erwin_01 said:From experience (I work in the Graphic Design Industry) I feel that PCs are better than Macs. Unfortunately the majority of Graphic Designers believe they "need" to use Macs, despite that a PC can do the same thing at a cheaper price, a PC is easier (and cheaper) to upgrade, is easier to repair, and has more software available to them.
Also, from experience, I have found that Mac users tend to get confused when confronted with a mouse with more then one button.
What you're saying just isn't true in the real world, not at all:
1. There are lots of multibutton mice for Macs, including Apple's Mighty Mouse, so this hasn't been an issue in a long, long time.
2. Macs and PCs are similarly priced when similarly equipped. This is also something that's been true for several years.
3. Macs and PCs use the same memory, hard drives, etc., and the Mac Pro, Apple's "upgradeable" model, is easier to upgrade than almost any desktop out there.
4. As to software, this is true in terms of numbers, but not necessarily in terms of quality. For content creators, most software is available on both platforms. For video editors, Apple's Final Cut Pro, a mainstay in the entertainment industry, is NOT available on the PC.
One more thing: Every productivity study I've seen shows Macs are ahead on that score. I've challenged one of our forum members to provide evidence to the contrary, and he's failed to do so.
So I would suggest that you need to recheck your facts.
