So I’m curious what everyone is working on, a Mac or a Pc? Let’s see if it’s a myth that as a rule, graphic/web/etc designers use (or should be using) a Mac, since it’s been quite a while that designing applications are common for both platforms.
Personally, my first computer (aaaages ago) was a mac. Get this: PowerMac 6100/60. Yes sir you read that right. It was considered a speed rocket back then lmao. 8mb of ram!!!! 250mb HDD !!!!! (enter ‘wow’ here lol). Again, yes sir. I was just out of school, looking for a job and everyone was asking for a mac user. So my choice was based on that in terms of practice and learning and it certainly served its purpose (which was a good thing since the damn thing costed a fortune back then). Poor thing is still here eating dust for the last decate+ ofcourse, literally a dinosaur for the museam but I don’t even have the heart to give it away for recycle. That 15’’ CRT screen is still like new and literally saved my a** on crisis moments in later years, ha!.
Anyway, when it was time to get another one, a pc was a one way $ street at that point. It was for entertainment home use, not work (though I had no problem working on it whenever some project came my way) and I simply fell in love with PCs. When I decided that I needed a laptop three years ago, there was no question that it was gonna be a pc again and this time it wasn’t b/c of $. But maybe that was a safe choice since all these years it was a conscious desicion not to take on any work on my own (just rarely, every now and then for friends in need). And all these years I’ve been working with a Mac at work, so it’s not like I would miss them, 8-10-12-16h /day was enough, me thinks. When I came back home after work, I simply didn’t want to see a mac in a mile away hahaha. Now, if freelance goes on a more permanent work status for me, next buy will probably be a mac I guess.
So what is everyone using?
Why stick to one?
Mac… Mac… Mac… Mac… Mac… Mac… Mac… Mac… (Trying to convince you all to do it) expensive but worth itLOL Constantin. At some point I will have to settle for both I guess like Harvey, but apple/mac doesn’t inspire me so far for technological monogamy.
Mac I love their design, and I love my design… sooo, well, erm. it goes together well I suppose
PC, cause I’m just cool like that.
