Thanks for the feedback, guys. I’ll need to see what exactly is wrong with this machine :)

Let’s be honest people, they’re both PC. PC = Personal Computer (has nothing to do with it’s operating system)

Reason for Windows computers to be called PC is because they won the PC wars years ago, everyone can agree with that, right? Good! But if you know your Mac, Windows or Linux machines, you know that they are all a PC. Simple as that ;)

Now, I use Mac because I find it more suitable for my needs and I’ve never had any problems with it at all. Windows is installed under Bootcamp and it’s both faster and more stable on my Mac than on any Windows machine I’ve tried.

The reason I went with Mac in 2010 was because on Mac you don’t have to deal with viruses (at least I haven’t faced any virus on mac so far) otherwise I feel more comfortable to PC when it comes to using application shortcuts :)

Counting down the minutes until this turns into a Mac vs. PC argument. :D

I hate apple :evil:

LucidStudios,

The reason you don’t need to deal with viruses is because 5% of all PC’s are MAC .

So why even bother aiming at that tiny target?

All the best design software is for Macs, what I get on Windows is second-hand.

I hear this all the time, but can someone explain it to me. I’ve worked at places where I was on a mac, and at places where I was on a PC. Photoshop was still photoshop, fireworks was still fireworks, illustrator, etc.

To be clear I’m not trying to troll…I’m honestly curious because I’ve just never seen the huge difference, and I’m curious what details about this people bring up. I really don’t give a crap which desktop you use :)

I’ve heard some people say that it’s because of the keyboard shortcuts making it quicker, but that’s ridiculous because Win has similar shortcuts available within those programs just with the differing keys on their keyboard.

I’ve heard others say it’s the gamma. This I sorta understand, because I do see that the mac screen gamma more closely represents the end result of a print piece once printed. But for on-screen/online work it’s the exact opposite, the gamma on Win more closely represents the gamma that 95% of your viewers will be seeing, because most of them will be on windows. And oddly enough I’ve even noticed that the colors on my iPod screen for a project I put online seem to more closely match the colors on my windows gamma screen than on the macs I check on…though I’ve always found that weird as hang, maybe newer iOS devices aren’t that way.

Can anyone shed more light on this particular reason for preference for me?

I’m a PC guy, but also use a Mac a lot.

The thing I dislike about Mac is the “look” of lots of software, and the interface in general: Big cheesy buttons, brushed metal textures everywhere, distracting shiny blue scroll bars, ugly pill shaped buttons, etc. And also the desktop, with the roll over effect of the icons at the bottom… seemed cool at first, but gets tiring pretty quickly.

In summary, I love the design of the hardware, but hate the look of the software. :) Just my opinion! :D

5% is a small percentage, but that 5% is a LOT of people… and mostly unprotected people. If a virus were to hit Mac, it would be pretty devastating. 95% of users may use PC’s but most are well protected already.
