  • Are Apple laptops worth it?

    Posted on September 1st, 2017 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    The laptop(Asus G752) below the original (first one) Macbook, costs 3 times more than the Macbook.
    (Yes I have a keyboard cover for the tick laptop too)

    • it’s speaker is very bad
    • it’s screen is very bad (suffers from backlight bleeding)
    • it’s touchpad is inconsistent and inefficient
    • it’s ports are not designed correctly, mouse will hit to headphone jack or other jacks.
    • Sluggish operating system. (Win 10 pro)
    • Noisy (Even while idle)
    • It has more ram, more disk space, better graphics card, fasters cpu

    I checked other models too, even at this price point, the first 4 points are not acceptable… Macbook and Macbook Pros definitely are worth it. In addition to this, my macbook pro from the year 2009 is still working perfectly and fast with the latest macOS and yes it is still way better than the fat laptop shown here for the above 4 things (speakers, screen, touchpad, ports). 2017-2009 = 8 years… In 8 years, how many laptops would one change? How much would it cost at total? One may need to upgrade or renew their laptop while my 8 years old macbook pro is still working really good. As you can see, I am not an Apple fan boi on the other hand, everything is very clear… For sure it still depends on what one wants to do with their laptop, if it can be done on both types of devices and if it costs around the same, go for the Apple one. Less noise, less crashes, better overall quality, support and price per life.

    Unless Apple starts creating laptops with pc equivalent graphics cards, I will (I have to) keep renewing my pc laptop time to time for some of my projects. (By the way, I play my games on consoles, not on PCs or Macbooks)

    I am not saying that people should always buy Macbooks (or Pros), it won’t make sense for some people. So it depends for sure. All I am saying is, the price for the Macbooks are not just for the brand itself, those products (when compared with other laptops as I have shown in this post) is normal and there is a reason for that. If you find a non-Apple laptop that has similar quality with Apple laptops, check the price, probably it will be very close to (cheaper or more expensive than) Apple ones.

  • Unite Europe 2017

    To be a certified developer, having coded things with Unity may not be enough, I recommend you to read the contents of the exam and refresh/improve your knowledge about Unity before applying.

    Yes, this is to prove that it has taken place in Netherlands. No they did not attend to Unity Conference.

    Orange juice before the keynote. It was free. (Well.. Perhaps included in the ticket price.)

    For the first time the Key Note took place in this theatre. It was a bit chaos when people were invited inside. So, for example the first people who were in the front of the queue somehow sit at the far back of the theatre. (At least they did sit, yes)

    Wireless networking

    Before the keynote..

    Personally, I believe that the last year’s Unite was way better for various reasons. The best thing this year was the quality of the food and the variety of food.

    Green Park

    Some fresh air right inside a crowded city. It works. This is why we need more green..

  • Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

    Posted on September 6th, 2016 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    I had the opportunity to see the Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.

    I cannot and will not give any details for sure. All I can say is it was a different experience.

    Tip: Try not to get a seat very close to the stage.
