The most important thing is just to get writing.
I recommend WORD, GOOGLE PAGES, PAGES, & SCRIVENER for writers

    It is exact my point, regardless which computer you use, your tool is Word. I tried using pure Mac writer tools and soon I got stuck since Word doesn’t understand their format.

    I am torn as well only because I like both writing and pc gaming. Emulated old mmoโ€™s are a long time hobby. I have never really used macs except for an old iPad and iPhones. Pcโ€™s I have used included a custom built system that lasted 10 yrs hard drive died I was so sad :(. An Acer nitro 5 laptop motherboard overheated ๐Ÿฅต and the computer was never the same after it got repaired so asked for my money back. 95 degrees Celsius way too hot. A Lenovo yoga so many dead pixels sent it back. And HP x360 which has been fairly good but does feel kinda warm after long use. Today I was tempted to buy another computer as I want to get writing again but i donโ€™t want to go through the same hassles of unreliable laptops that one are not right on purchase or die from overheating after a few weeks.

    So long story short I am yet to buy another computer or laptop and still on the search. I have done much research and nearly bought a Mac with the new m1 chipset but kinda now just considering my options.

    I also think the Microsoft laptops look fairly good albeit the aspect ratio of the display is the same as a Mac 3:2 so black bars when viewing YouTube videos.

    Plus Mac track pads feel odd after so long using a pc. One button I guess I am not used to it. ๐Ÿ™

    One thing I do know is I just want to write but on what device. I trust pencil or pen and paper way more too afraid of loosing my work. ๐Ÿ™
