My current setup isn't working out, and I need to buy a windows laptop to run certain software. I understand I can run my MacBook pro in boot camp, but it just isn't practical for me to do it full time. Looking to spend around $1000. I have always heard good things about dell xps 13. Aesthetically I like the Thinkpad it is cool in a old-school way. A lot of sites seem to recommend the surface laptop, but I will be damned if I buy a suede laptop, that is the dumbest thing ever. Any other ones I am missing? Looking to get out as cheap as possible for passing performance. This will mostly be used to run antiquated software that takes little to no power, and to keep me entertained in hotels.
