The reason I ask is fairly simple. It's a switch which seems to make sense the more I think about it.
I currently have an average personal laptop which I abuse when coding. It only has 8GB RAM, and I use most of it often. Had the whole thing freeze a few times this week.
I use Ubuntu day-to-day, but the available devices with it installed are too small for me (all 13") and are limited to 16GB RAM.
I'm considering a MacBook Pro (16"), a It's not Windows. It's got a great spec, and should last a while. Problem is, I've never been an Apple guy.
