    It'll be personal preference. Things like MATLAB or Octave/Maple for engineering exist on both Mac and Windows. Your university will also have computers with engineering software preinstalled anyway.

    I suppose if you want to game, get a Razer. If you're used to MacOS then get a Mac.

    I'll move this over to Technology and Computers

    Option 3: Dell XPS 13. I originally wanted to try out the Razer Blade Stealth as an alternative to the XPS but after seeing it, I was put off. I can't image I'd like the regular Blade either. But based on the information we have, it's impossible to say. And comparing Windows laptops to Apple laptops is dumb anyway, it largely comes down to whether you can run the software you need, which OS you prefer and how much you actually want to spend for performance.
