It's funny, I've always preferred working on Motorola processors (680X0) and ARM processors starting with the 6800 offshoot, the 6502. But my Apple II was the last Apple computer I ever bought. Maybe because Intel-based computers were far more DIY. And I built my own desktop computers for decades. My current I-5 Dell laptop is the first I ever bought pre-made, mostly because a two year old used one was so incredibly cheap.
We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
