Despite an outcry from professional users, Apple's new MacBook Pro has surpassed the total sales of nearly all notable laptops in just five days, reports Slice.

Slice Intelligence reports that in the first five days of availability online, the latest model generated over seven times the revenue that the MacBook 12-inch did during its April 2015 launch. The new model’s sales already equal 78 percent of all the revenue generated by the MacBook 12-inch since it became available, and has accumulated more revenue than any other laptop this year.

Dude if people are giving money to Apple for their laptops, that means they're doing a good job. Say what you will about those people but given there's so many of them, maybe they see something you don't.

Samsung does a good job with the vast majority of their products, yes. That's why people give them so much money. Anyway, you clearly still love Apple and are fecking passionate about them judging by your essay length diatribes.

Hang on - Apple customers aren't buying the products on reputation. They're buying them because they like them, and they work for them. Do you REALLY think that someone buys a MacBook, finds it's a pile of garbage, and then buys the next iteration? Do you think that people who have an iPhone 5, or 6 is disappointed with it, but sticks with the brand and gets the iPhone 7 because they are idiots? Nope...it's because Apple has created products that people like and want.

I'm one of those newcomers. I started off with an iPod, then went to an iPhone, and then dived in with an iPad, iPad Air, iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle, Apple TV, MacBook Pro, iMac, Powerbeats wireless earphones, Apple Wat... I'm sure you know where I'm headed. Thing is - for (relative) newcomers like me, there's the whole ecosystem thing. I think it's a truism that the more Apple products you own, the better each constituent part is. And even more importantly, whilst Apple might be losing the loyalty of those who stuck with the brand in the glory days, it DOES have the loyalty of a whole load of new customers. Customers who developed their relationship with Apple via the iPhone and/or the iPad. I have a 2013 MacBook Pro and after many years of using Windows from various hardware OEMs, I find my MPB an absolute joy to use. It's as fast as the day I purchased it, and I prefer macOS to Windows 10 (which I use at work). Put simply - I like the way that Apple products hang together. I like the tiny little design touches (such as the way that I don't need to enter a password on my iMac or MacBook, if I'm wearing my Apple Watch). But I see where you're coming from. It's like being a fan of Madonna in her 80s glory days and looking at the people who are buying her new music now, thinking "Yeah...but she's a shadow of herself". Thing is - it's only if you've lived through the past that you would have the power of comparison. (Insert any other singer if Madonna isn't your cup of tea).
