Someone mentioned a similar method to what I do. I use the slice tool to take out the basic images and hide the layers that I do not require slicing.
However, I do not do this in photoshop but jump into fireworks as I find the slice tool (and other features) top notch and way more user friendly that photoshop. This is actually the case in my whole design process, I love fireworks and would stop using photoshop all together if they introduced some of the great photoshop features. (sorry for going off topic).
I agree with the majority – It’s what your most comfortable with.
However when I purchased my first computer, it was fully based upon price. I was at a point where the mac range was just to steep for me therefore I had to live with a PC, at the time using Windows XP.
However when I became more financially healthy, I just had to get myself a Macbook for on the go work and soon as I got used to the differences and developed the know-how of how to use it, I soon fell in love. If anyone queries me about the best system to buy, I can not help myself but scream at them “Buy a Mac”.
The only problem I have with a Mac is software. Even though the popularity is growing, I can not always be guaranteed to get the software I require. Not so much web development software, but about a year ago I took a financial services (bookkeeping, payroll e.t.c) business under my wing (weird move but worthy) and decided use a number of programmes to get best results however the better ones are still not compatible with Mac. So thats always something to think about…
P.S Me and my Mac’s love life is still as strong as ever and argument free.
