What are you looking to do? Are the apps you need available in Linux? Before taking the plunge, you'll need to line up your ducks, so to speak. Ensure that the platform is capable of running what you need to run.Has anyone replaced MacOS with Linux?
Don't do it. Every ThinkPad will work way better with Linux than any MBP. Aand you get better ports and better keyboard. Only reason to purchase MBP is Mac OS and the software.
I'm waiting for refurbished market with prices approaching reasonable numbers. Then again, the ThinkPad is a top alternative.
