$1328 budget

I thinking getting this model Apple-

1.8GHz Dual-Core Processor with Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz with the following spec:

1.8GHz dual-core 5th-generation Intel Core i5 processor
Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory
128GB SSD storage1


And do u think I should rather get a better windows10 laptop with the same amount of money?


- Iím didnít do any much video designs
- surf net, ms office like PowerPoint words excel
- investing platforms only
- have photoshop fireworks software for fast editing of images sometimes
- gaming like dota only, if above Mac canít support then maybe I wonít dota anymore liao LOL

General rule of thumb is Apple products really not value for money.

Acer Swift 3 is much better value. First link is for the 15.6 inch variant - costs $1165, weighs 1.7kg-, with MX150 graphics, while second link is the 14 inch variant (slightly cheaper at $1098, weighs 1.45kg). Both versions of the Swift 3 are vastly better, spec-wise, as compared to the one you listed.

One thing I'll say is that any Apple laptop trackpad will trump over any Windows laptop trackpad.

Can consider Asus 530N 15.6" also. Asus is generally better than Acer all round.

Then it won't be thin and light.

You've to prioritize what you need.

Indeed you can get gamer-class notebooks with GTX 1050 graphics, but it won't be thin and light. Then there's also the matter of battery life and portability.

This is a more expensive notebook, but if you can part more money, it has a lot more to offer in design, build and features:-
