The experience with Mac is great that’s why I think you might want to give it a try ;). Also a chance to start moving from PC to Mac; getting acquainted to this system soon makes it easier for you in case you work in a new environment where everyone is equipped with a Mac. Just my two cents :)

good point, why not give it a try, this devices last 4-5 years max anyway. I used it and “kinda” liked it , I guess after so many years of pc is quite normal. Thing I hated most: mouse and keybord are abit silly

Sorry? Is that an anti-Mac comment?

Just kidding, I’d always recommend a Mac to people, but I’m a Mac fanboy.

Reality = Bootcamp makes Windows run slower.. and Apple will sue anyone who tries to Virtualize OSX as they do with Windows (thats why VMWare no longer supports OSX emulation) ;)

Not only is it an actual dualboot rather than virtualization of the OS, the main reason why Apple is able to sue people who run OSX on a non-Mac (which, by the way, doesn’t really happen – the hackintosh community is quite large) and Microsoft isn’t, is hardware. While Microsoft runs their OS’s on third party hardware (including Macbooks), Apple builds their own. Microsoft sells the OS separately, while Apple only sells upgrades separately and ships the OS with the hardware. It’s a business choice.

Qoute from article:
Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro from mid-2012 had the fewest crashes per week and hangs per week, with a total score of 1.05 (less is better).

It’s followed by a 15-inch Acer Aspire E1-571 with a 1.12 score and a Dell XPS 13, whose score was 1.28.

False! All Acer computers are very bad when it comes about performance and not only. I’ve never seen an Acer computer that work normally, and I don’t agree with this article, it can’t be on second place, never.

Sorry, I tried to not share this but the devil on my shoulder prevailed:

MacBook Pro Is ‘Best Performing’ Windows Laptop, Report Claims.

:grin:

haha, when I saw the thread title I was going to reply with Macbook Pro lol

I would agree though, my MBP is far more solid than my custom rig :s

You’re just paying for the name of razor and alienware tbh, all you need is something with a good processor and good graphics card if that’s what you need, upgrade the ram yourself and use a big external hard drive,

I just got a:

https://www.asus.com/ROG/G75VX/

... 2 months ago. It craps on any of the ones mentioned there with 2 fingers up its nose – and hasn’t crashed once. And if it should it reboots in 11 seconds :)

*Ben, you are right if you build your own box, I’ve done this for over a decade. Just choose quality components and make sure they work well together. However on laptops and architecture like the ASUS for example is superior to a run of the mill lappie. The airflow and cooling are amazing for example, the thing doesn’t even get lukewarm after hours of gamin – and where I live it’s hot! :)

Cheers

Chris
