Initially, I bought an apple computer in 2006 after a Windows HP desktop that was plagued with issues, and a $2000 Fujitsu Lifebook laptop that constantly overheated because the fans couldn't handle the tech. Both computers had viruses often because they ran windows, despite expensive antivirus software. So I got an expensive white Macbook, and until 2014, it never had any problems with function and never got a virus. Win for Apple. When I upgraded in 2014, I went with Apple again since I'd had a great experience with them. This time, I got a late 2013 Macbook Pro laptop, with 8gbs ram and 256 gbs ssd, and a retina screen. I love this computer, particularly the screen. The screen is gorgeous and you can't see any of the pixels no matter how hard you might try. I like the sturdy stability of the aluminum body (they feel well made), the texture and accuracy of the trackpad (also feels well made and the mouse doesn't skip around, ever), and the venting through the keyboard. What don't I love? All the hardware is soldered into the body, so I can't upgrade my ram or my harddrive capacity. The other thing...I love the OSX. If I could get a PC laptop where the trackpad is as good as that of the apple, the screen is as good as the retina screen, it wouldn't overheat or burn my lap, I could run OSX on it, and viruses weren't a concern because of this, I'd switch in a second because of the drop in price and the upgradability.
