literally no the M1 Macbook Air is the best value laptop out there, by far (assuming u dont want to play games ofc, so work related only)

No, its impossible to find a better laptop than the m1 mac for the same price. moreover, m1 macs perform better than the prv mac generation on intel cpus with a 2-3k USD installation.

you run animation programs, CAD models and simulations, video editing work etc on a MAC vs a Windows laptop and you'll notice the difference All these tasks on a MAC run extremely smooth...literally the best laptop for someone who doesn't wanna game but has other GPU intensive work they need to take care of

I have the 2022 Razer blade 15 with i9 and 14 (well 20) cores. It sucks and I'd trade it for a MBP 14" any day. I am drooling for just the battery life. Problem is I was bound to functionality in Windows and despite the work being put in I cannot rely on a preview Windows 11 on arm. For the next few years I am stuck on this

Laugh away kid, I am all regrets so it is fair. It was the only one available in stock with the 12gen i9 and I would much rather have something else. Unfortunately the market for high end business laptops are really slim. There really are around 3-5 different laptops with high resolution (+1440p), decent amount of memory (+32) and decent battery life that can be delivered within Q3. You can laugh even harder at the 230w brick of a charger that uses their proprietary socket. Btw. Apples M1 beats the latest Intel and AMD for compilation as well, without even turning on the fan.

the thought that all you do with laptops is play games shows how little you know about any of those things. I use my mac for web dev and its so much better than any windows OS its ridiculous. yes, im thinking also to switch to arch linux soon probably, but comparing mac to windows is delusional. stay in your wonderland and play pc games and dont use it for anything else edit: i also saw rn you said "It will overheat like crazy with such trash cooling after some long intensive work." i really tried being nice but now i gotta say stfu cause you have no idea about m chip series at all. funny guy
2022-06-27 01:20
ofc I'm not talking about gaming.
2022-06-27 01:24
the reason the m1 is so much better is that it is much more power-efficient, which means less heat and requires less cooling. I don't know what you mean by "parts that are not CPU" since the m1 is the ram, GPU, and CPU in one. and ofc nobody is buying a mac to game on, it is not made for that.

I have a desktop pc to game on and use when I am home and a MacBook Air that I use at university. I'm not saying that a mac is the best possible laptop for everyone but if you need a work/school computer that you don't intend to game on, right now mac is the best option in my opinion.

Yea, for 3 hours until it dies. My "Windows laptop" has: 12th Gen i9 12800H 1440p 240Hz monitor RTX 3080 Ti 32 GB DDR5 1TB M2 SSD Pretty much top specced atm. It sucks ass and no matter what, I'd still play video games on my stationary PC. Laptops are not meant for intense gaming, despite some depicted as such.

I have to game on a 2017 MacBook Pro 13 inch (8gb ram, integrated graphics, +1tb ssd NVMe mod). I dual boot in windows and it can run cs:go fine (min 60 fps) when using reasonable graphics settings. I don't regret buying since it is very good build quality and has lasted a long time with no issues. Many of my friends who brought similar spec windows laptops have had them break and needed to buy a new one. I would highly recommend a MacBook although perhaps not for gaming as its bit of a struggle.

MacBook airs are absolute tanks, I’ve had mine for 9 years and still use it for word processing, browsing the web etc.. performance doesn’t drop unlike windows if you don’t update it to newer iOS’s. I also have an hp elitebook which has a similar aluminium chassis, that’s a windows alternative but the thing is they’re more expensive that Mac airs.
