I'm pretty sure my next laptop will not be a Mac.
Now you know why I'm insistent on remaining "trapped in the past" with my Core2 macbook running 10.6.8 - I tried an upgrade to 10.7.5, it runs but is horrifically, grindingly slow. (And I cloned/regularly-incremental-mirror the 10.6.8-plus-all-my-favorite-apps HD to an SSD, so if/when the former dies I'm good to go). Since I do all my post-SSE2 x86 code-dev on Linux, only real issue with the Mac is the various web browsers, where even the latest ersion of FF and PaleMoon which run under 10.6.8 have trouble with webpages using web-tech not existing 10 years ago.
