i've been using windows my whole life. the laptop i have now is the only laptop i've ever owned. it's 4 years old and a complete piece of shit. i'm really interested in converting to a macbook. i just struggle a little with the price. i can afford it, i just want to be sure it's not going to be a waste, y'know?

i recently ditched my pc and bought one, pretty much a solid decision imo. i used to be into desktops and custom pc's and shit but i just really don't care anymore and i've always wanted to run os x natively. macbook pros + os x are really really dope, and thats coming from having used windows forever

Mac is worth it and Macbook Pro is one of the best out there. Depends on what you want to use it for if it's the Pro you want to buy. If it's for home use only you might find it nicer to have an iMac even. If it has to be extremely portable Air might be it. For work here and there + main home use I would recommend the MBP.

is it easy to get used to? also is it easily customizable (in terms of RAM & HDD upgrades)? is it possible to run games from steam on it? or is it not meant for gaming AT ALL?

it's for mainly home use, but i like having the option of moving it around my house, or leaving the house with it. it's for mainly music, and movies. a media computer basically is what i need. just getting tired of windows & its bugginess.

yea adding ram and hdd's isn't a problem, i'm pretty sure you can even install an ssd in the new ones. i used to play games like cs source and tf2 on my pc and they run pretty smoothly on this (i have the 15" 1440x900 display).

i was basically in the same situation as you, i was tired of windows and i was also done with desktop pc's and wanted a laptop that was almost as powerful.

not even discussing this with you, you argue everything.
honestly though, who cares.


Blu ray would be a nice addition, but it's not really necessary.

I'm more concerned about devices to use thunderbolt with, than a blu ray drive most people will barely use.

Mac isn't hard to use. I believe Macs are easier to use than windows. Macs are more user-friendly than windows computers.

What I've always said Mac=general population(idiocracy) and Windows=More advanced users.
BTW, I'm on my Mac and I switch back and forth a lot.

Not really. You can do quite a bit with Mac if you know how to use it properly. Windows users often fail to see it.

Disc drives are starting to be useless anyway. I need to use a disc maybe once a year.

What can you not do on a Windows that you can with a Mac?

Enough with the Windows vs Mac debate.

OP, Macs have a great build quality and it competes very well with other laptops. You can't go wrong with a Mac or any laptop around the price of MBP. I love my MBP and would get another one once it hits the deck.

Games

Debate on which is better can go on forever. OP should just play around with a MBP at the apple store for a bit and see if you like it. Go from there. What sold me was the solid build they have.

you can dual boot Mac OSX and WIndows, and play all your games on your Windows partition tbh.
