Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?

    Yes to Sketch. Yes to Mac OSX.

    If the majority of your colleagues are working with those constraints, then you should too.

    Look at a repurposed Macbook Pro - the Retina 2012 range are kick-ass and you can pay to bulk them up a bit should you need that extra RAM/Storage etc. Don't need to have a super shiny (useless touch-bar) version.

    Switch and don't look back. Then come back to this thread and thank us ;)

      Thank you :) Yeah, maybe it makes more sense to buy an old Macbook Pro rather than the new one which has so many cons.

        I used a 2013 macbook air for the longest time and it worked fine for the most part. The only bottleneck was the RAM (I had 4GB). Pretty much any mac post 2012 should be fine as long as you have an SSD and 8+ GB or RAM
