    What would you rather do? Upgrade to the new MacBook or get an Apple Watch?

    What would you rather do? Get a new lawnmower or a new sofa?

    Completely different products with completely different purposes.

    The sofa of course. :p

    Seriously, what would you consider to be the more important thing to do?

    Like was said, they are COMPLETELY different.

    It appears you don't have a need for either of them and just want to spend money for the sake of it

    It's a ridiculous question, as they are unrelated products and it makes no sense to compare them. The answer is completely dependent on what a buyer wants to accomplish. The poll makes no sense at all.

    If I was required to make a choice I would go with Macbook.

    Neither product has much appeal for me. I hope they are hugely successful and a delight to the people who buy them.

    I'd go for a 2015 MacBook Pro 13" retina display with Force Touch.

    But, if somebody, like seems your case, ask me to choose between two presents, a New Macbook and an Apple Watch, I'd choose the MacBook. First, it may come in handy for me, and leave my MacBook Pro in home. Second, you can always sell it and buy the Apple Watch.

    Its a no brainer: MacBook.

    The new macbook is not an upgrade from any current macbook.
    They are also totally different products.

    I'd get the apple watch because I already have macs. And it's more within my price range, and I want to play around with developing for the watch and get in to that market while it is fresh.

    I already have a laptop that's much more competent than this Macbook. So if I'm forced to get something, it might as well be the watch. If anything, it'll have first-gen resell value in a few years.

    Both. The MacBook will save my back and the watch will look nice on my arm

    LOL well, I guess since the new Macbook wouldn't really be an upgrade from my current Macbook Pros, I'd go for the watch...even though I still don't really see it's appeal. If it were $150, I might grab one, but meh.

    And in my case both useless, since I already have a rMBP and the Watch is just not practical in general.

    Neither one. I need more than one port and I have a capable smart watch. I could see buying an iPhone someday. My next computer upgrade is a new mini. I think my 2013 Air will last me another year or two - we'll see if Apple keeps my laptop business.

    Very interesting post!

    For me, it's the MacBook, and I only bought my MacBook Pro 4 months ago.

    It probably won't.

    It definitely won't.
