I’m not sure the answer is in this sprawling mess. Macs are better than PCs in every possible way. No offence.
I’ve always been a Windows chump, partly because of the cost of Apple stuff, partly because of an aversion to the cult of Apple and partly because I have a feeling that Apple seems controlling and that their products are less flexible as a result.
I’ve bought an iPad recently and I do like it although it feels a bit restrictive at times. I suppose I wasn’t expecting to have laptop-style functionality from something that’s essentially an entertainment tool but I’m slightly worried about moving over to a Mac.
I’d want to do all the general laptoppy stuff but I’d also probably have some niche requirements. Like running mapping software for daft roleplaying games for example. From what I can tell there’s OS versions of lots of those so maybe there’s nothing to worry about.
To be honest I’m probably overestimating the amount of niche things but I just worry that there’s going to be something I won’t be able to do with a Mac.
Also I could be kidding myself about the amount of freedom I need. I’m reasonably tech savvy and I do relish the lack of restrictions with Android but I’m not so fussy that I’ve rooted my phone and I’ve never abandoned Windows for Linux. It’s not like I’m hacking NASA all day while stroking my raspberry pi.
Basically am I going to regret it? I’m still going to have to use a Windows laptop all day for work am I going to hate switching between them all the time or will I get used to it?
Anyone made the switch and wish they hadn’t? Glad they did?
