devRant help me!

I'm getting a lovely little tax return and am in the middle on what laptop to buy.

MacBook Pro (I like MacOS and build quality, fight me)
or
PixelBook (I'm a google fanboy and love ChromeOS so once again... Fight me)

What do you think would be the best option keeping in mind the PixelBook will run Linux apps as well...

    @ScribeOfGoD I'm keeping an open mind but if I was to get a windows device I'll probably wait for the surface go to come out (I want super good build quality hence the choice of Mac and pixelbook)

    Macbook hands down. You get the added advantage of being able to make ios appa if you ever need it.

    A BSD style workstation wich will last for years and run smooth af? Yes please.

    I have two of these babies and I fucking love em. They have never......EVER let me down or had made me look bad when doing a presentation or showing something.

    When presenting a product it helps to have a speedy system that does not b.s with you.

    Do you need a laptop? I say this because I don’t own one, 100% of my work I do at my desk, hence a desktop and a lot less back, shoulder and neck ache. Everything else is covered by my portable devices.

    @helloworld Need, no. Want, yes.

    Just the ability to pick it up and go out and do things, means I don't really have to give up anything

    Do Lenovo Carbon X1. Some insane speed and you can go linux.

    If these are the only options you want to consider then I'd go with the MacBook.
    If you do want to consider something else, assus zenbook and a PlayStation. 😉

    @dontbeevil they actually already lost a couple of these and have already increased the warranty on the keyboards to 4 years.
    I have a MacBook Pro from work and one of the keys got stuck after the first month. Fortunately I managed to fix it with an air compressor.

    I am quite happy with mbp (got it for a year now) and it did a good job for me :)

    At the moment you should not buy a MacBook. Just wait until Apple presents the new models, this can't be too long.

    @BreadTrooper When are we expecting them to reveal the new models?

    As long as i can get the touch bar and 4 USB-c ports on a 13 inch I'll be happy.

    At the moment there are no dates, but I think we can expect that they release this year or at least announce them
