need advice on buying computer for mainly photoshop usage (chief consideration), and of course running microsoft stuff like Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, Project...(secondary consideration).
me currently using PS5.5 on laptop (PIII 700, 256RAM), and it seems usable to me. My files are currently no larger than 6-7mb, in TIFF mode.
forsee in future will be dealing will larger files size of 30MB/file and possible dealing with digital video editing too.
I am looking at buying a new computer and need advice on the following questions:
1. Mac or PC (i assume PS works the same on both platform. If that's the case, why people still use Mac??)
2. what configuration? from mother board, CPU, RAM, HDD, graphics card, monitor (LCD vs Cathode), input/output ports (USB 2.0 vs firewire..etc), CDR, DVD....
Hope i am not asking for the moon, as my budget is around $3k only... hehehehe
me not very familiar with computer hardware so need help from fellow clubsnapper.
thanks in advance!!
