Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?

    Honestly, you should.

    MacOS is great in many ways. Organisation, productivity...etc. Also it's fairly easy to use I think, you'll find that a lot of thing make sense. Except for a few keyboard shortcuts.... you won't be spending a huge amount of time adapting to it.

    I've been using Sketch for all design projects I've had, freelance, at the agency. Everything. It's the most solid tool for interface design and you should get started with it. Also the available plugins make your life a lot easier. The whole feels a lot more flexible than Photoshop or Illustrator. (I don't know about Figma, Affinity, nor Adobe XD, and honestly don't feel the need to go looking elsewhere...)

    As for what Mac you should be getting, I think if you can get started with the older version of the Retina MacBook Pro, mine is from the mid-2012 and still doing everything just as good.

    I hope this helps you. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to reach out. :) Cheers.
