    How about going back to Windows 7 then? The "forced" upgrades to Windows 10 and nagging to upgrade to Windows 10 are gone in Windows 7 now.

    Yes, that's a possibility I'm considering after looking at the crazy price of Macs with their tiny screens

    One option is to set the Active Hours so reboots won't be done during those times. Or set it to a metered connection so you can pick when you want to do updates.

    The macbook screens are 12". These are ideal for portability. Macbook Pros offer 13" and 15" screens, as well as more power and performance.

    While prices seem high, they offer great monitors and pci express SSD's which can really move some data. Their touchpads are top notch. They go to sleep and wake up faster than any PC I have ever used.

    So, at the end of the day they aren't really thwt expensive, they simply don't offer low cost bargain options.

    Windows 7

    After dealing with multiple update FUs on client's computers, I disabled the Windows Update Service on my machine. When I want to update, I'll turn it on. I prefer to let others Beta test the latest updates.

    The odds of an unpatched system being compromised seem to be much lower than the odds of the system being trashed by an update.
