Macbooks are TERRIBLE value, and they perform like crap.
Go to any PC enthusiast and they'll tell you Macs are the IRS of building PCs.
They make you a laptop and take 500% of what it should cost for themselves and charge you the rear end.

Any reason you want a Mac?
Is it for the OS?
You can buy that separately and put in on a would-be windows PC yourself to get Mac OS, and far better performance for much less.
Does it need to be a laptop?
Budget?

That's exaggeration. Macbooks actually cost quite similar to comparable windows laptops.
Check out prices of Asus Zenbook laptops for example.

@OP, what are your local retailers and budget in New Taiwan Dollars?
You can't have both a rendering workstation and that much battery life, rendering means the CPU is at high load constantly.
You'd also want more threads for that, meaning a power hungry 7700HQ laptop.
You're gonna need to compromise there.
