Subject: Laptop recommendation
A good problem: I'm starting a new job on Monday and I need to choose which
laptop to use. The choice is between:
- 13" Macbook Air
- 13" Macbook Pro Retina
- Lenovo ThinkPad T440p
- Lenovo ThinkPad T540
All of their documentation is currently in Markdown in various GitHub
repositories. Presumably, we'll need some other tools at some point (maybe
Confluence?) but not for a while probably.
I'd personally--strongly--prefer a Macbook.
