You define your computer: Buy a PC
Your computer defines you: Buy a Mac

Wow - what a truly insightful comment.


My mac book pro is 1 1/2 years old. 2GB maxes it out. :(


If you have the earlier 2.16 or 2.33 GHz MacBook Pro models they max out at 3GB of RAM, the later 2.2 and 2.4 GHz models max out at 4GB of RAM. Check out OWC for the RAM/HD upgrade configurations and prices.

I looked through the forums and read some but I'm curious now how many DPCers (or percentage) use MAC / PC. If anyone has any idea.

Right now I use Elements 5.0 on a PC at home but in my college classes I'm learning CS3 on MAC. I'm now saving up for a MAC but not sure what I want exactly. I'm thinking the MACBOOK PRO with the creative suite because it's not just photography I'm learning but sound, video, and graphic design as well.


Alrighty then...

[devil's advocate]

You made your mind up before you even posted. You knew what direction you are headed...just not which model.

What was the real intent of this Mac vs PC thread?

Was it just a harmless "How many use what Platform"? or Something much deeper?

[/devil's advocate]


It really was just a how namy use what platform.... There was really only a couple posts that got anywhere toward getting an answer. I don't mind the back and forth but the true initial intent was about how many DPCers use each platform.

I'm guessing around 8-10% based on GeneralE's post.

Does this answer please the devil? I'd really hate to upset him today of all days.

Devil's night was last night. Detroit isn't charred to a cinder so I think you're safe.

This article highlights that 8% that GeneralE may have been refering to.

With ipods popularity, iphones etc apple is making its presence more known and so its share of the market is going to go up.

But stats are different when put into context. If you look at wallstreet or paper type businesses, win/pc will be the mainstay... when you survey graphical offices (not including game developers), i'd hedge macs would be the clear winner... but they also represent a small portion of the workforce compared to paper type companies.

Apple has more market share in computers than BMW has in cars
Apple has a higher market cap than Dell, HP, Intel, and IBM
Apple is in the top 5 computer makers in units shipped (Computers, not iPods)
Market share can be deceiving, people keep Macs longer than people keep PCs, so they are not buying them as often.
Apple makes computers and software, Microsoft only makes software.

Yes, the business world has standardized on Windows and PCs, that doesn't mean you have to use them at home or get any particular advantage by doing so. Or that you HAVE to use them in the business world for that matter.

Business has also standardized on crappy coffee, I still buy better coffee for my personal use.
