    MS Surface is a fantastic device, cost much less than Mac, more power, better usability, lots more options. However, if you wanna run a studio, and record professional music, i think Mac has better choices. It really comes down to what you want to use it for

    I agree with you but it is not cheap either unless you are satisfied with core i5, 8GB and 256 GB SSD ... anything above that becomes expensive. Great device though.

    You bring up a valid point and that is why I am on the fence. Iran Inter Esteghlal brought up a good point, the price of the Macs. When the 2018 Macs come out, they will finally have the option for the 32 GB of Ram and I7 quad core. To bad if you want those features, you are going to spend close to $3,000 or $2,800. For the next best model, you are going to spend $2,000. Now I don't want to be a DJ as CM jan pointed out but I would like to do Music Editing however, PC now has some decent programs. The benefit of the Dell XPS is for $1,000 I can get the job done. I was thinking for now I could get the XPS and save up for a few years, then I can get a Macbook Pro, when I have the means to do so. Then, I can use the XPS as a back up laptop. Thank you very much guys for answering my questions, all of you I think I am going to stick with the XPS THIS TIME. I also like one new feature on mac book pro's, they will have a touch keyboard but gain very $$$$$. The Dell XPS will get the job done and it will not break the bank. CM jan pointed it out you can do music editing with a cromebook or a PC, Dell XPS, Microsoft Surface etc and at half the cost. Also, another cost is the cost of the music editing software I am looking at for a Macbook pro, costs almost as much as a Dell XPS $700. Of course they have one for $200 and $300 but the $700 one does everything. I just want to edit and record music for myself, put it on youtube, maybe share some Slavic, Persian and German folks songs. I not looking to be DJ Team Melli.

    Iran Inter Esteghlal, I never had any good luck with HP's and I read on forums they can be problematic. Of course it was not a Spectre but I had problems with a few HP laptops in the past. Pooya jan if you don't use it for gaming, an I5 8 GB and 256 gigs of hard drive is really all you need. The XPS I am looking at for the $1,000 entry level model has an I3 but it is a 7th gen intel quad core 8 GB and probably 256. I really do not need anything more powerful than that if you want to get the 16 GB, that is going to cost you. It comes with a good graphics card, excellent battery life and it is a 15 inch notebook so it is the perfect size. I also love the quality of the keyboard on the xps. Here is a review of the XPS 2017 very impressive machine, even the base model will get the job done and the best part is it does not break the bank. Not much has physically changed, except I love how they upgraded the thin bezzel infinity edge screen is now in glass and not in cheap plastic.

    Nothing beats an Asus ROG laptop. Been using mine for 5 years now and it's been a total beast all the way. It is literally a beast (both in size, weight and capability).

    It's not everyday you can convince me a laptop can stay up to the task for 5 years (with my insane gaming and video editing usage), but this one has and I still have no need to replace it.

    You can' go wrong with XPS but Surface Pro is a different device. You can carry it with you while doing serious work.

    I agree but it is too heavy.

    Heavy it is indeed. I have noticed there's rarely ever a need for a laptop to move. Most people just put it somewhere and use tablets or phones while moving around.

    Mine is connected to two giant 27" monitors. It's essentially a very powerful desktop that can travel with me. I take mine on road trips in my RV and it's simply awesome to have my entire home computing package with me thousands of miles away from home!

    @Bache Tehroon jan I love the ASUS laptop but like Iran Inter Esteghlal pointed out, it is too heavy AND very expensive. I just looked at the prices and their entry level ones start at $1,399, almost $1500 with tax. I can get an XPS and still be in that $1,000 budget I have been looking at. Iran Esteghlal Inter, I was actually considering the Microsoft Surface Pro as well. The entry level is the same price as the XPS. I like that it is more portable, you can carry it while doing serious work but the XPS is not a heavy laptop. It is only a few pounds bigger than the Macbook pro and that is primarily because their charger is pretty bulky compared to apples. Right now XPS and Surface Pro are really 1 and 1A not even 1 and 2. They are a bit different, XPS is more of a traditional laptop where as surafce pro is more like a tablet but it is very powerful and you can do quite a bit with it and i love the portability. Both have their upsides the one major upside is I LOVE the XPS's keyboard it is like you are typing on a cloud, it's like you are gliding on the keyboard. One more thing is I might as well wait until January because by then, no matter what I decide, the 2018's will be available. It's only a few more months anyways so might as well wait.

    This is out of my budget but for those of you ballers, if you have $1,800 to spend and want a serious gaming laptop, check out the MSI GS 60, very impressive machine. Even an entry level MSI notebook will set you back $1,500. Again the name of the game is keep it to a budget of $1000 so for me 1 and 1A are the XPS and the Surface Pro. I must say I am very impressed though with this awesome gaming laptop but expect to pay Mac level prices. Did anybody here try an MSI just out of curiosity? I figure, rather than paying $2,000 for a gaming laptop, just get a good laptop that can be used for gaming, like an XPS and buy a PS4 pro, it will be much cheaper than that top of the line laptop. I can get that XPS for $1000 and that PS4 pro for like $400, with tax around $1,500, still significantly cheaper than a $2000 notebook.
