    You can get the same quality, if not better, caster wheels online for $20-$30 for an entire set. Stealtho and Opttico being examples. Heck, not only can you get great quality casters for that cheap, you can also get locking casters.

    Marques: Talks about how it is not insulting for apple to overprice their products Me: Well this is exactly why I have not bought an Apple product since my ipod touch in 2011 Also me: Laughs at all the idiots who continue to buy Apple products for no other reason than the apple logo, and even if it is a "luxury" thing, who the hell wants to pay more for something that is not any better than competing manufacturers? If you are that rich to just throw your money away that easily, help people who need the money rather than a business that has way more money than you could even imagine...

    I've seen some videos of these things in passing browsing through youtube. Figured everyone was exaggerating. I'm bored and just googled mac pro wheels and got directed to Apple's website. Holy shit. $699 for 4 fucking wheels. This is like the same price for 4 new tires for your car..... but for caster wheels. I've been thinking about getting a new computer. Currently have a 2013 iMac which has served me well and still operates just fine, which makes it hard to justify upgrading. But since I got it 7 years ago I have been slowly turned off more and more by Apple products in general. Unlike most I don't freak out over the price of their actual computing products be them desktops, laptops, tablets, phones, whatever. iPhones cost about the same as Samsung's (superior) Galaxy counterpart. Yes, superior. I have been using a galaxy since like 2006. I just got a new job several months ago and it comes with a company phone.... an iPhone XR. The interface in the iPhone is fucking retarded as fuck. The keyboard makes no sense whatsoever. The calculator is far inferior to that of the Galaxy's. It's just a poorly user friendly phone IMO that makes little sense. Now people will say it's because I'm used to a Galaxy since I've been using the line for a decade and a half. But I've heard iPhone/Apple loyalists also make the same complaints but refuse to ditch apple for the equal, if not better Android OS and jump on the Galaxy or other phone bandwagon....... because they're used to the nonsensical user interface of the iPhone.... which they admit is a bit retarded. Like having to toggle through 2 screens to get to special characters on the keyboard..... how has that been a thing for so long (i assume) on the iPhone? It's beyond stupid. You know how to make a pound.... or "hashtag" symbol on a Galaxy? Just long press "d" on the keyboard. Calculator.... no history on the iphone. Pull up a previous calculation on the Galaxy? You can do that. And this is just the iPhone vs. everything else. I used to own PCs in the past.... the distant past (pre iMac I had a macbook pro for several years before I wore out the trackpad and it subsequently stopped working properly because of that). I moved away from PCs because they CONSTANTLY crashed and always had issues with them. I hear that nowadays that's pretty much a thing of the past. While PCs are still more susceptible to malware/viruses and whatnot - due to PCs comprising about 90% of the market - it's not as dire a problem as it was in the past....... also, macs aren't exactly impervious to malware anymore either. That said, I've had my iMac for 7 years and it runs about as well as it did when I got it in 2013. You can't deny the reliability. It's why I'm wary of going back to PC, just because it was a nightmare last time I owned a COMPAQ..... DELL..... HP computer. Those would last maybe 2-3 years before performance significantly deteriorated if not outright crashed constanrly or got a virus back when viruses were a thing. No, what's turned me off with Apple is their STUPID AS FUCK prices for their proprietary accessories you need for you Apple product of choice. Apple keyboard or mouse? Easily spending at least $80 if not well north of $100. A power cord? Equally as pricey. I can see justification for the overpriced computing products..... they do just last forever, but equally powerful PC/other company's counterpart product does cost hundreds of dollars less. Or an equally priced PC to an iMac would have about twice the specs/capability/capacity as the iMac. Sure you can buy 3rd party accessories for your Apple products, but still. I can no longer justify the prices Apple charges. $700 for caster wheels is asinine. It's not so much I've been turned off by the products by Apple (other than the retarded as fuck iPhone) but just the company itself. That and...... iMac screens are dated as fuck looking with their MASSIVE bezels. I think in 2013 I paid about $1,000 for my 21.5 inch iMac. I can't find an iMac with similar specs but it's somewhere between the $1100 model they sell and the $1300 model they have. Then to just get an extra 5.5 inches of screen real estate with a 27 inch screen you're looking at almost an increase of $1000...... which is fucking ridiculous. You're looking at $1800 minimum for a 27" iMac. I can easily get an equally spec'd PC with a 32" screen for about $1000. Apple just doesn't make any logical sense anymore...... and hasn't for quite some time IMO. I'm using a company issued PC for work now and it does seem to run smoother, but I'm wondering if that's just because I have to connect it to the company's server.... where they have IT techs monitoring, fixing, and implementing constant updates and security checks. I want to go back to PC but the experience pre my Mac days was a friggin nightmare I can't shake it from my memory and it makes me wary of going back. We shall see. But shit like Apple charging $700 for fucking basic ass caster wheels....... I think I've had enough of Apple altogether. My iMac is the only Apple product I have...... might be... will likely be my last. If anyone read all this, I'd say the main takeaway Apple fanboys should take away is - iPhones are fucking retarded. I've had the one for work for about 6 months and I literally only use it for work because I have to. It's just a miserable user experience and I can't believe it is as popular as it is. Android, specifically Samsung's androif Galaxy phones are far...... FAR superior. I remember 2-3 years ago, whenever the S8 Plus came out I was going to give iphone a shot since they FINALLY just came out with a larger version of their iphone for people with adult sized man hands..... something Samsung had been doing for YEARS before Apple jumped on the "plus" bandwagon. I got as far as ordering the iPhone larger counterpart. But when it arrived in the mail I immediately regretted it and didn't even take the plastic off the box and went to the ATT store to exchange it for the new Galaxy S8 Plus. The regret then was because at the time I used my phone primarily for email but a majority of the time I'd be watching movies/netflix/hulu while at work during downtime (I was a field tech). Galaxy has a far better screen/image quality than the iPhone. One can easily see this in store holding each in their hand and just looking at the screens. THAT is why I exchanged it. Now an iPhone user - for work only - I see now I dodged a massive bullet. I can't stress how nonsensical the iPhone's user interface/experience overall is compared to the Galaxy. So I'd HIGHLY recommend iphone users on the verge of giving up on Apple...... give up. Get an Adroid. I definitely vouch for the Galaxy option. You will not be disappointed. When my current S8+ bites the dust and I'll need an upgrade I think I might make the jump to the Note. I hear that's even a better experience.... even though the screen size is pretty much the same as the + alternative. Not really sure what the other differences are between a Galaxy + phone and the Note other than I think the Note comes with or at least used to come with a stylus. Probably won't be another year or 2 before I upgrade though. Don't understand people who upgrade their phone annually upon every new release from either Apple or Samsung or any other manufacturer. The changes they make from year to year are minimal at best. Bottom line..... iPhones suck major ass.
