    Win 10 Pro (x64), OSX 10.11

    I use both Mac and PC. As far as I am concern Mac and PC are just a part of tools. Some prefer left hand tool and some right hand.
    My goal is to make best of each environment!

    I agree, right tool for the job. It's like using the right programming language to get a task done. Some are great but they just don't fit the task at hand and the same applies to hardware/OS's.

    I'm not sure whether you think OSX or Windows is left handed, but left handedness is often seen as less desirable and associated with stupidity, criminality, being unlucky and various other undesirable traits Bias against left-handed people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I only use one calendar these days, but in the past when I was using multiples I used the same service. Just easier for me to manage and that was with Apple as I was Mac only then. I still only use Apple's out of habit I suppose.

    On a daily basis I use, in order of preference, a Pixel Chromebook, Yoga 2 Pro and MacBook Pro. In order of speed of operation and solidness of performance it is Pixel, MacBook Pro and Yoga 2 Pro. W10 on the Yoga is just twitchy enough to irritate me too often. Oddly W10 on my SP2 is just fine, I just don't use it much these days. Combination of smaller screen and much older eyes I suppose...

    Yep, but one cost twice than the other.

    The Surface Book may cost more (not sure it is twice as much - that is a bit of an exaggeration) but it sure does look good. If you prefer the MacBook that is of course your choice.

    Yeah, at face value, a Mac may seem dramatically more pricey. When you actually start comparing apples to oranges (similar speeds, memory, etc) they are more similar than most think. The big plus is that when you have a product problem, with Apple, you can actually get to a human being who is fairly well versed in the combination of software and hardware, as they make and support both! Of course, gamers abhor Macs because they are generally not designed to be toys for non productive individuals! I use computers to actually accomplish productive tasks, not to vegetatively immerse myself in some fantasy land!

    And There You Have It!

    And that is so true. When you compare the MacBooks (pro and air) to the SurfacePro and Surface Book, or even one of the other premium level laptops/hybrids, the prices get really close to each other. The build quality really comes into play at that end of the market too.
    Hell, even the Pixel Chromebook at $995 starting price is right up there too.
    Apple never was interested in the gamer market instead preferring to hit a bit wider target. They do OK for the casual computer gamer. But for me and gaming, give me my PS3/4 and Xbox One!!

    Yep, if I actually wanted to play games and "waste" what little time I have in this life, I'd buy one of the "toys" you referenced, but when I need to get a "job" done, I want a "machine" capable of the task! One of the first things I do when I get a confuser is uninstall all games, including much of the software dedicated solely to making those games run in "amazingly" life like ways! This helps free up resources, etc. I vastly prefer "real-life" itself to "life-like"!

    If Windows wasn't so targeted towards "kids, old & young" we'd have many fewer viruses initiated by wise-a$$es simply for the pleasure of messing with folks! Let's face it, children, even poorly educated ones, can be pretty darned smart and imaginative in how they fork with the world around them!

    Thanks For Understanding,
