    Honestly, I don't remember the last time I saw a windows based laptop except at my college, and even there is a strong majority of MacBooks. I know people say that more windows laptops are being used, and I'm sure that's true, but it's hard to believe when you see nothing but MacBooks. What about in your area? What types of laptops do you mostly see? And what do we think is the reason for this? Is it that people want to seem "cool" by using a MacBook? Do people have some preconceived motion about windows laptops?

    I should note that Iive in California. So maybe that has something to do with it?

    Everyone I work with in the professional world has a windows laptop. Several execs at our company have surfaces. Out of nine people in a meeting I had this week, one person had a mac, the rest were windows. Generally running windows 7 though. Engineering consultants that work with us have windows laptops as well.

    Interesting. Could be just where I live I guess. I do notice it's maybe mostly writers and tech journalists using macs.

    That makes sense. You won't see a single writer or tech journalist around here in Cleveland, OH.

    Not only do I see Windows laptops everywhere. A few of my doctor's are using Surface Pro 3's. One even let me mess around with it. I don't really have use for a tablet, though as my Nokia Lumia 1320 is basically a mini-tablet.

    I once spotted a couple of engineers running Visio in Windows 7 on their Macbooks at Starbucks.

    I barely ever see anything else but Windows powered notebooks. Every once in a while I come across some people using MacBooks, but even most of them are running Windows. I have yet to see a single Chromebook.

    Near DC, laptops of all sizes, OSes, walks-of-lifes are around.

    More Macs than their marketshare percentage would indicate.

    Yes, In fact I would love for someone to name one productive thing they do on a MacBook other than Blog, Post, or Edit YouTube Vids...

    Most laptops here are Windows, but almost none use Windows 8. And even when the laptop comes with W8, they just install Windows 7 right away.

    Here in greece I always see windows laptops (usually 7, and sometimes 8.1), but I haven't even seen once a mac or let alone chromebook. In my university if we have a presentation, students bring and use a win7, 8.1 laptop

    But I have seen tablets with google, or ipads.

    Windows Laptops might start getting seen more in the wild now that HP have got the Stream 13, sure it's a none Touchscreen Windows 8.1 with big Laptop but it's in the Chromebook price range.

    Everyone at my company has Windows 8 laptops. 95% of business users I see have windows laptops. My kids have chromebooks for school, but use windows laptops at home for Skype, games, email, etc. I see macbooks when I go to a coffee shop or bookstore or at the airport.

    I'm a college student, and I see tons of Windows laptops. However, in my town, there seems to be an extraordinary affinity to Apple, so overall, you'll see MacBooks everywhere (as well as iPhones and iPads).

    Exclusively Windows in Romania. 50-50 between W7 and W8. Never seen a Chromebook. I think I've seen a Macbook once in my life. They are easily available to buy but no one is buying them.

    PS: The question of this thread will be seen as a joke by the majority of the world.

    Out in public, I see mostly all laptops are Windows and an occasional apple laptop. These look like they are apparently doing "work" but more and more I see people reading on phones mostly but some tablets and a chrome book once in a while.

    You have the world's most obnoxious sports writer in the entire world in Cleveland. Brian Windhorst from ESPN aka LeBron James's jock carrier.

    I can't stand him either. Terry Pluto from cleveland.com is good though.
