re: What PC would you buy as a new dev now? VIEW POST


If I had to replace my computing infrastructure today, I'd by a refurbished 15" mid-2015 MacBook Pro to replace the one I'm typing on now (the newer models have atrocious keyboards) and an HPE MicroServer to replace the one running upstairs. I have a few tools that tie me strongly to macOS, otherwise I'd probably go to Windows at this point.

I doubt I'll run Linux on the desktop again, despite doing so for well over a decade.


I thought long and hard about building a Hackintosh setup for my new PC, but ultimately decided against it. I have a 2013 MBP that is still running strong, but with each update, it struggles a little bit more. I can't justify buying the kind of specs I want in a DEV machine for a new MBP, so unless my employer wants to pay for it...not gonna happen :(

Hackintosh was really tempting and would be really cool if I got it to work, but the fact that it can fail without reason pretty much at any time makes it unacceptable for anything except bragging about how you have a Hackintosh
