Hey! Congrats on the job. I just recently bought a Lenovo ThinkPad T460s. It's rather cheap compared to a similarly specced MacBook Pro, and an awesome work horse. Have in mind it has all the ports you would ever need. Running Ubuntu on it is blazingly fast. It's made out of a magnesium alloy, making it much lighter than the MacBook equivalent. And that alone just sounds so cool.
If you're comfortable with using Linux instead of MacOS as your primary OS on a personal machine, it's worth checking out.
