I'd say you need OSX and that can run on a VM (or even something like this if you're really nerdy). In my mind the hardware has to be better than the competition, considering the price premium. Now that I think about it, I wonder if that touch bar thing had anything to do with this ... that wouldn't be out of character for Apple (no judgement intended)
