That big screen is perfect for creative work or office productivity, so keep an eye on the pricing of this one. Already we've seen a decent price cut ahead of Black Friday, and it's a very good choice for content creators. For most people, however, it's overkill, and you'd be better off with the cheaper MacBook Air.
