I’m a fan of Apple products for a long time! I love the ecosystem, the way everything works together without any problems.

I leaped faith and switch from a Macbook Pro to a Windows 10 machine. The reason I did this was because of work. I could choose a Macbook Pro again, but with the current Windows laptops on the market, you’ll get a lot more bang for your buck.
