Need expert advice, this or Windows? Purpose is mostly study related (I'm joining this fall, might use applications related to computer degree). Still debating if I can survive with Windows or need a Mac?

Or by Windows 10 machine for 1/4 the price with the same specs
You may have to take a bigger picture look at things. How long will that Win 10 machine last? Macs generally last longer and hold their value. What's your churn rate for a Win 10 machine vs a Mac? What's the total cost of ownership. YMMV, but there's a good chance that the Mac is cheaper than the Win 10 machine at that perspective.

My current Mac is 6 years old and it is a testament to the quality of Apple's products. I'll be purchasing one of these 2020's as soon as I can. No Windows 10 machine I know of either at work or from friends has lasted longer than several years.

I disagree. My 6 years old Dell XPS desktop also working strong. Quality computer products should all last that long, no matter mac or PC.

XPS's are also similar in price and build quality compared to a Mac.

I have a mid-2012 macbook air, still going strong (use it regularly). I also have a 2010 Studio XPS, quite slow for today but still functional with WIndows 7/linux.

I have a 12 year old AMD Athlon based windows PC that still works just as well as day 1. I recently swapped in an SSD and you'd never know it wasn't new.

Our windows 8 work PCs are all 3rd/4th gen i3 machines with ddr3 and they work perfectly fine with the graphic settings turned down. Longevity is definitely ymmv and the misconception that apple PCs are better is almost never a fair comparison to a comparably configured PC. I.E. a $2k PC vs a $2k Apple, not a $500 PC vs a $2k Apple (because, duh).

I'm typing this from a 2013 MacBook Pro. These things are made to last.

What about the new A series chip that will be replacing intel by the end of the year (or early next year) - does that make this a doorstop in 6 months?

2011 here. I wish HD and memory are still upgradable because that would last me another 10 years. I'm actually looking to upgrade due to "want" rather than "need"

I don't think it makes it a doorstop, but the chip transition is, IMO, an important consideration. I'm looking for a new high end computer to last me 5-6 years, so I'm holding off for the Apple Silicon MacBooks.

Yes, agreed - maybe a bit over the top. However, longevity it one of the greatest attributes of the Mac world, and I'm guessing they may not hold value as well after the transition and eventually there could be compatibility issues as new programs are developed. This is a big enough shift in technology that it may be worth the wait if you have some patience.

Or look at the actual specs. 500nit, color accurate 16:10 screen. Amazing speakers. Amazing battery life. 4 thunderbolt ports. Yes even touchbar, which I hate but still costs money. There's more to specs than just the CPU.

Windows if you plan on gaming at school (dorms and class) while coding when you have to, like most of us have.

You should be able to manage and troubleshoot a Windows machine especially if you are a CS major.

You can use Virtual Machine to run Apple and Linux OSs as well so you wont lose anything.

I prefer Macs for photo and video editing but you didnt say thats what you would be doing.

PS. I am not an expert but I did stay at Holiday Inn last year.
