Wow getting so much hate. Macbooks are amazing. If you’ve never used one, you dont get a vote.
I agree, don't own one though. The price is high, but at least it comes with an aluminium chassis!!
Macbooks Are Great, But The Performance Per Dollar Is Shit. Tho If You Have The Money Its A Great Machine. Pick Your Choice : Performance Per Dollar , Or Just A Great , Elegant But Expensive Machine. I Respect Your Choice. Have A Nice Day. :)
David T I have the money to buy a new 2017 MBP but I kinda dont want to dish out so much money yuh know. Should I invest in a Lenovo 720/XPS 15 or should I go ahead and drop $2800?

- you would be investing in the MacBook Pro and dropping money down the drain relatively speaking on the Windows machines. The laptop I had before my MacBook Pro was a Lenovo and it crapped out in under 2 years and was worth nothing in resale. Amazingly enough my 3yr old MacBook Pro is still worth around $900 used. Your choice. Personally I could not go back to the Windows OS after MacOS. I cringe when I have to use Windows for work. There are other options too like buying an older MacBook Pro if you don't want to spend the money. I actually bought the new MacBook Pro the one that was about $2800 but returned it because it wasn't much faster than my existing one. So I am waiting till next year and the new MacOS which will allow native support for the EGPUs.

meraki If you buy a $700 Windows machine and expect it to last as long as a $2.5k Apple machine, then obviously you are doing it wrong. I bought an Asus Zenbook a year ago and it has been perfect so far, no issues whatsoever. I would suggest you to look into options like Thinkpad, new XPS 15/13, the Spectre series or the Zenbook by Asus. If you invest in top of the line Windows notebooks I can guarantee it will last as long as the macbooks. My last laptop was an HP pavilion DV series. It lasted me 8 years but the battery is totally drained. If I change the battery it will start humming again thereby proving myths wrong that Windows machine don't last long.
I was thinking between an XPS 15 maxed out or a MBP maxed out but I'm not a huge power user. I just don't want to limit myself by buying the mid tier of either laptops. And yeah, I have a hp pavillion dv6 right now. Utter trash but it's served its purpose for 6 years so I know how long a pc can last if you take care of it
Puru S Honestly man, I just browse the internet and watch a lot of YouTube or browse through Reddit. But I do want to play games like CS GO or play Indie Games like The Escapists. I can't really do that on my current PC Edit: I'm also heading to college real soon. I don't know what to expect other than me needing a laptop good enough for work in college
