Love Your Macbook, Lust For Windows 10: Choose Your Next Gorgeous Ultrabook – Forbes

Following on from discussions about the best new ‘pro’ laptops here on Forbes, it’s time to look at another impressive category of laptop machines, the ultrabooks. What works, what doesn’t, and which machine has everything you need.

One of the curious things I find about ultrabooks is that any purchasing decision needs you to consider what exactly you want from your computer. Brand loyalty is all well and good when getting more versatile ‘pro’ machines but the best fit for you may not always be with your favored brand.

The ultrabook format is less about grunt and more about grace. It’s about prizing portability over power. It’s about choosing the compromise that you want. Lets be clear here going for an ultrabook means thinking carefully about what you want from your laptop, and what you can afford to personally sacrifice.

Portability and access to information is an where Windows 10 performs well against macOS. Thanks to the use of the start menu widget boxes to display relevant information, you can switch on and see an immediate overview of your life before going into the apps and environment you need. Given the information that is available at a glance I would argue that Windows 10 provides a better snapshot of your digital life than macOS.
