Gloss displays vary somewhat. There are good ones and bad ones. I have three here. The first on my Apple Studio Display is pretty good and there is an anti-reflection filtering - no complaints. The second is the 14" MBP which is the same. No problems. But I also have a Dell Precision 7670 with the top end OLED option (Work laptop - I didn't pay for it!) and that is completely unusable for anything with a black background as I can see myself over the text! I have to run the background of everything white and turn the brightness up just to use it. Total turd.

But I'm mostly sitting in front of two Dell P-series displays now. They are a good compromise on price / performance.

One of my friends uses all Mac stuff and has several different Apple screens.  In an ideal environment they all look great, but I do not understand at all how he can put up with his Apple laptop screen in a typical not so well controlled laptop environment.  Compared to my cheap matte screen on my Lenovo Thinkbook, and my cheap Asus matte desktop screens, the Apple screens seem unusable to me.

Depends which one it is. If it's the cheaper end ones they are pretty terrible. That includes the pre-M1 MacBook Pros and the base model M1/M2 MacBooks. The Micro-LED one in the 14" and 16" M1/M2 macbooks is absolutely ridiculously good in comparison.

I have a Lenovo T14 gen 3 though myself and that's good enough!

I soon will be down to 3 including my laptop.  Instead of building a big NAS, I upgraded the storage on my workstation and am transferring everything from 2 other systems over to it.

I did convert to Mac on 2008, when I *wanted* to buy a PC but only Windows Vista was available, which was the worst thing ever.
So I did buy an iMac, and its been all Macs ever since, for personal and work use

I stayed on XP long enough to skip over Vista, 7, and 8.

I'm on this particular bandwagon as well. I've been in IT for two decades at this point; I was mostly a Mac user through the G4/G5 era, then went to Windows and Linux for both home and work when they transitioned to intel hardware. About 8 years ago I picked up a great deal on a used Macbook Pro, and it was my portable for a few years. Windows 11 and the increasing cloud integration/buggy bug fixes that I have to deal with at work, however, have forced (without much arm twisting I admit) to bounce Windows from my home. For roughly two years there hasn't been a Windows computer in my house...and life is good. :)
