I dunno, how many buttons does a mac mouse have?
I'll go ahead and approve this thread, but keep an eye on it.
Saying "PC vs Mac" is kind of misleading considering that it's 2010 and all macs are PC's.
$1,200 PC + decent audio interface + automated controller + beginner studio monitors > $3,000 Apple with the same specs as the PC, replace audio equipment with design equipment and other equipment if you're into other things.
Branding is branding. What it comes down to is power for the $ and software. If you’re sticking the your native OS (Windows or OSX, not dual booting)…then there are still far more applications available for PC.
In the end they’re both PCs running the exact same hardware. The only difference is the OS.
But thats OOOOOVER NIIIIIIIINE THOUUUSAAAAAA
no im not gonna say it
PC for games ofcourse !

PC's are better then MAC.
IF you want a PC with the same HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS as a MAC, than it will cost you cheaper. Only an IDIOT will say that a MAC is better cause it has cheaper software ... software can be gotten freely of the net if you are smart.
If anyone has a VALID reason why a MAC is better than a PC, they must combat my first statement "IF you want a PC with the same HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS as a MAC, than it will cost you cheaper". Link ppls
This isn't my signature. This is just something I write at the end of every message !
Not that i understood the logic of it, however.
"this forum has improved, i'll throw on some restrictive features because it has improved".
But then again, i havent really been understanding most peoples logic lately.
Oh no my mac isn't working. See you guys in 2 weeks.
It's PC for me.
PC means Personal Computer
A Personal COMPUTER can have multiples OS, like WINDOWS, Appleshit or Linux
What Magissia said. the mac/pc ads make me rage because a mac is a personal computer.
Anyway windows>osx because of compatibility. OSX>windows in terms of usability/accessibility but... when you have no apps to use or access, it kind of becomes a null point.
I think a lot of you will be pretty surprised if you compare the cost of one of the newer iMacs with a store bought PC. Anyone comparing self-built PCs to any kind of brand name computer, is just being ridiculous.
27-inch: 3.06GHz Intel core duo
4 GB memory
1 TB HD
ATI Radeon HD 4670
for $1,699. The quadcore 2.66 GHz is $1,990 and comes with an ATI Radeon HD 4850 card.
You don't even need a $3000 mac to do audio work, that would only be necessary for professional visual editing. And before you try to correct me, I work as a professional sound designer on an iMac. From my experience, PCs have caught up a lot in terms of support for professional video editing, sound or graphic design, but every single person that I know who has tried to run their studios with a PC has had terrible terrible issues with their computer. There's just a lot less issues with updates, incompatibilities and at least prior to Windows 7, general stability. I've still never had a virus after using Macs for 18 years and have never lost data (school work or professional) in a software related crash on OSX. This is also overlooking the fact that 98% of studios use Mac systems and while Pro Tools supports cross platform compatibility, you need to know how to use a Mac if you want to get work anywhere. It's a bit of the same situation as games on PCs, the entire market used to be on PCs so almost every game is designed for a PC. It is no longer tied to actual computer capabilities, just engrained demographics. I have noticed that HoN runs horribad on OSX though, I blame OpenGL for killing my frame rate.
