I don’t treat my laptops kindly, at least that’s what HP, Acer and Dell were telling me. My laptops would die after 1 or 2 years (motherboard failure).

But I stopped buying Windows laptops 8 years ago. That’s when I bought my current MacBook 2008 (2 battery replacements, 8GB memory upgrade, SSD upgrade) that I still use for the occasional work.

** The build quality of mac is indeed extraordinary. **

Full disclosure: I can’t run big Rails or Webpack projects without some frustration.
