    Haven't used windows in so long. I'm like grandma on it now. Keys are all different.

    Yes. We need to support / develop software and tools that are cross platform.

      OP
      Can the developers use only if the project requires?

      You can choose whatever computer you want as long as it is within the allotted budget. I use the $2k 13” MBP.

      I imagine it depends on the team and project. So in my team we have people who develop primarily on Mac or Windows because our product is developed in python. If another term develops a product entirely for windows then it wouldn’t make sense to use a Mac on such a team

    You can choose to get an mbp and many developers have desktop Lenovo computers and Mac pros if their work requires it due to cross platform support as stated above. I was resistant to windows when I joined but the surface book and windows 10 is actually really good. Download bash support for power shell you won’t be missing anything honestly.

    You can dual boot using parallels if you want. I agree with Redfin that it doesn’t make a ton of sense to get a MBP if you’re going to be working in a Windows environment most of the time.
