3 months ago I was able to get a new laptop for school and work. I was able to choose between all laptops but I decided to buy a MacBook Pro 2017 because back in 2010 I had a MacBook pro as well and loved it to bits! I am very thankfull that my parents are able to give me such tech but after working with it for 3 months I highly regret my decision and want to go for a Windows laptop again. The MacBook starts to struggle because the RAM of the laptop is full when Photoshop and Google Chrome are running. And for a laptop worth €3200 that shouldn't be possible.
So what I am asking is how to approach my dad about this problem without sounding like a spoiled brat? My dad doesn't like losing money and selling the laptop means that some of the spendings will be lost because of it being "second hand". My dad also has quite a short fuse (gets angry quite fast if questions are asked at a bad time).
Note I contacted apple support about the "ram issue" but everything checked out fine. The laptop is in 100% perfect condition.
Should I make an ad for the laptop and wait for someone to offer me the desired amount before I approach my father?
Should I go to my father straight away? And ask him for any recommendations to resolve this "problem".
Edit Maybe also worth mentioning that the laptop I want to replace the laptop with is cheaper than the current one. MacBook €3199,- Dell XPS 15 €2599,-.
