I would consider a Chromebook with Linux before I’d switch to Windows. Indeed, unless Apple gets its MacBook act together I may end up doing just that in the next 3-5 years, when I’m due for my next upgrade.
I know a couple of people who switched from the Mac to Windows recently, because their employers would provide them with Windows machines but not Macs. Both of them are unhappy with the change and already coming back to Mac. Neither of these people are in any way fanboys, or part of the Apple/Mac community, or Apple enthusiasts, or tribal about products in any way. They view their computers and phones and tablets as appliances to get things done.
I recently bought a 2018 MacBook Pro and I’m fine with it. I primarily use an external keyboard, but I do use the internal keyboard several days out of the month, when I travel, and it’s fine. I do wish it was QUIETER, and that’s a significant complaint.
The USB-C transition was a pain for a couple of weeks but then I got the cord/dongle situation sorted out and it’s fine.
However, as others on this thread said, if you’re unhappy with your MacBook Pro and have decided to switch, then just do it. Apple products are just products we buy, it is not a tribe or nation that we belong to.
I used DOS and Windows from 1981-2007, when I switched to the Mac.
I used Palm products for 10 years and then switched to the iPhone when that came out.
And I used an Android tablet for two years, rather than an iPad, and I liked that just fine too.
I devoted as much energy to fiddling with and customizing each of those products as I now do with my Apple products.
None of these switches were identity changes — not like immigrating to a foreign country, or changing religion or sexual orientation or gender. They’re just products. Stuff we buy.
The preceding is the mirror image of the rant I use when I get fed up with Android fanboys bleating about Apple “sheeple.” Apple products are products I buy because the enjoyment and productivity I get from them offsets the higher cost. When that equation changes I will switch. And I expect it will likely change in my lifetime, that’s just how business works.
