I have a 2012 MacBook Pro that I'm using to type this on.
As a Windows/PC user mainly, I am used to my PC laptops and desktops start to feel slow and obsolete after a few years.
Yet, this laptop feels as good as ever. The display is still amazing, arguably better than my Surface Book 3 (Which I have here and yet find myself using the Mac when doing light work) and the GUI remains as smooth and responsive as ever.
That is one big benefit of MacBook Pros over every PC laptop I've ever used, they retain their value.
