Solid hardware, good engineering, industrial design, cold hearted, confining and always tracking where you go, who you talk to and you can't turn it off. I agree great hardware, and maybe not iCrap, but iBully done by iJobs.
I love my MacBook Air and my classic ipod, but I sold off all other apple hardware including their poorly made displays (OEM by Toshiba but their name is on them and they designed them), sold my iTouch, limited and controlled and sold our iPhone's AT&T was the big reason there and Apple didn't help much.
I was never considered a Fanboy for Apple, but I felt good about saying their hardware is top notch. To me personally I have seen the cracks in the facade, the tarnish on the silver and worst yet the controlling nature of MY PRODUCTS, I purchased them, I own them, I can do as I please with them. Once Apple/Jobs took their new path over the last year I really decided enough was enough.
My MBA is great for me, but I won't be buying any new apple hardware, give it to me for free, sure, but I won't spend MY money.
