Mac OSX is not worth it and the hardware is grossly overpriced. Dell or Lenovo are much more powerful, innovative, and better deals.

Running a campus with some 3,000 computer including 300+ virtual desktops, the horrors are the 100 or so Macs. Unless you want to buy a separate management system they are hopeless. So we require anyone who buys one from department funds to get a three year warranty so they can drag the things to the Apple genius bar. We don't touch them.

iOS is what makes Apple money. Because I use iPad with my Lenovo laptop for VR I have an iPhone and Apple watch. They work but boringly.
