Hi all, I have worked in IT for a decade now, and for the first time I find myself having to be fluent in Macs. I didn't really know what to expect at first, but sufficed to say I like what I see. It also happens to be upgrade time; I'm currently using a Dell XPS 9530 (15") with an i7, 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD (oh, and an Nivida dedicated GPU / 3.5kish screen). Truth be told, I've never needed all of that power. I was originally purchasing the machine to edit videos etc., but that never panned out (long story) - so I've been stuck with a behemoth for answering emails, remotely interfacing with servers, streaming media, etc. You get the idea - it's complete overkill. So, to the point. I want to purchase either a Macbook Pro 13", or a Macbook. Portability is the most important thing (ruling out 15" models), because I'm always lugging my equipment around and also do a lot of travel outside of the country. On the surface of things, the Macbook is the best bet... but for less money, I can get vastly better hardware / battery life (important) in the 13". It's hardware that I don't necessarily need - I know that the Macbook will handle anything I require professionally and personally, but can I really justify paying more for drastically inferior hardware? I find myself in the strange and previously un-encountered position of "But... it's so shiny!", apparently bereft of my usual discernment. Are there any other IT people here using a Macbook as their daily driver? If so, could you please enlighten me as to how it fares? FWIW, the 'one port fiasco' doesn't bother me. Happy to use adapters when needs be; not fussy about that kind of thing. Thanks!
