    1. Just bought iMac 27inch 5k (all set to the max except for the RAM, I just set it to be 16GB.

    2. I never own any iMac before, so i bought it with confident, since I read the review on the internet, about how fast the mac is, clean, beautiful, and blablabla compare to PC.

    3. But after I received the iMac here the list of my problems:

    - I thought it gonna be more easy than PC & cutting more time than PC, the way how I interact & manage the files. But end up its more harder than PC. It make how I interact with the files, software/app etc more harder than usual. More work todo. In term off.. closing bar, docks, delete file, copy, shortcut key and so many things I can't even explains!

    - The Mac OS looks clean, but the reality is, it very un-feautures. I feel, I stuck inside beautiful house, but the house have no tv, bed etc. Because many softwares that will make my work more easy, connivence, user friendly, cutting my time doesn't ever exists on MAC.

    - PC looks ugly, but it's "straight toward" when it come to user interaction. You want delete file? Press delete. You want cut and paste etc? Easy. You want views photo etc. And many more other thing PC are good with!

    - PC also have more freedom. It opened the gate for you to install tons of software and playing with various type of features. That will make you business, file management, file interaction become straight forward and more productive.
    (now i know why mac very hard to get virus, not much software build for mac, even basic software will cost you $$).

    - With my higher price of mac, even i need to play some game, i need to set all to be medium and the graphic looks suck! While with that amount of money i can just purchase gaming rig higher GPU & SSD, as the result fast OS, with tons of features inside of it, plus I can gaming with ultra setting!
    Indeed i'm stupid lol. Because Apple advertising is too good. :(

    I have no idea how can people purchase the mac and happy with it.

    Conclusion, how can i sell my mac that dint even reach 1 week yet but i live in south asian, and they dint provide the refund.

    Thanks.

    your country's classifieds or apple forum.

    plenty of options in cases, build in pcs or even laptops that look damn good (and in my opinion better than any apple product)
    these days aesthetics are a very big market in the pc world, something that apple is very limited in.

    i recently bought a new macbook pro 2016 15', i actually preferred it over my XPS 15. Love the Unix based OS and all that, probably because i don't actually play any games anymore :D

    If you just bought it you should check that you can't just simply send it back for a refund?

    This. Most of the stuff you mentioned - deleting, copy and paste etc can all be done on a Mac, just the shortcuts are different.
    I used a Mac at a previous job and honestly, it took some getting used to, but I wish I still had one :(

    Doesn't sound like you have truly given time to get used to it.

    This is a comedy post, right?
    The shortcuts are not the same as a PC so you want a refund?
    The buttons look a little different, so you want a refund?
    The files are not in the same place, so you want a refund?

    I am surprised that you didn't list a reason for wanting a refund was due to the Apple logo on the front doesn't look like the Windows logo.

    So many software it can't support.

    I have no idea why people bought this $2000-$4000 machine just to use Microsoft Word.
    (unless you bought it for video / music creator, witch is windows can do this too).

    It super un-features . I still can adapt the interface even its hard, for the dock I need to purchase some app called hyperdock, so it will have thumbnail like windows, that would make how your interact with app / file lot more easier.

    For photoshop I always use CS2, witch is free and easier to use. And on mac it dint support this.

    For design mapping, I always use Microsoft Paint, to map the design before I'll froward the design to my designer, and on mac it have no paint, I need to searching for alternative, took me 24hours just to find similar program that is simple and functioning as ms paint.

    Called Paint X, and its not free! But still not perfect enough. It have no invert color function.

    For image management I like to use Faststones (witch is FREE), gues what on mac? it dint exits too, even similar alternative that only 60% similar already cost me almost hundred of bucks.

    wtf
