Discussion on: You Probably Don't Need a Mac

I completely agree, I have been using a Chromebook as part of my core devices for the last 4 years. With everything in in the cloud I can jump from device to device without having to maintain a bunch of dev environments. I have a Mac, PC and a Chromebook and honestly I really enjoy ChromeOS just getting out of the way.

Having remotely hosted containers for development has greatly streamlined my development process, especially when it comes to collaborating with other developers. Now with VS/Github Codespaces and Gitpod the setup has become so much easier.

I also enjoy having my development environments located in the same data centre as my data, the transfer speeds are crazy fast, something that I didn't appreciate until I recently moved to an area with rubbish internet.
