Here are some quick benchmarks for my $700 Lenovo Y700 vs. the $1500 "low-end" MacBook Pro I talked about Friday:

i5-6360U vs. i7-6700HQ

Remember, for $850, you've got 24 gigs of RAM and 128 Gigs of SSD (plus a terabyte of spinning platter storage) on that Lenovo.

I just don't get it. The Mac Tax is Back. Maybe the more expensive version will outperform at single-core tests, and I could rationalize banking one, but at $1800, $2000 for the 16 gigs of RAM, ewww. I guess I'm destined for Xamarin on PC for the foreseeable future, and will simply hold out for a new mini (ha).
