I will be in the marker for a new computer in about 3 months. I have seen the commercials on new school Mac vs. old school PC. :rolleyes:

What do you work with and why??

Thanks in advance...

i have a pc, i've always had pc's, and i'm comfortable troubleshooting if i need to (although i never need to really, I find windows 2000 and forward to be really stable). macs are fine too, and supposedly well engineered (we have an ibook, and it's a decent computer, but I prefer my pc).

just go with whatever works best for you, people can argue back and forth about which is better, but the truth is both are equally suitable for photo work. just go with whatever you know best.

I wonder if not one or more of these threads will answer the question:

https://photography-on-the.net …t=341908&highli​ght=pc+mac
https://photography-on-the.net …?t=78602&highli​ght=pc+mac
https://photography-on-the.net …t=306213&highli​ght=pc+mac
https://photography-on-the.net …t=338838&highli​ght=pc+mac

And there are probably many more threads on this subject.


And just a word of caution to everybody. As soon as the flame wars start the thread will be closed.
