Default Nothing else but performance considered for my work flow: Xps 15 vs Macbook 16" i9.

I've been a PC elitist forever, and I would end up writing an essay to explain why I'm considering switching to a Macbook at this point. The main fear I have is simply not knowing how well it will perform on MacOS compared to Windows 10. I don't have enough objective experience with MacOS to know how the software I use plays with it. I don't care that one is more expensive, either one is an investment and I just want to purchase a machine with peace of mind for at least 5 years. Absolutely need a laptop because I am simply not home enough.

This is what I do 90% of the time on a computer:

1. Reaper A: Vsti based sessions with many Kontakt instances and some synth vsti's.

2. Reaper B: Basic guitar and vocal recording with my Babyface Pro.

3. Lightroom & Photoshop.

These are the two laptops I'm choosing between.

1. XPS 15", i7-9750H, 32gb ram.

2. Macbook 16", i9-9880HK, 32gb ram.

The reason I'm not comparing the XPS i9 is because I am not confident it handles the thermals as well as the recently updated Macbook Pro.

So assuming you were given either of these laptops ONLY for free, which one would you pick? Just want to know which one will perform better with their respective specs and operating systems.

Thank you so much for anyone who reads this.
