Can everyone explain me why should i prefer to buy Apple Laptop instead of gaming MSI or Asus Predator, because seconds are too powerful and useful?

Apple is regarded as more durable plus less susceptible to viruses.

Because for anyone with no use for a graphics card or high core x86 processor, MacBooks could potentially be far more compelling options, especially the M1 variants.

They make my work easier, plus my work pays for them anyway lol. I'm just used to it. All the devs seem to be on Macs and Ubuntu servers these days.

Pick a Microsoft Surface book, it's like the best of both worlds. Really sleek and portable and powerful as well and can be used as a tablet. I would suggest getting one with dedicated graphic cards i.e GTX 1060 etc.

It is also the worst of both worlds though, costing about as much as an equivalent laptop and tablet combined.

Yes but much better then some overpriced Apple laptop... If OP is looking for a Macbook style gaming machine then the top tier Surface book 3 models would do.

Your choices must depend on your own needs. If you are a avid gamer only, then Go for MSI with Ryzen CPU. AMD is a much better choice than an Intel these days. If you a casual laptop user just doing normal stuff such as watching YouTube videos and stuff, get the Apple normal, non M1 based laptop. Never buy any first generation products, as you will a beta tester for them, wait for the Apple M series chip to mature and get better support for native x86 apps which is yet to fixed by Apple's Rosetta translator. Now the choice is yours, choice wisely

OP isn't really looking for anything, they're just trying to be edgy.

And as fun as the tech behind the SB line is, they are overpriced in of themselves- you need to spend two grand to get away from integrated graphics, and that only gets you a 1650 MaxQ. Somebody looking for a gaming machine with MacBook styling would not gravitate towards a Surface Book when there are far more reasonable alternatives that provide superior graphics horsepower and still with premium styling in a portable package.

Honestly, I'd rather just keep onto my Surface Pro and use the money I'd have spent on a Surface Book on a proper gaming PC. The price for the specs you're getting is way to high, and as a tablet, it's probably too big and heavy (my Surface Pro is already a little bit cumbersome, I can't imagine using something heavier), which defeats the purpose of getting one in the first place.

M1 macbooks are probably the best overall package of size, weight, screen, speakers, mics, performance, heat and battery life. Also nice how they work with other apple products.
