Was at my client's place where they're running both PC and Macs. Just for the fun of it, we test out the Mac 23 inch screen against a non Mac screen ( can't remember the brand ) using the same CPU, a PC ( a custom build one bought in Feb 07 for their creative dept ). Connect the Mac screen to the PC than the non Mac screen. We agreed that the Mac screen looks better. Tried the same with the G5 and the Mac screen looks even better. I'm not a tech kind of guy so I can't say if this makes senes or not, but this is what I saw about 3 mths ago. Maybe it's due to the setting on the Mac and the PC, as I said, I'm not that much of a tech guy so I woun't know.
TS, hope this helps
I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
I believe it's how the Mac OS and Win XP handles color.
Why not we meet up and compare. I will bring my Power Mac laptop with me and somebody bring a PC...
Pictures on my Acer laptop look a hell of a lot sharper and better than on my flatmate's macbook pro.
So it has a lot to do with the LCD used.
it is not this reason but more on that mac used to use in the publishing industry in years ago so they already follow the industry standard of how images should be in their os but not pc.Bill gates do not believe in standards always try his own standard and force pple to follow.
Mac invades earth and brainwashes the world!
mac screen by default is gamma 1.8 whereas pc screens by default is gamma 2.2. in this sense the mac is brighter.
sharpness is purely the resolution of the various screens. mac screens r generally quite high res so if u r comparing it to the common pc screen there's bound to b a difference in favour of the mac.
yesh they look much sharper
D800 | D700|16mm f2.8D|35 f1.4G|50 f1.8G|60mm F2.8D|85mm f1.4G|16-35 f4G|70-200 f2.8 VR2| SB900
No offence bro, but most PCs these days connect to LCDs via DVI too. And secondly, the graphics chips on Macs are far inferior to the high end 8800 series from Nvidia from PCs.
I think some of you need to have a look at pictures on a Dell Ultrasharp 24" connected to a dual core Wintel machine then see if you still think that images look better on a mac
my comment stems from the fact that we are now comparing brands, not products.
saying that a mac is better or sharper than a PC is like saying Canon SLRs are better than Nikon ones (or vice versa) without even comparing actual cameras!
can a 350D be sharper than a D2Xs or a D50 be better than a 1DsMkII?
These articles will serve as good reading material...
