A top of the line 27” iMac with all the trimmings is just over €4000 and has user upgradable RAM, as explicitly stated by Apple. So your click bait is off by a factor of 25% on one major point and outright incorrect on another.

...It was not my intent to provide the appearance of being pro-Android. It's a steaming pile of patched up shit, only bearable on the few phones that do not come from manufacturer that aspire to be UI artists.

Incidently for the past few months I have been using this phone. It is an OS with a very questionable future, but for the moment it's a well built phone for cheap and it does everything it can without a bunch of bullshit. I forsee a future when Windows on ARM is sucessful and leads to full fat Windows OS on phones that can be plugged into things like the Mirabook, but that is still a year or three away.

My iPhone 7S+ is the first one I've ever kept in a case. Well, technically, it's the second; I bought a "bumper" with my 4S. That stayed on for a bout two days before I grew tired of it and chucked it in a drawer where, for all I know, it still sits to this day.

My new iPhone it thin enough that the case doesn't bother me, and now I just have a black leather iPhone, for all I care.

RE: *cough*
Yeah. I actually prefer the thicker phone with the case on.
I didn't do the leather case. This new one is less rubbery than the old ones, so its easier to get in and out of pockets.

That doesn't stop me from accidentally dismissing phone calls just by trying to get it out of my pocket...

RE: *cough*
It is inevitable. Apple's cell-oriented organization means that the debugging teams have to wait until the OS is released before they can start, have to figure out the code themselves without checking with the person who wrote it, has to find a way to fix the bug while praying it doesn't create new problems for the end users, and is not able to communicate with the development team so that they fix the bug in the upstream or at the bare minimum learn how to avoid similar fuckups.

Meaning that bugs don't always stay fixed, and the OS stability only gets worse over time.

All the while Microsoft has a little bit more elegant solution:

Anyone can opt into getting development builds, with different stability channels depending on how adventurous they feel.
Anyone can submit or vote on bugs AND feature requests in the Feedback hub, and can star existing posts.
The entire development team can see what the current problems are and what the most number of customers encounter, and choose to tackle bugs and features in order of severity and complexity
Fixes and new features get immediately added to the development builds, trickling down the stability channels to consumers as the patch is verified.

Meaning the bugs and features can be dealt with at a fairly quick pace, and the OS becomes more stable and user friendly over time.

Mac OS X was great around the Snow Leopard era, but it's just getting worse and worse and will never improve unless Apple undergoes a dramatic restructure. While Windows 10 is already several orders of magnitude closer to perfection then it was even just six months ago.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

The fact that you don't understand DevOps is apparent in your post.

I may not know DevOps very well, but I can presume that it is reliant on good communication. Although I can't find it at the moment (Continuum has it's limits), I was recent reading a report describing Apple's structure as that of a security company where employees are segregated into smaller units/cells which have very little communication and knowledge of other projects. That kind of organization can make collaborating on resolving bugs a lot more difficult, ESPECIALLY if you keep development and mainteance seperate. 

This does seem to match up with the increasing complaints I hear from Apple users and the decreasing complaints from Microsoft users (complaints from Windows Phone users have almost completely dropped off, but for a different reason)
