Am I the only one who thinks hardware is overrated?

i always read apple fans talking about how perfect their laptop hardware is, and im thinking in my head: what does it matter the color of the keys and how big the trackpad is... my reasoning for this thought is that most mid to high end laptops today are very usable devices with little fall back. high end laptops are all virtually the same. HP Envys are made out of solid magnesium and look good ettc, for example.

My point is, why do apple fans focus so much on the hardware, yet forget that their software is mostly garbage? OSX is a skeumorphic piece of filth that has the same UI since 2000. to switch between windows you have to remember 6 different hotkeys for rocket ship, spacce shuttle, multi pad, etc. theres like 10 different ways of switching windows.
