Win PCs and Macs with the same features are about the same price. Where you save money on Win PCs is by buying computers without the standard features that come with all Macs, such as Bluetooth, 802.11n wifi, gigabit ethernet, video camera, aluminum enclosures, digital optical audio input and output, etc., etc.
hmmm my mobo has all of that except bluetooth and who cares about bluetooth? and i can just pick up a cheap pci wifi card if i really wanted it.

and aluminum enclosures..sure, cheap aluminum enclosures. go get a lian li.

okay i read through a few of those threads people posted in this one.. icouldnt read through all of them i got so annoyed at the stupidity.

And I'm glad that works for you. As said, it's entirely preference when you're doing any sort of photo manipulation, so let's leave it at that.

a high performance pc can do it way better than a similarily priced mac and even a mac 1,000 dollars more. just sayin.

I don't think even their Top end computer would out do mine for example. Especially when I get another 580.

My computer was 2.7k.

This is 4.3k!

And I'm just saying that the stupid argument of a PC costing a lot cheaper than the equivalent Mac is getting really old. The whole world knows that a PC costs less (especially a performance computing forum, so no need to post it for the billionth time), so can we please stop beating this dead horse of an argument? Some people find it worth it. Am I one of those? For the desktops, no. For the laptops, I have strongly considered Apple products in the past. The truth is, personal preference goes a long way in any computing decision. If you want to buy a Mac, buy one and be happy with your purchase. If not, nobody's forcing you at gunpoint. If at the end of the day it does what you need it to and you get enough satisfaction from owning it, it's doing its job, right?

Besides, I only made that last post because the OP of this thread is all about how giving computing advice on POTN is a bit of a crap shoot, really, and not the typical "durr hurr hurr, y u spend ton of money on a mac. u stupid 4 not buying pc for a lot less."

Obviously, I'm using hyperbole.
