I’ve always been a PC kind of guy, especially when I’ve worked in a design agency and have been surrounded by Mac loving design nerds all claiming their Macs were infinitely better than my PC. I felt I had to defend myself, even though yes the PC and Windows in general has, shall we say, a few issues.
However I’ve also always been an ASP guy as opposed to PHP, yet have found myself recently straying down the PHP path for it’s somewhat better support and fewer security holes.
For this reason I will at least promise to look at a Mac, if only to complain and criticise at every step. In doing so I wanted to look for used macs and found this very Amazon influenced website dealing in used macs and Mac parts.
Great if you like that sort of thing. I’m new to the whole G4 lingo (thinking they were a pop band) so have to start from scratch when it comes to working out what is what in terms of Mac products. Luckily they seem to have everything catered for on the website.
The thing that did draw me in though was the video editing section. I have been trained on the PC system Avid so know what a professional video edit suite can do, yet again everyone I speak to harps on about how the Mac is better at editing videos as well. DV Warehouse has a lot of choice in this department so if I want to go down that road I won’t be stuck for options.
I’ll start small though and use a Mac laptop for a week as a test. I’ll let you know how I get on.
