If the new machine doesn't do what you need it to do, don't buy the darn thing!!!
If non of the Apple range do what you want for a price you can afford, then don't buy an Apple.....
Apple being better than PC blah blah is just nonsense, they all have their strengths and weaknesses.
Anyone who claims Apple are better build quality than PC is just plain naive - the Toughbook has already been mentioned. You can virtually drive your car over a Toughbook and throw it in a river, I wonder which of the Apple range could survive that?
On the other hand, the Toughbook is (arguably) a pig ugly lump and would make your living room look like a garage, where as an Apple is quite pretty.
Sadly there are millions of brainwashed fanbois who will blindly pay significantly more for something that does not do what they want than something that does, simply because it's new and from Apple and looks pretty.
