That and get a mac, but then I'd have to duck and dodge the flame throwers!
I've dropped every one of my mac laptops, each landing on a corner, with a nice "daily beater" dent on it. No operational issues. I get them refurbished to save some money. I can understand, despite the many reason to not get a mac (less GFX support, less versatility, premium price), the fact that 17" and 19" screens aren't available... thats a big fail on mac. I got the last of the 17" as a refurb. However my biggest gripe on the PC's is that, even after spending $2000 on one, you are getting non premium parts... it may just be a fan or power supply or even a firmware incompatibility with a component, but any of those can potentially stop your productivity. One youtube tech guy put it best: "I don't make money by saving money". His point was that he bought premium gear because he makes money being productive. Downtime means he's not earning. His point was to his audience who often tout their frugality. Thats fine, but he pointed out that getting premium gear doesn't mean you are an elitist, it means you need reliability. ECC memory, xenon processor, server grade over provisioning SSD... these all cost more because they are more reliable. 1Dx over the 5D over a rebel, again more reliable.
Best example of this I had a colleague that had a powerhouse of a laptop PC with uber fans, i7, workstation class nvidia... beautiful machine. He popped in a DVD to show me his reel and he got a blue screen of death. I had just gotten my $2150 17" refurb mac pro which he deemed too expensive. I mean the timing couldn't be more perfect. He claimed I paid too much by $400 by his calculations. I told him that had he been doing a client presentation of his reel, that $400 "savings" would have been peanuts compared to losing the client.
I've been out of the PC market for a while. But I hope for the many folks that need and want to stay in the windows world, that there is a PC manufacturer that you know uses premium components. That level of reliability is worth any premium price.
