Immersion, your posts above are so full of misinformation as to cross the line into unintended humor.
the only reason why you want to buy a Mac is because you want to be different...
Could you possible be more condescending? I guess there are a lot of recording artists who are mostly preoccupied with trying to seem different. There couldn't possibly be any reasons why people might actually prefer a Mac, right?
The fact is, there are plenty of very serious musicians, creating great music and in some cases earning a fortune from their music, using laptops. You may think it's "funny" but by any standard you'd like to measure, there is plenty of "serious" and "successful" music being made using laptops.
Furthermore, the idea that Apple computers are somehow unproven in the areas of digital audio and music production is ridiculous. Have you ever read any kind of magazines like Electronic Musician, or Keyboard, or Recording, or EQ, or Sound on Sound, or Future Music, or any of the other magazines that show what kind of gear people are using? Professional musicians and recording studios using Apple hardware and software certainly outnumber those using PC/Windows setups, and toward the highest of the high end, the ratio is even more in Apple's favor.
I certainly have nothing against people who use Windows for music or audio production work, and I do have one PC in the studio that I use for Sound Forgel. I'm just saying that the suggestions that Apple is somehow a risky choice for a digital musician, or that MacOS lags behind Windows in terms of acceptance in the area of digital media, are laughable.
I assume you are an APPLE user yourself...
We are not talking about professional musicians or recording studios now do we ?
Of course as I said if you have a lot of money to waste, you can buy an mac pro, it is not like it will be worse then PC ?
Why professionals prefer Mac is probably cause it is more simple and things just work.
MAC is for lazy and rich people, where mac could be described as the "royce royce", sure an royce royce gives you social status...but an normal care though..fills it's function just as good..
With PC you have a bigger freedom of choice when comes to the choice of hardware, this means more conflicts and problems.
However with enough research you can get just as good working system for a better price.
When it comes to performence the difference is from what I know kind of minimal, it is not big enough to use either PC/Mac..after all it is about the same hardware..the only difference is on software level.
So I am sorry, I find no respect for the Apple people, who think they are just better...they are just being stupid for pay for overpriced hardware.
But sure if you are rich and money is no problem buy an MAC. Personally I would never do it.
