I'm currently using a 15" Macbook Pro, mid 2015, it works great, hopefully I can get a few more years out of it but when Apple does stop supporting it, I truly don't want to spend over 2k for a 15" laptop when I am primarily using it for word processing and internet. I really don't want to leave MacOS but I would like to know if there are viable alternatives. I originally left Windows because Vista annoyed me and the glossy Sony Vaio I purchased caused much eyestrain. I bought a 2008 Macbook Pro 15" matte screen, great computer, lasted 7 years before it died. I was initially hesitant to use a non matte screen but I did not want to leave the Mac OS and I purchased a Moshi Ivisor Matte screen cover for the 2015 retina screen. I used the computer for a week without the cover and the retina screen did not cause any eye fatigue, I still put the cover on anyway but if I switch over to a Windows PC, the screen would be the biggest factor to consider. Does a decent screen (matte or close to retina quality) exist at 15" in a laptop less than $800 or maybe $1000, anything over 1k and I might as well just consider a 13" Macbook Pro. The other important factor would be a laptop that has a decent trackpad, it does not have to fully match the Apple trackpad but it can't be subpar in general. I would consider a chromebook but there are certain apps I need and I'm not sure there are suitable Chrome OS alternatives. However if anyone here have used Chromebooks with quality screens and trackpads below $1k, please offer those examples as well. Thanks.
