This is a good question- its one I had myself after I had been using only Thunderbird for about a decade. Then I changed platforms and used some other clients, and recently came back to Thunderbird because my main machine died. I have to say that Thunderbird need work. Two items I noticed:

1) proper threading. Lets face it, the gmail "chat style" presentation is actually very good compared with digging through "sent" or separate mboxes
2) better integration with calendar/reminders/todos

Thunderbird is still a good client, and it is particularly good at fine-grained control (compare the number of available settings with the number in the Win10 mail client- the latter looks like a toy). However, it can be improved and brought up to date with new ideas that are now common currency in mail clients.

I think you have a good comparison, but I was wondering about the relative portability. Oryx: 15.2 × 10.7 × 1.1, 5.50lbs; MacBook Pro 15, 13.75" x 9.48" x 0.61", 4.02lbs. Though I don't think the Oryx is unmanageable, and I do think Apple might go to far looking for thin-ness, I have to give the MacBook Pro the edge on size.

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
