    how come surface devices don't dent? it's the amount of metal that's suspect. To keep them thin and light, apple has reduced the structural ridigity of their devices in favor of form. The wrong way to do it imo. I would rather have a stronger, little bit heavier and thicker device, instead of a thinner, fragile peice of crap.

    I have yet to see them, I have seen many scratched ones, never a dented one. I have, however seen hundreds of dented macbook models. Back in my silly days of moving to apple for the 2nd time, I searched high and low for a quality macbook pro. EVERY one I went to see was dented on the lid and corner. Hell, I looked at another 27" cinema monitor and it was dented. Obviously their mix of aluminum is weak, or they are going for form over function. pick one.

    They will quote ~1000$ for keyboard fix and force migrate people to use latest locked down macs.

    It seems **** design gets you ****** product that becomes crappier even after multiple attempts at repairing to end up with a crap product.
    How Apple manages to sell garbage for $5000+ with refurb quality hardware?

    Agreed. Apple as reached levels of loyalty that rival religion. They actually make people think they are using a product wrong rather than there being a design flaw
