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:
- BSD Unix in the back-end, I can still use the console when I need to. Reminds me of my Ubuntu Linux.
- The hardware is not the latest technology, and the technology is a controlled set of devices so we have less hardware conflicts.
- It looks good.
Those were the pros, but there are also cons:
- It’s expensive.
- The hardware is not the latest technology, and the technology is a controlled set of devices so we have less hardware possibilities.
- 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.
