Apple Laptop

Considering buying my first Apple Laptop. I'm not sure I want to spend that kind of money as my new I phone 11 isn't that great, although it takes amazing photos the rest is meh!

Any opinion on Apple laptops? The Apple I'm looking to build is way over 3k but "they" say it lasts longer and has less issues than others? IDK

My regular computer died and I'm now on an 2017 Dell-remind me to never ever buy another Dell. LOL

If not Apple than what other brand is reliable?

Thanks

Finn

If you’re just doing mainly office stuff, the entry level MacBook Air with M1 is a great deal at $999 (are we allowed to say that about Macs?)

Super light, good battery life and great performance, plus it is powerful enough to do basic video editing.

RAM is a little limited at 8GB for the entry level, that’s the one thing I’d consider bumping up if you plan to keep it long term. But unless you’re doing a ton of multitasking or using ram hungry stuff, you can prob get away with it.

If you’re going all out and want a powerhouse, I’d wait for the next revision of the M series MacBook Pro, with rumoured chassis redesign.

It really depends on what you're gonna be using it for. I have an Alienware laptop and i'm pretty happy with it aside from one issue with the keyboard i need to get fixed (luckily I got a protection plan for this sort of thing) but yeah. As @Kier stated, if you go the Apple route, don't buy anything other than the M1 model of laptops.

This PC will be used to gather and organize photos, bill pay and manage a few communities. Nothing too resource intensive. My friend recommended Alienware laptop as well but he's a big gamer and I'm not.

If you're doing mostly photo editing, photo roganizing and light web development & community running, you might be better suited with the Apple, yeah.
