    • The kinda performance you can get on a cheap windows computer now is pretty impressive. Really the big reason to go for a MBP, or high end Windows computer like an XPS/Surface is the build quality and screens (and possibly webcams) but the Inspiron line is a lot closer than it was a few years ago.

    • Fascinating! I really wanted to migrate to a windows laptop but in the end I shelled out an extra $2,000 or so (ouch) because convenience. So many apps to read-install, so many things like Airdrop and FaceTime that are part of my muscle memory now.

      $5,700 later, I honestly thought I’d notice a bigger diff between my 15-inch 2016 MacBook Pro with 16 GB of RAM and my new 16-inch with 64 GB, especially because I make heavy use of video and photo editing, but honestly the only thing I notice is a better keyboard. Too bad I use a Bluetooth keyboard 95% of the time because I like it better than Apple’s.
