Depends on the specific model. Apple still offer dual core m3's, i5's and i7's with 8GB and a 256GB SSD for $1,300-$1,600 USD.and will less hang on heavy workload.
Is that for the hardware, or a combination of the hardware and the included OS?Thank you all for your advice. I also looked at the Consumer Reports website and they have ratings for many Windows computers and many Macs. The rating for "Owner satisfaction" is 3 out of 5 for all Windows machines and 5 out of 5 for all Macs. I decide to buy a Mac.
Windows PCs cover a wide range of price points, including budget units that will have comprises and cut corners by necessity to meet a certain budget. Apple only makes expensive, premium products. It doesn't surprise me that taking average across the whole range of Windows machines, which would include the budget units, would result in a lower score than for Macs.Thank you all for your advice.

Do people really still have issues with crashes on win 10? I can't remember the last time I had a full system crash/BSOD (other than one that's a result of tweaking/overclocking). Don't remember it being much of an issue with Win 7 or 8 either.It’s more stable. It simply doesn’t crash anywhere close to a Windows PC. In fact in 2.5 years of having my MacBook I have not once had a full system crash. I’ve had the odd app that needed a “Forced Quit” but that too has been rare. I have switched to using macOS at home and Windows 10 for work. It really is night and day.
I have literally just spent a full day and a half trying to fix my PC after it crashed every 15 minutes, I ended up having to fix windows from a USB then upgrade it back to the latest version after checking memory and disk, taking everything out, swapping my dimms around, swapping power cables etc. Was a nightmare. You’re very lucky never to have a windows crash they’re very common. I’ve left the same PC on for 2 weeks without issue but sometimes windows will be windows.In over several decades I have never had a single windows machine crash. If your windows is crashing you don’t know how to set it up. Lenix or macOS is not more reliable it’s just BS and it can’t be proved. What can be proved is that people don’t know how to configure windows plain and simple
