I had an old Macbook that was still running great. But then a few years back I guess something changed within the Mac OS X so I was unable to continue upgrading the OS. Eventually I couldn't even use Safari or other basic programs (they required updates that I could not install on my OS). I was pissed so I went back to Windows. This current laptop is a Lenevo, which I thought had a good reputation. But I've had more problems with it than my old cheap $300 Toshiba Satellite.
