I’m watching WWDC right now with Apple on my mind. Apple has built some amazing devices and a sterling reputation. It’s mostly deserved, but there are exceptions and unfortunately my start-up is living one of them.
In the last three years, we’ve purchased two iMacs and four MacBook Pros. Guess how many of them had device-breaking hardware failures?
One iMac, which thankfully occurred early enough that we got it exchanged.
Two of the four MacBook Pros. One just died today, thus this post, and the third is apparently on its last legs.
That’s 3 out of 6 Apple computers.
That’s a 50% failure rate.
