Mourning Apple's war against sockets? The 2018 Mac mini should be your first port of call

No, it's not the only reason. The biggest reason is that you just want to get you friggin' work done but still need access to commercial software like Adobe or for whatever reason.

You can piss and moan about 'tricks' all you want, but at the end of the day what matters is this: I can measure the uptime on my Mac in months. Windows? A few days if you're lucky. Especially with Windows 10 and Microsoft's update nonsense, you get the added benefit that when your machine reboots it may not come back up again at all.

Running MacOS in VMWare completely misses the entire point. You'd still have Windows underneath so you'd be dealing with the worst of BOTH worlds.

I know this is difficult for you to believe, but some of us use computers to get WORK done, and not to have a wank while reading the tech specs like a porn magazine.
