I've been considering switching back to Mac because I'm burnt out by the Windows user interface (because of my job)
I'd think about the combo of machine and Scrivener (plus other apps) rather than simply Windows Scrivener vs macOS Scrivener.

That's great and all, but the OP was specifically asking the *Scrivener for Mac* vs. *Scrivener for Windows* experience, not a rehash of one of the greatest religious wars of the late 20th/early 21st century.

I’m not going to go into the Mac/Win argument in depth however the ‘don’t buy into’ mantra from some Win supporters ignores the fact that IBM and other major corporations have found and publicly stated that despite a slightly higher initial price the total cost of ownership including support on Macs is lower than equivalent performance PCs and productivity is higher.

I've been saving up to get a new laptop, and I'm torn between a particular Windows computer and a rose gold Macbook Air (because, c'mon, it's pink). I've been considering switching back to Mac because I'm burnt out by the Windows user interface (because of my job) and honestly when I write I just don't want to feel like I'm looking at a computer.
