So I'm here to get some buying advice from you guys. Background: I've always been a techie Windows user... My knowledge extends as far back as win 3.1 all the way up to today. I've built tons of computers both professionally and as a hobby. I also really love messing with Linux. On the other hand of the spectrum, I love my iPhone and iPad. For years I've always concluded that there's nothing in Mac OS for me and I have no need for an all in one computer (I build). I've attempted setting up a hackintosh... And while I did get it working, it just doesn't work all that well... Weird things happen. What I do need at this point however is a laptop. The Mac laptops are uber sexy and I figured this would be a good chance for me to expand my knowledge to Mac OS. I do not plan on gaming, but I do plan on video production (some YouTube stuff) and possibly some photo editing. I know that 4GB just won't cut it, 8gb might... But I'm just not sure how memory efficient a MacBook is compared to Windows. I've always just jammed as much memory into my machines as needed. Right now I'm looking at the MacBook Pro as my first machine... I plan on either VMing Windows or dual booting... So I'll need a 256gb minimum (I assume) What recommendations do you all have for my first MAC PC? --- Post Merged, Mar 10, 2016 --- I forgot to mention that I also plan on hooking up the device to my Dell Ultrasharp 34" part of the time. I want to make sure that it can support the 21:9 1440p resolution via TB.
