And so is Apple.
I respectfully disagree. My MacBook Pro which I got around July of 2012 has been 100% reliable. It has never needed any warranty work whatsoever so unlike the Windows laptops I've had in the past. I've had Dell, Gateway, Sony, Toshiba and each and every one of those machines have needed at least two significant repairs under warranty. I will give you that Bose is overrated. I've found some cheap WalMart noise cancelling headphones that work just as well but then again my hearing isn't 100% sharp anyhow.
