    (repeat?) Mac or PC? And more...

    Here's the story. I just graduated CSUF with the degree in illustration/art last week. I can draw, but I have no confidence in other things like painting and concept design. A few weeks ago I had a terrible car accident that totalled my car on a freeway. I could have been killed. Fortunately I won the case and I will be receiving some hefty settlement. And I want to spend the money for the good cause, while saving some for the future.

    Now here's the deal. I plan to attend CDA in Pasadena to reboot my skills and work on my portfolios. I plan to take about 3~4 classes. (that's a lot, I know) And I am thinking about purchasing Wacom Cintiq and graphic software like Photoshop and Painter. Now, should I stick with PC with Win 7 (which is horrible with Wacom tablets) or should I buy a Mac? And...does the monitor size matter since I plan to buy a Cintiq?

    hi, Gogidolim,
    Sorry and happy at the same time to hear your story!
    wish you well!
    In terms of your Q - I would def stick to Mac, this is a great thing!
    I use it once in a while, and I didn't get used to it((( but if you are at the crossroads- buy Mac, at least I would do this!

    Both can be good for art these days, so I'd say go with what you're more comfortable with!

    If you're someone computer/tech-savvy and you like having a lot of control, or you'd also like to use your computer for gaming, I'd recommend sticking with Windows.

    If, on the other hand, you're the kind of person who just wants to make technology as simplified as possible, and you're only going to use your computer casually or for art, a Mac could be a good choice.
