    Macbook?

    So I'm buying a Macbook for Christmas (I'm not here to discuss whether I'm buying one or not- I hate Windows and OS X fits perfectly with my needs in a laptop). So, I would buy the Macbook Air '11.6 with 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of Storage and i5, but I think it's more profitable to buy, for the same price, the '13 Macbook Pro with 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of Storage and i5. The air is way too small, I think, and it my be to fragile (one fall and it'd be ruined, I believe). So, what do I get? Please only respond if you either have a Mac, have had a Mac or know about computers.

    What do you mean it cannot run .exe? How do I install programs without .exe files? Or how do I run games without .exe files? Me is confused.

    A mac is crap it cant do shit and you wont be able to run applications that are not special for mac (which is most)
    And i see you want to play games
    most games dont work on mac

    Haha I don't just want to play games but I wouldn't mind having Dota2 or Borderlands or Left 4 Dead in my Mac. Obviously my main aim is not to have a gaming laptop. I'd buy an Alienware or a MSI otherwise. I just need a small machine that is of the size of a netbook but runs like a good laptop (i. e. a Macbook), has a good processor (Intel i5) and has fair enough RAM (4GB)- which allows me to take it anywhere and gives me great media and creative potential. That's why I want a Mac... not to mention Windows OS sucks and Linux still doesn't convince me. Besides, the question is not 'do I buy a Mac?', it is; 'What Macbook do I buy?'

    Either you find OSX versions of the program you want or you're shit out of luck. This means a shit ton of games you would usually play on your PC are unavailable for macs. You could always run a bootcamp of windows 7 so you can have windows and osx.

    You'd have to be somewhat of a retard to want to buy a Macbook and not know that you cannot run the majority of applications on it without Boot Camp.

    I hate OSX period. It's such a rigid platform.
