Thread: PC or Mac better

  1. #1

    Default PC or Mac better

    Saw from the web pages that there are quite a few plug in and editing software for the PC. I am thinking of ugrading my PC hardware and some of the phtoshop software. Any thoughts of staying in the PC platform or move to mac. Which is more preferred?

    This is like asking if Nikon or Canon is better...

    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Default Re: PC or Mac better

    I'm on both.
    Mac for images, video and multimedia stuff.
    PC for admin, programming and gaming.

    I prefer Mac a little more due to the design, system stability and lower risk of virus and spyware.
    I'm looking at a different perpective of life.

    agree. however, it would also depend on your preference. if your budget only allow 1, decide based on the one that you will use most.
    btw, mac can run on PC base too using emulator

    thanks guys. there are still pple who use pcs for photography. also checked the site again for those plug ins..
    decided to go for a i7 processor with 4gb, 1TB hdd, win 7 ultimate and ASUS motherboard. So i can play games do the ordinary admin work plus PS processing.

    thanks

    The engine for the new Mac OS is Unix based.

    Mac if you want to run many applications at the same time ; more intuitive for photography and multimedia

    PC if you want lots of power for a cheaper price

    I'm currently using a Macbook Pro 17"

    Asking a question like this will attract a lot of ppl who will say Mac is better though Mac garners like 10%+ of total market. Mac users are very passionate about their machines. So you will definitely get very biased views or getting even more confused...

    Now, for the really serious advice...

    Go buy a MAC. I love my MacBook and will also get an iMac soon.

    Mac for images.. They just look stunning when viewed on a Mac (loving my Macbook white)

    PC for games and everything else....

    just my 2 cents
