    I would happily replace my current Precision laptop with this.

    I would happily pay the "steep" price of $70 to have a 4k screen.

    Which you'll never need on a 15" display.

    For that price I'd want both the Apple and the HP device although I wouldn't have any real use for either.

    15" macbook Pros are a good deal if they are less than $2,000. Good luck with that.

    I don't look at Apple products too closely because the 1st thing I notice is the sticker price and I always wind up with a severe migraine, serious arc eyes and a terrible taste in my mouth. Afterwards I usually end spending a fortune at the doctors.
    It's terrible (or great, it depends on how you look at it) when you're as allergic to Apples prices and gadgets as I am. :D

Maybe higher) version and while it does look nice, I've noticed that it mostly hinders my experience with the workstation. Virtually nothing is optimized for the screen resolution, which makes the text in programs found in adobe's creative cloud and solidworks, etc as small as a pin needle.
