    I can get the dell 17" i7-10875H (16MB Cache, up to 5.1 GHz, 8 cores RTX™ 2060 6GB GDDR6 with Max-Q 64GB DDR4-2tb ssd m2 3Y Premium Support Plus and Onsite Service
    for £2500

    The 16" MBP, same spec with apple care for about £4300

    • Sorry dell is £3k, Mac £4400craigatkinson
    • I have the same GPU in my laptop and while the MaxQ versions are tuned down compared to the desktop ver. the RTX cores make it a better card than AMD ones.face_melter
    • Plus you get better driver support. Do Apple even allow you to update the drivers for their kit outside of OS updates? I can't remember.face_melter
    • no I don't think socraigatkinson
    • I recall using rickety official 'test' nVidia drivers when I had my iMac six years ago. They couldn't relase them as final because of Apple's update policy.face_melter
    • So what the hell is this thread even about if you already made up your mind?monospaced
    • far from it mono — looking for user experience. Trying to justify to myself the extra 40% to buy Apple, again...craigatkinson
