You know how I shelled out 3.3K for a new MacBook Pro in May? Well it was money wasted. WASTED.
Because Apple rolled out a terrible operating system–Lion. This cannot handle having 6 windows open at the same time. WHAT? My-5-year-old MacBook Pro had no issues. It could even run Time Machine at the same time. But this “NEW” and “IMPROVED” operating system freezes up constantly.
And by freezes up I mean every application and the entire operating system freezes so that I cannot even force quit. I am given the spinning rainbow pie of death. Then I have to do a hard reboot pushing the on/off switch.
I’ve spent hours on the phone with Apple Care. Guess what? They don’t. They rolled out an operating system that doesn’t operate. It inhibits operation.
As a novel writer, I’ve lost 5k worth of drafting in the past two weeks because when the operating system freezes and I hard reboot–I LOSE ALL MY WORK.
So I have a laptop that is inferior to the one I had in 2007. WTF.
And here is the brilliant advice of Apple Care. You must quit each window when you are done using it. DON’T ATTEMPT TO HAVE MULTIPLE WINDOWS OPEN.
Great, I have a freaking $3.3k typewriter.
So I can’t allow Time Machine to run during the day because that takes up lots of memory when it starts up. I can only run that at night. And if I want to run Excel and Windows at the same time, well, may the force be with me.
Oh it gets better. I was advised not to have Itunes on while working because that takes up lots of RAM. And my Mac Dictate software–that’a a RAM gobbler too. Um no. Lion is the problem. With all my apps quitted, Lion eats up 4GB of RAM. I only have 8 GB and I paid extra to have that. WTH Apple?! You are Rotten to the core.
If you don’t believe me, google Apple+Lion+Sucks and see what those 5.4 million hits have to say.
Shame on you Apple. It’s like having a PC with an Apple pricetag.
I’m so disappointed. I wish I’d never bought this new laptop because it’s a piece of crap. Thanks Apple for your rotten overpriced garbage. I’m going to go start hitting garage sales and see if I can find a typewriter. At least it would be more stable than your schizophrenic Lion operating system.
