    Personally I would go for the HP, becuase I hate macOS. But for your case it depends if you prefer Windows or macOS.

    So people basically buy a Mac for the OS? It's crazy, you get a better CPU, GPU and bigger SSD with the HP, so why on earth would I buy the MacBook? In fact, the HP Envy even looks better. Apple should be ashamed, and same goes for Dell, they are basically trying to rip people off. BTW, I saw this very cute Lenovo desktop, strange that HP, Acer and Asus have not yet come up with such a small design. But apparently it has a noisy fan.

    Also for the preceived build quality and of course, a lot of people hate Windows. The funny thing is, that if you have a look at Louis Rossmann's YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl2mFZoRqjw_ELax4Yisf6w, you will see that Macs often have serious design flaws.

    Yes I read about it, that MacBooks had some hardware flaws. I've been playing with the macOS, but I'm sticking with Windows, it's still better, and I just love the HP laptops, I'm going to buy either the 13 or 14 inch.

    Actually, there are more apps available for the Mac than I thought, so I can see myself using it. But I just don't think Apple hardware (desktops, laptops and smartphones) is worth it, not at these ridiculous high prices.

    "Ridiculous" is the right word.

    High Prices true. Unless you know someone from Apple. See my signature, also included Extended Apple Care, the Magic Trackpad and Mouse and the USB SuperDrive all brand new, $1,100.00 Once in a lifetime deal for me that I couldn't pass up. And I Love it! :D :D
