    Well, a Macbook Pro is a nice laptop but a bit expensive compared to DELL that I've been using now. Its actually a trusted brand based on design, support and performance.

    I am not much of a hardware person and am not sure what I should be looking for. It would be a computer that is strickly dedicated to Access database, VBA programming, and probably some large excel files and macro creation.

    My only stipulation is that I do NOT want a Win8 computer. I have been looking on amazon, but I really have no idea what to do when it comes to hardware... Any ideas?

    Thanks!!
    Mac is best option. Check this one https://www.apple.com/in/macbook/specs/

    Yup, my sister-in-law has a MacBook Pro. That's also good. By the way, i forgot to mention that aside from Sony Vaio laptop that I'm using, a Dell brand can be also recommended. My husband prefers it very much.

    Yes, a MacBook Pro is also good. I forgot to mention that my sister is using DELL with windows 7 and its performing good also.

    Also, since you are not the OP, you should start your own thread and reference this thread.
    You will get more reads (hits) than a thread that is old and not your thread.... I'm just sayin....

    A MacBook Pro is also good especially the 2017 released. I heard, it has better graphics.
