Just a question for our more computer savvy readers out there. And it’s a question eliciting a near eternal battle – PC or MAC?
I’ve been a PC person since moving from CPM-80 to the first version of MS Dos, and through every flavor of windows.
I’ve always been on the leading, if not bleeding edge of PC’s, and for about the last 20 years, I’ve built my own from scratch. I’ve never had any desire to own an apple product until the advent of the iPhone and iPad.
But, I’m starting to wonder if it’s time to dip my toe in the water.
I’ve always been told that the Macs are awfully nice to work with in doing graphic design, video editing, etc, and since with my subscription to the Adobe suite, I get both the PC and MAC versions, I’m somewhat tempted to give them a try.
Further piquing my interest is the fact my current AMD FX-8350 based PC has been a real pain in the @$$ lately; rebooting, acting funny, and general odd behavior I attribute to overheating and/or Windows 10. These are behaviors I’m not really appreciating when I’m in the middle of trying to do design work.
As we get past the primary, and I have a little more time, at a minimum I’m looking at a complete rebuild, going with one of the newer Intel i7’s and appropriate motherboard. But I’m seeing a few used Mac’s out there with stout enough specifications (and low enough prices) I’m tempted to give it a shot.
Anyone familiar with working with both? What are your thoughts?
