I agree with jdr8271, video editing is much more elegant on a Mac, but for static design, flash and web it's really just personal preference. With the speed and universal connectivity of USB these days external devices like large storage drives are no longer as expensive as they have been in the past (especially for the mac).
Obviously most folks are still using PCs (including myself). I'll note, though, that a friend of mne recently bought a mac mini and he loves it; says it's a lot faster than his windows box even though the computer has worse specs.
"For activities requiring large amounts of processor-intensive memory manipulation, a Power Mac G3 is around 10 percent to 30 percent faster than a PC running at the same basic processor clock rate." This is from an article I read recently.
My PhotoShop instructor also told me that with Macs, when you delete something from a project, you get your memory back right away. With a PC, there is a requirement to shutdown or restart after a period of time. Now, I don't quite know how to explain that in technical terms but in my experience with a top of the line PC, I've had to do just that. Can someone explain better?
I use a Mac G4 with Tiger. Macs seem to be the choice for large format graphics and photography. I do have a PC but I found I couldn't work in Photoshop and have three other programs open at the same time without running into memory problems. With the Mac, that doesn't happen.
PC.....I think now adays a lot of the things you can do with a mac you can do with a pc ...and now that intel has taken over mac chips, what would be the point of buying a mac anyway?......joking. no slam intended
