  2. The mac book pro will never be the best laptop one can get. The one advantage that apple has is its unique os for casual work and casual and service to some extent(they do not like people who are DIY who will replace parts without them knowing) but the price on them is never worth the hardware costs compared to the windows counterpart. buying the apple product is all about sleekness, customer service and the OS.
