Why choose a mac?
Hey guys, I was just wondering why there is a general preference of Mac computers for artists. Do they handle photoshop or painter software better than pc's? Do mac graphics displays render artwork better?

They are user-friendly.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

Cause Woz is an awesome man, and i support him. I'm gonna be buying my first ibook soon, because i actually do like macintosh and the way everything seems to be integrated into each other. Just a cleaner OS to me. But, I also tinker with computers so I'm not straying away from Windows and linux. I like to have experience with everything. Especially since i work more in 3D and 2D is a close second I'll use it mainly for web design and 2d endeavors.
They make really nice portable computers.

Buy one because they look cool and you will fit in with all the other artists.

macs are over-rated. both macs and pcs have their pros and cons. i wouldnt say one is 'better' than the other though.. just a matter of preferrence - JAG

For me it all comes down to price. Macs are no better than PC's as Pc's are no better than macs. They're computers, they do the same things...
for the price of 1 closed system proprietary mac... I can build 2 flexible open system PC's.

Would it be a good idea to buy a macbook pro to prepare for working as a concept artist?
