The first time I saw her, it was an instant hit. My heart was beating as never before. I could feel my whole body tickling.

Is it love at first sight? I wondered. Everything in her gave me satisfaction. The way she looks at me makes me happy. I am just happy when she is by my side.

Then I had the courage to ask her out. And now we are sharing some moments together. We are even building memories with all the trips we are doing.

With her, I have been able to build the longest relationship so far in my life. Yes, she is still with me in 2021 while we met in 2013.

She is always surprising me each year. She renews her garderobe every year. When I look at her today, I feel like she has not aged at all.

I always take care of her. And she does the same for me. She has helped me grow, learn. We have laughed together, cried together.

The more time I spend with her, the more our relationship grows. I feel like she has contributed to my life in her own unique way.

She is Maze, my Macbook Pro Retina 13-inch from late 2013.

And since then, she is still amazing to me, my Maze.

In this article, I will share my love relationship with Maze, from Apple. Before you go and say that another story from an Apple fanatic, just hear me out.

First I am not an Apple fanatic. Yes, I did own a personal iPhone 3G model when it went out. And recently I got an iPhone 7 as a business phone.

However, since I ditched my iPhone 3G in 2013, I have always had an Android phone. I am currently using the OnePlus 8 Pro as my personal phone. And I am loving it. At work, we are using Windows laptops.

Yet when it comes to user experience, software updates, and system stability, I just ride with Maze, from Apple.

And our story is built upon 3 levels of relationship that Maze’s father, Apple is the master in:

  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Customer Intimacy
  • Customer Long-term relationship.
