Side note, I’m actually a bit scared of this: http://www.androidpit.com/google-vs-apple-android Must read ^

These things takes a lot of time to solve and there’s a lot of “ifs” usually involves.

But I do think the future is for “Android” products. (just my opinion).

Get PC because you will get more performance for that money as compared to mac and you can play games and run any software with ease. Mac is not virus free so stop claiming that it’s virus free. On windows just install Microsoft Security Essentails which is free and you are good togo.

I was near to buy a MacBook. I think PC is better to go with when you allready have it. I mean, for what I need a cool Interface that is “easy” to handle. Im 95% in Photoshop so I wont see much difference. The other point you must consider if its also worth to switch the OS because you need a Mac Version of Adobe programms, which we know they arent cheap. All in all everybody must find his solution :)

Macs, I would say are for creative thinkers.
nope

Or who think they are now creative because they own a Mac :P If you opening this thread asking, then you are doubting. Do not be fooled by it’s shiny exterior and price tag. I would save the cash and invest in creative tools, books etc to further your skill set. Now that’s being a creative thinker ;)

Personally, I’m not a creative I’m a developer, but I switched my main computer from PC to Mac a few years ago. I honestly believe the switch has made me more efficient in my workflow. I still use a PC on a regular basis, and don’t have any problems using it, but it’s all down to personal preference.

I took the leap because I wanted to try something new, and didn’t expect to actually swap my main machine over. The thing I find with Macs is that they hold their value quite well, compared to PCs. So, I’d say it doesn’t matter what you use it for, the only way you’d know if it would be beneficial would be just to give it a go. Either pick up a second hand machine, or buy the latest (doesn’t have to be the top spec) machine and play around with it for a few weeks. If you don’t like it, then sell it on and you wouldn’t lose that much, no more than if you rented the computer.

Give it a go, I think the days of being one or the other are coming to an end so it’s not as if you have to abandon PC’s now you have a Mac. :)

+1 That sounds like a misinterpretation of Apple’s core values and their marketing, laid out in the last two decades. Apple assumes everyone is a creative and everyone is a thinker, even your grandma. You just didn’t get the meaning of what they were trying to say with that vision.

Just switched to the retina macbook couple of weeks ago (from one of high-end VAIO laptops). For a windows user it’s whole new experience. And it feels like “wow! that how computer should work”.

and, yes, it is expensive. especially high-end configuration. but it worth every penny. there is no similar hardware in windows world (you will not believe this statement until you try it yourself).

cough That’s not true. You can also use a resolution higher than retina too.
