Who in the fuck actually buys windows? Most people get an OEM version preinstalled anyway, and those of us who build our own have the resources to get it free anyway.

Where did I say OEM windows was free? Are you surprised businesses don't actually sell things for free or what was the point?

Regardless, my original point is that windows is significantly more cost effective.

Also many of my professors use it, so very regularly it has been a significant benefit to use the same OS.

It depends what you do. Linux is niche OS, its good at areas where it has software developed for it, but sucks at all other areas (like any other OS does).

Well, I do mostly scientific computing and a bit of image recognition now.
In one class about solving sparse systems of linear equations, the setup to complete the homework assignments, clearly was meant for Linux machines and even the TA had to install virtual box to get it running.

I am not sure what display that Dell originally came with, but I suppose it's safe to assume that it was dogshit even back then. That said, the original Unibody Macbook from 2008 had extremely shitty TN Panels that gave horrible eye cancer.

Still, the MacBook beats that shitty Dell hands down. The Touchpad alone would have been worth the extra shekeles. Remember that it was Apple who introduced large Touchpads that were finally fucking usable (inb4 muh clit mouse, that's unintuitive as fuck unless you're a virgin cocksucking nerd).

I hate Apple as much as the next vir/g/in, but these comparisons are fucking terrible.
Even these days, a similary specced ThinkPad (8GB mem, quad core CPU, 1440p display) costs around the same as a MacBook does.
The MacBook has OSX and a non ULV CPU on its side, the ThinkPad has upgradeability going for it. The upgradeability alone would make me go for the ThinkPad at current pricing since I really don't give a fuck if I'm on Windows or OSX (inb4 lunix, that shit belongs on headless devices and VM hosts)

I'd rather run a non-apple UNIX (ie BSD/Linux) on PC hardware. It's the most reliable and sustainable solution. How difficult is this to understand?
