              If you’re used to MacBooks then look at the Microsoft Surface Books, HP Spectres, HP Envys, and Lenovo Yogas.

                  I’ve never had a single problem w/ my MacBook Air, but I must admit that in the last few months away from academics, I haven’t used it andI’ve relied almost exclusively on my iPad Pro w/ Logi keyboard/protector-in-one (& Apple Pencil), which has the same Apple keyboard as my MacBook Air, which, also, does not, & has never, given me a problem. The only time I’m using a PC since completing my doctorate in 2009 is when I’m in the Office at Auburn, b/c they only provide PC support and “upgrades” (eg, statistical packages that they only have licenses for in PC version). Auburn’s give people an allowance, initially, to purchase an Apple if the professor wishes, but then they’re on their own for any new software upgrades, etc. (& for the same allowance {really just instead of}, I was able to have a 3-monitor setup, new PC {but still recycled, old later printer that looked almost like a dot-matrix style, even though it does print surprisingly well {for all I know it’s upgraded parts w/in a much larger, original laser printer, container}). That being said, if/when my MacBook Air, which still functions, and looks new, and/or my iPad Pro do finally reach the end of their lives, I will check out Windows; the new Surface 2 (or is it 3; I don’t know, but whatever it is) does look like it’s going to give the new MacBook Airs a run for their money, but by then, I expect that Apple will have caught up. The thing is, however, as a marketing and entrepreneurship professor, and I’d assume you know this as well; Apple doesn’t have to keep up with “the Joneses” anymore; they don’’t compete based, primarily, on their devices (e.g., their iPhones, etc,). This is where, during said lecture each semester I have a number of Apple Loyalists, begin to challenge me, but the easiest time for proving them wrong was when they had that rapper (damn it; I forget his name at the moment) dunking his Samsung in a fish tank, pouring champagne over his phone, etc. ... Apple, initially, back in the IBM-vs-Apple days, you referenced, did compete on its products primarily; yet, since it’s major push into iTunes, which I know is now being split-up somewhat (but in theory is, & will continue to, remain(ing)), Apple has, very smartly, quit competing based on it’s products; it is, and became, a service-dominant competitor back when my coauthor, mentor, and founder of Service-Dominant-Logic (2003, first printed 2005, but you can Google SD-Logic, or SDL, for other versions), but Bob Lusch, consulted w/ them regularly, before and after Apple’s initial competitive change via iTunes. Apple competes based upon providing seamless solutions across platforms; their phones (for example), have to be “in the ballpark,” but they don’t need to be the “best.” Why? iTunes is just one of the many, but definitely one of the earliest, reasons that Apple people didn’t care if their iPhones couldn’t be covered in champagne, etc. Once one was invested in iTunes, and the tipping-point, I assume, has shifted to requiring more today given the newer streaming services, etc., they were “hooked.” Seamless service (eg, use in this case) required one to slowly migrate all their devices to Apple to experience, maintain, and/or expand their seamless service experiences, which eventually evolved into iCloud, etc. Others have caught up on the realization that the device, itself, isn’t really what you’re buying; heck, you just did a video wherein much of the time you spent explaining how a number of the PC’s layout, etc. wasn’t “ideal, etc.;” people buy devices (appliances/tools), the name doesn’t matter really...because they all mean the same thing - a tool to get something - ie, a service, whatever that service you’re wanting to get done, accomplished in the best manner you believe - and iTunes created a huge, exit-barrier for the provision of seamless entertainment service, etc., which is why Apple no longer had to have the “best” as long as it was “close enough” (usually “one behind” Samsung).

                    After switching from os to os, I realise, none of them is perfect. But all of them have something nice. I think it is nice to switch from time to time, but all of them can do 90% of what you want.

                        Every time I use windows for a while it just gets slow my Mac is 8 years old and runs the same as day one that’s what you pay for longevity. Windows is clunky and the fan goes crazy at random times

                                    The big pain comes with having to use Windows. Also say goodbye to OS upgrades that work. But the Windows updates usually require new hardware anyway.Speaking of hardware - get used to non-standard hardware. Be sure to keep the driver disk in case it ever needs a reload or an upgrade.

It’s a fashion statement at this point. The performance difference between the two are staggering. Considering used 4GB model of Mac laptops are going for 500$ still. I bought a Lenovo yoga with 12GB of ram with an I5 for 250$ used. Will perform just as well as the brand new Mac besides the absolute top of the line model. Never the less how much do those Mac costs 😂?

I have yet been able to justify the high purchase price over windows laptops with metal casing and lit up keyboards for about half the price. The apple laptops do have anmazing screeen and can see that as the only advantge?

It is a highly reliable system for both software and hardware. As for accessories they are far lower in cost, and very universal when comparing with the MAC. With Windows devices and including Android devices there are many accessories and devices that are multi compatible working together.

                                                                      With most Windows PC devices you can have them serviced universally, and you can buy the parts yourself without being bound to a proprietary dealer only. This is also the same with Android devices such as Android phones and tablets. Very open system for parts and service, and is not extremely expensive for servicing.

I use that at work (I have to). Also the overall design of the laptop is horrible! I don't know how can you like that ugly thing over the Mac. I hope you only answering emails on that thing and don't do any other type of work. :P

I’ve had the first gen MAC air for 3 years and it’s down for an upgrade. I’ve no idea which one to buy after this . The new MAC air seems to be a better upgrade but the pro was the one that I was originally looking at now I have no idea because apparently the pro is going through some major problems for some but not for everyone . Please lemme know . I’m a high school student entering grade 11 or what Americans call as sophomore year in high school and I have a lot of extended essays and researches to do so I need a laptop that’s fast and good .

                                                                              • Leisha

                                                                              • Alpha4Sierra

                                                                                The Macbook Air would be sufficient for academic use. However, the issue with the keyboard is something you need to consider. The new Macbooks (2016 onwards) use the Butterfly Switch Mechanism, and there has been a plethora of reported issues. Just do a quick google search and you will find countless articles.

                                                                                The good news is that Apple has acknowledged that there is an issue with the buttefly switch mechanism however they haven't fixed the issue, they just have increased the warranty life period to 4 years after the device purchase date. The fact that Apple, a company known for rarely owning up to their own mistakes, acknowledging that there is an issue is telling, but I digress.

                                                                                So for you, a high school student who would most likely use it when you go to university as well, I would recommend the Macbook Air, because if you are not going to do Video Editing or other high intensive multimedia tasks, it would be a waste. But there is a better screen as well. You just need to weigh your costs with your needs. I hope this helps.
