Does Lyft provide laptop for work? If so, Mac vs windows? Can we also use it for limited personal work? Reason, thinking to buy personal laptop, should I buy one? I am a windows person. Should I need to learn Mac? Reason, I saw people using Mac during interview.

    You should always have your own laptop in my opinion

  • Most people get macs. Some special users get windows if necessary for their role.
    Define personal use? Being on Facebook or Netflix is fine. Don't store your medical files, photo library or porn on it.

      Really? MS Office is serious work and requires a higher end PC?

      To put another way. If you need Ms office suite it's best on PC. And if you need PC, it has to be high spec or it won't work at all.

    If you get a Mac, you are stupid. These machines are the slowest most overrated and over priced piece of sh*t I have ever seen, besides the MacOS is pretty slow and sluggish compared to windows, the only think that is better is the fact that macos is a Unix based system, but windows is coming out with thier new win10 terminal and it looks so much better, besides there is no other IDE on the planet that is better than visual studio.
