Yeah, right. Just last night at a work meeting my manager could not get her $3000 mac laptop to connect to the office apple TV. Everything was hooked up properly. Ended up having to hardwire it, finding out that macs do not have the same AV port and that my manager had to buy another $50 converter so her apple computer could work with her apple TV.

Then the computer couldn't play sound. Myself, and two other computer literate people a look at it and quickly discovered we couldn't fix it. Why? Because the "options" are a joke, so whenever you have a problem with your mac, instead of fixing it yourself, you have to take it to their certified "apple geniuses."

Total wasted time - About 45 minutes to an hour.
Solution - Used the area manager's 5 year old PC (without the $50 extra AV hookup). Worked perfectly immediately.

And don't forget that part about certain (if not all) Macbooks being bulit to be NOT MODIFIED at all, due to the fact that what holds the damn things together is extremely sturdy superglue. It's that kind of glue that will never stick back if you actually need to take the thing apart, meaning that it's fucking broken. The only way it will, is by heating the glue up. So instead of using a screwdriver, you need a damn hairdryer and 30 mins of waiting. APPLE. IS. GARBAGE.
