I’ve been hauling around my Lenovo W520 laptop for almost 7 years. The sound no longer works and I’ve replaced the battery. The sound does work through headphones or through the DisplayPort. It was great powerful laptop that did everything I threw at it. But it was overdue for a replacement, so I after being a lifelong Windows user I decided to pick up a Macbook Pro 15 (2017). I’ve always admired the Macbook’s design and build quality and this one is no exception.
It’s been a few days and so far it’s great. The screen and battery on this machine is amazing. I’m planning to get VMWare Fusion to run Windows 10, so I’m not missing out on my Windows specific apps and games. This is probably one of my most expensive computers I’ve bought, and I’m hoping it’ll last just as long as my Thinkpad did, and if it does I feel it’ll be worth every penny of it.
