Fun fact: The Asus Zenbook is the exact same machine, and, even with a copy of OSX on it (Yes, PCs can run OSX now, and vice versa), it's 2/3rds the price and has a better warranty, and can be set up to dual-boot Windows 7 and OSX, so you're not stuck with one OS or the other.

Not looking for a Mac VS PC thing. The Sony Vaio I am using right now kicked butt with Solidworks software about 3 years ago but the dual core, 8gig ram isn't holding up very well with the today's photoshop. I have Upgraded this computer to the max I can so it will become my wife's new computer and I will learn a new OS when the new Macbook pro gets here.

I talked to a few friends in the Graphics industry and they tell me that they do have some PCs but they mostly use macs. I think it will be a good bet and investment in myself to learn Mac's OS.

Also if you are using hires displays (>1080) that don't have display port you will need the display port to dual link dvi adapter.

The Mac vs PC debate won't ever end. It's like Ford vs Chevy, bananas vs oranges, black vs white.

Why do I use a Macbook? Because my workflow is cleaner. Yes, it works on a PC. But on a mac, I just find my workflow much cleaner and more efficient. I do have a PC though, and I use it for publications and print more so than my macintosh.

Similar, just different.

Random bit that has always bugged me with the "Mac vs PC" debate...
PC means Personal Computer. Macs... are personal computers. I know there is some debate in a few circles I've been in as to whether or not "Workstation" should be a unique class from "Personal Computer", but really, they're all personal computers.

Enjoy the spinning beach ball! It will appear to brighten your day at the most unexpected times, and usually the worst possible moments.

Simple truth is, no system is perfect, most systems can be configured to a way that offers an excellent work flow, assuming you are willing to take the time to figure it out. I prefer to use other systems, but apple hardware is generally in line with upper level hardware for performance and reliablity for the price.
