Damn, a MAC Vs PC thread that hasn't degenerated to name calling and people just making unsupported claims.

Where have the fanboy's gone :).

Just switched to Mac. I worked for Apple in the early '90s, but wasn't into photography back then. Should be getting my i5 Mac mini tomorrow... :D

My Acer laptop sucks because it was cheap. My Vizio laptop is fantastic because it wasn't cheap (relative to the Acer). Neither are Mac.

It depends how much you're willing to spend. The only difference is Apple doesn't make anything for the super low end whereas PC manufacturers do.

I think some mac have higher resolution (>2000) than any other laptops for the same price. Not sure how it tranlsates when you're working on images.

Hello guys! why does apple computers are preferred for photo editing? I've seen a lot of artist in the internet who uses mac computers in their editing.

Well I don't use them for anything. Not preferred at all.

When you take it performance wise, the Macs and PCs are exactly the same nowadays. As someone said: same components leads to very similar performance.
Windows 8 can win on some threads... Mac OSX can win on others, but it is minimal.

One thing that kept me in Mac camp is the "look and feel" of their products. My Macbook Pro is made of aluminum, with a glass screen and touchpad surface and the magnetic energy plug saved me once.
I still didnĀ“t see a PC coming close to it. Even high end PCs have plastic shells, plastic screen, plastic touchpad and regular energy plugs. And they cost almost the same when in similar configurations.

On the other hand, for serious work on a desktop, I still have a PC. A Macbook Pro with the same specs would cost almost twice the price!


Photography is about GEAR and not talent or practice. Practice won't make you a better photographer. Expensive equipment will. =D

Just as someone said, this is one of those Never-Ending argument. Someone likes Mac because it is easy as no need to pick the components from various suppilers. You know all the components are from Apple. But for PC, you have more choices. You can choose from a range of hardware suppliers to design your own customized machine. So personally, I am a fan of PC:D

Apparently you are also a fan of raising old threads from the dead :)

First post isn't important on a forum. Timely answers to questions where you have experience is more important.

Besides personal preference of the OS, Final Cut Pro is another reason to go Apple. Also Macs can run windows (if needed) so it is nice to have both options on one physical machine.

Go watch the 30 years of Mac movie at www.apple.com (external link). All will become clear.
