Howdy! My old laptop died after 6 years of use and I'm looking for a new one. I'm eyeballing the ones above but they're factors that make it hard for me to decide

A: Macbooks are great for productivity with pro software and battery is superior

B: Stealth is cheaper and hardware is better but battery is worse from what I hear.

I want to get 8 plus hours on a laptop and while I don't need gaming as I have a desktop it would be nice but my main objective is to use the device for school and video editing
