Dell XPS 15 looks nice

Can’t really compare Dell’s Precision line with XPS. XPS laptops are great.

Why not just save the money and use your Mac for excel modeling? You’ll miss out on some keyboard shortcuts but a lot of the same functionality is there

Yeah Macs are pretty brutal for excel. Plus my Mac is 7 years old now and starting to lag so it’s time for a new one anyways. I’ll probably wait for a cyber Monday deal.

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
