I'm Linux (Fedora) enthusiast, convince me to get MB Air 2 instead of a PC laptop!
One thing people often miss when they look at the expensiveness of Mac hardware is, that’s only one component. The other component is macOS itself. And as far as I’m concerned, macOS really is the reason why you buy a Mac; if you want to get more done in less time, then you might want to think about getting a Mac. It’s the integration between all of its parts that makes macOS more efficient and that’s all done in software. And the hardware for the most part is more reliable than windows based hardware because Apple makes many fewer devices. They know what they have in terms of hardware, and they can make special instructions to make the software work faster. Rosetta 2 comes to mind.
Otherwise I wouldn’t.
