Are you saying this because you had a 5c? Or are you just an Apple hater?

Especially since my Galaxy phones all feel 10x cheaper than the 5c.

I can say that Apple knows how to do plastic shells, as my Macbook took repeated drops and four five of college backpack abuse and still works/functions just fine to this day.

My PC laptops would literally fall apart after a year of use, as i am really hard on them. After that, i purchased a MacBook Pro, Apple does cost more but it's for a reason. Just like my BMW, I definitely paid more but they just "take care" of anything that comes up with it.

So my PC went down a flight of steps and fell into a full bath tub and survived. Could it be incidental? I like to think so.

Apple DOES cost more for a reason, that reason just so happens to be "Because we can". My Toshiba laptop has an AMD A10 Quad Core CPU, 6GB DDR4 Ram, 1GB GDDR5 GPU, 17" LED Screen, and a 1TB Harddrive....cost me a whopping $650. Comporable Mac is at least $1000-1200. Why? Because Apple "Does Plastic Better?"

I smell a fanboy...

Really, Apple "Does Plastic Better"? Eh?

I strongly agree with you, Kenz, fanboy indeed.

The problem with that is most likely when you purchased your PC laptop you purchased a crappy one. I purchased a crappy PC laptop once. Then purchased a really good one, still half the price of a Macbook and it still working after nearly 5 years of college student use and very little "taking care of it" on my part.

macbooks are great for design students and not really tech savvy individuals. I prefer PC over Mac I am a architectural engineering student. I hate Mac interface so much I refuse to use it at school. Personally I feel it is overpriced for what it is.

I feel the same way about iPhones... I dont like them, very limited machines, if you want to do anything on them you have to jail break them. Now they are even worse than befo...
