First, let me say that I'm a lifelong Apple fanboi. I had an Apple II near my bunk bed growing up. I went through the Clone wars of the 90s and was always a loyal Mac User. I was using OS 9 when everyone else was on Windows XP.
I say with the deepest sadness that the current Mac lineup doesn't fit my needs anymore. I have 6 monitors and I'm unapologetic about it - yup I just like a lot of monitors - now let it go.
I can either buy a MacPro trash can that hasn't been upgraded in 3.5 years and that is a shining example of Apple embarrassment on my desk. Or I can buy some unnecessarily thin MacBook Pro that has nothing "pro" about it.
What do I do??
I'm not willing to give up on OSX yet. I use the CLI extensively but don't want Linux and Windows is incompatible to my software development workflow.
I've built my own Hackintoshes in the past but as my Mac is my source of income and salary - I couldn't put up with the downtime that came with OSX upgrades every month (which is necessary to keep up with what Xcode mandates)
Is there any off the shelf x86 laptop/desktop that just works with OSX?
Please help HN... you're my only hope
