    I’ve been wanting to switch over to Apple for a while now but just haven’t been convinced it’s going to be much better for me than PCs…looks nice though

    i love my mac, but i’ve had it for 3 years and it’s not nearly as green as the new ones. can’t justify getting a new one now, but i know when the time comes, they’ll be even better, more sustainable.i’ve also been considering an iphone, but i can’t bring myself to get a new phone until mine dies. planned obsolescence will make it happen eventually!
