- Has anyone moved from one to the other (PC>MAC not MAC> PC) and what were the issues?
- Is it feasible to use both (MAC for photography and PC for other) or is that a stupid idea?
I must say that Apple do seem to have a considerable edge when it comes to design.
Apples look nice, and are well designed, but that doesn't mean that theya re some how any better. They are not, they are just different.
1, There can be issues with transfering files depending on how you have stored them: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=707861
2, No reason you can't use both. They are both just as capable as each other.
The only real issue with Macs is the limited range of Hardware.
There is a huge gap in the line up with nothing between the Laptops and iMac's which all run laptop processors, and the server grade Mac Pro.
Currently, the ideal photography work station just so happens to sit right in the middle of that gap.
The dual core laptops and iMac are really not powerful enough for serious work on images from current generation high end camera's, and the Mac Pro is complete overkill.
