To Mac or not to Mac …

I have played with MacOS, mostly in a VM, or on a Dell mini (I call it “iDell mini”), it does run snow leopard.

What I like about MacOS and Macintoshes:

  1. BSD Unix in the back-end, I can still use the console when I need to. Reminds me of my Ubuntu Linux.
  2. The hardware is not the latest technology, and the technology is a controlled set of devices so we have less hardware conflicts.
  3. It looks good.

Those were the pros, but there are also cons:

  1. It’s expensive.
  2. The hardware is not the latest technology, and the technology is a controlled set of devices so we have less hardware possibilities.
  3. I don’t need it.

I’ve been thinking about this since April, and this post has been a draft ever since.

Maybe my next laptop would be a regular high-end laptop, running Ubuntu Linux! So I think it’s not to Mac. System76.com has 6-core hyperthreading (almost 12 cores) i7 extreme CPU devices with 12GB ram … for less than $3000 which is cheaper than a high-end Apple laptop with much less specs.
