Hi Jakub! Years back I had no choice because in the design industry people expect you to use mac, with some mac only apps like sketch. Today I'm back in Linux with no regrets. My last mac is from 2014 and no plans on buying a new one. So unless you need to use a mac specific tool no point on following trends, buy and use the tool that fit your needs.

I have the same opinion: unless I don't need to use Mac-only software, I don't see any reason why I should buy one (besides that they're pretty and elegant, but should it cost so much because of it?).

Absolutely! I think macs got a lot of traction back in the day because the poor options in the PC side, being a very reasonable Unix like. But nowadays there are nice alternatives.
