But my old keyboard was heavier and bigger and went "click click" when I pushed the keys!

If you consider that high quality, more power to you Mg.

But I don't consider modern keyboards, except for one or two that would make people on this forum go bonkers for me quoting the price on, "high quality".

Reliability and longevity are a 100% necessity for me when it comes to a keyboard - I need something that is a tank and is nigh-invulnerable to most that we modern man can throw at it, even if it is big, heavy, and went "click click". I have zero hesitation in dropping a couple hundred on a keyboard if it will last me more than a few months of heavy typing - I haven't found one that has existed on the modern market that is similarly priced to the Model Ms I can pick up.

Similarly, I remember using a nigh-indestructable ancient...486? laptop in the P2 and P3 era, prior to the creation of the Toughbook (I think, IIRC) line. Granted, I haven't worked in that field in ages, but "high quality" depends on the person reading it. That's what made me lol - If Jason wants to say faster, granted, more capacity, granted, anything up to the exception of high quality. Another example - I don't consider, as an example, the iPad 4 higher quality than the original iPad simply because it's not user serviceable according to the latest press. It may be faster, higher capacity, with newer and neater gadgets, but I've been in a situation or two where having to wait on a warranty cooked my goose because a battery was not user serviceable.

Simply because something is faster or has a larger capacity does not make it high quality. I've seen enough bleeding edge parts go bad to realize this. Or, Jason, would you try to say that the original Xbox 360 with it's serious RROD problems is high quality? I wouldn't. I think it's extremely poor quality, even though the components may be vastly superior to it's predecessor.

I'm enjoying these cherry-picked examples, may I have some more?

Foxconn slave labor produced crap. Over priced for cost of production and completely unnecessary luxury consumer products.

If true Foxconn will slowly lose market share until they shape up.
