You can’t fault longtime die-hard Mac users for being a little frustrated with Apple. In the space of just a decade, they’ve watched their favorite platform go from being the center of the company’s attention to a minor line item.

Macs aren’t even regularly refreshed with new processors from Intel, Nvidia, and AMD as they’re released anymore; we could rely on that as recently as three years ago.
