It think it really depends on your goals. For me, the mac hardware usually
wins on screen, form-factor, build quality and weight. Performance is not
really a concern for me any more -- the laptop is either 100% fine (99% of
what I do) or hopelessly outclassed (machine learning on a GPU). I think
even if it's not your favourite option necessarily, the option of a Mac is
the benchmark -- the one to beat. What else are you getting for your money
with another option?
