Totally different cars...

They're really such different cars that it's hard to compare them. The Boxter is a mid-engine convertible sports car, the BMW a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe.

I'd take the Boxter, unless you think you'll need the back seats, or unless you live in a part of the country with a lot of cold weather and/or snow.

Wrong vehicle class comparison

As the post above suggested, you're comparing apples and pears. If you want to stay with either BMW or Porsche I would suggest looking into the Z4 M Roaster as it is a more viable rival to the Boxter S. Porsche really doesn't have a 3-series equivalent in their line-up. If you're looking for a non-convertible fun small car, I'd also recommend looking into the Z4 M Coupe or Porsche Cayman S.

As far as handling and joy of driving go, BMW has yet a lot of work to do to reach Porsche's chin.

The Bimmer

the upcoming 3 series bimer coupe sounds like a great car and it is now and still next year will be a serious performer and the bimmer is way more practical than the porsche. also that next-gen coupe will come in all wheel drive and the only porsche thats all wheel drive is more that $70,000.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
