Discussion on: You Probably Don't Need a Mac

No, as I pointed out, computers are my primary tool, I always try to get the best kit.

It would be fair to say that I spent only about a 6 months running Linux stuff as a desktop, and like many use Linux day in/day out on servers and VMs.

I'm happy Linux works for you, it doesn't work for me as well as a Mac. I ran a software company with a Windows based product for 15 years, that was a lot of PCs. Can't say how grateful I have been that the last 10 have been on a Mac.

I use old Macs for music production but i wouldn't touch any newer than around 2012, after that, they have become less upgradeable, throwaway items.

Why would I want to save money on the tool that I use to make my living?

Anyone who doesn't have a high income is going to have a good answer to that.
