.


One of the few drawbacks (as far as I can tell) is:

- Only one producer (compared to laptops, which got a bigger pick of laptops and more variation)
- Seems a bit overpriced
- Overrated by "people" on the internet (I'm not saying it is bad, just saying that I feel it is overrated)
- Forced updates (from what I've heard - don't take this for true unless you have it confirmed)
