Are Apple products that good?
This post has been removed.
The saying, "it just works" is true. Apple usually isn't the first one to make a device in a field, (iPod, iPhone, iPad) but they tend to make the first one worth buying or the object of desire once it's announced. I had a Samsung Blackjack with the iPhone was announced. My Blackjack worked fine, but finding games and apps was a chore. The phone would constantly crash during surfing sessions, whereas my friend's iPhone was reliable.
Their marketing is the best, which sounds like a bad reason to buy their products, but it makes it easier to re-sell those devices when you want to upgrade so they hold their value longer. Also, buying accessories is easier with Apple products than competitors.
The dongles and software purchasing can get annoying, but a minimalist design is appreciated over a clusterfuck of garbage throw into a product.
I think over the last couple years they have been faltering a little bit, and the new maps app is an example but then you look at the phone itself and its arguably one the most gorgeous phones out there.
On the PC side I think the Retina MacBook Pro is one of the nicest machines out there and that can also be said the iMac.
I would say that the combination of build quality & good software are what set them apart. It is very rare to pick up an apple product and think it’s cheap.
Something else about the Apple products is that they hold their value better than most others out there.
