The Mac user was generally able to avoid all that and focus their time an energy on the projects at hand. If none of those meet your needs, take a hike. That is why their prices have dropped so dramatically. I think we've already proven that your ability to judge reality is feeble at best. The History of Macs and Graphic Design In my opinion, the bias towards using Macs today is based on the long-standing history and tradition of Graphic Designers using Macs. I think that makes a difference. With a Mac, you have much higher quality in the hardware-operating system-application software combination because there is inherently less to go wrong, and more comprehensive testing is possible before the product is released.
Yes, you can find a great card that can handle all 3, but depending on what is more important, I would find the card that is optimized for your what you do the most. The extra money is well worth it. Every one of them started to slow down after about 6 months due to the garbage that infects Windows machines. I liked your point about designers choosing Mac because of tradition. You might say I grew up with Apple. However their is a new trend in smaller developers creating designed-focused apps exclusively for the Mac.
Any hiring manager or anyone for that matter who prejudices one system over another is clearly ignorant and projecting their own fears and doubts onto someone else. The processor and graphics card, which are most vital for gaming performance, are not upgradable. Ok first let me say that I am not a dell fan. I have to agree with Gary on that final point Roberto. This is a huge reason for my not accepting this new position.
However, there are objective considerations, too. We all still use them daily and have never had a problem with them. As to the point on leveraging multiple hard drives it may not make sense in the context of the way you design. The reason Apple computers cost more is simply because they have better build construction and they know people will pay it. Well even with a 3 year warranty it still undercuts the apple by a heck of a lot while having some better specs and more expandability. For the same price, you do get a much bigger powerhouse, especially when comparing the macbook's 650m 1gb to the saber 680m 4gb.
And you're leaving out all the work you had to do to get it to run. Is the hardware of a higher quality? Quality tools are quality tools regardless of the brand. At the end of the day it comes down to execution more than anything else. And it still needed more updates after that. Once you come up with facts, then we can talk.
Today, Apple is as relevant as ever, thanks to new releases of Apple operating systems, software and hardware, and related products like the , and. This is a practical reason. Never caught on with the amount of lag it caused. Mac users put all their eggs in one basket —the same company makes both their device and their operating system. Saying that it is is just one more reason I don't believe your story, at all. Apple is further assisting with backing up with the utilization of iCloud, something especially appreciated in this age of people using multiple devices, such as the iPhone and iPad. And hide all the cables.
There was even a study done a few years ago for top hardware running Windows and Mac came on top. Still there was a lot of Mac loyalty among designers. Exactly how dense are you? The experience is tied down and made to function the same for most one of the reasons I don't like it personally, same reason I don' t have an iPhone, I enjoy installing custom roms etc on my Android phone That said, there is not much difference compared between them as there used to be. Hopefully getting my first one whenever the new Macbook decides to come out. But Im agree in some points: soft included, esthetic, better security, good work from Apple in points where you are better. The gamers have driven that market as well as anyone could imagine.
Also, it took you a weekend to put together? It has become less a matter of hardware and software than of style and personal taste. Reliability, stability, usability, virus resistance, etc. And even if you did want to upgrade your Mac's graphics, you probably couldn't anyway. Hi, thank you so much for your post! For the price of many 'gaming laptops' I've even seen some people recommend getting a combination of a netbook for portability and a desktop for the actual gaming. The first month was the worst since I had the Windows way of doing things. As I also need this laptop for gaming, I also need it to be portable, and for school.
I hope you are happy with whatever decision you make. Quality comes at a price. Most people on the go you usually choose Apple Macbook Pro, and there is definitely a good reason. The non core2duos you're referring to that can't run Lion were made way back in 2006. Im 13 years old, and have experiience with both. And we had no viruses! Unfortunately, the cost of a new Video card for a Mac this old, i might as well buy a new Mac.
Mac mini, iMac and Mac Pro. Do you even know where it is inside the case? It doesn't require user intervention to make sure it's running efficiently. There Are couple of things to consider however, If you get the lower end ones, they suck for gaming. Apple computers are more expensive but offer a different perspective, it is just like a premium car, you get extra safety, comfort, quality materials, and exclusivity. It was one of the first companies to transform the computer from an imperceptible mass of vacuum tubes stationed primarily at universities and government offices to a manageable-sized machine for ordinary people.
