In Topic: Are Macs Really Better for Digital Photography, Compared to a Windows Build?

28 September 2011 - 06:42 PM

it's maybe a little trite- but when you're working in a field which is the manifestation of aesthetics, then working on something pretty really does help you enjoy what you do. You would be dubious about getting a haircut from someone with **** hair, so I feel more creative and inspired working on a nice looking, and well build laptop with such a streamlined OS

also functionally being able to view RAW files straight from the finder saves you having to import them into lightroom/photoshop before you can see them. I think windows 7 is still not allowing this feature, at least you can't quick look the files- In fact quick look is enough to stay on OSX anyway

but whether I prefer osx or not, as a designer there was no other option- the industry just lives on OSX so you have to know it and be compatible with it



also you can't just take a macbook and compare it spec for spec with a dell- the magnesium casing, backlit keys, better keyboard, battery life and quality of track pad are worlds apart from a cheap windows laptop, compare the macbook to a top of the range vaio and the price difference disappears
also regardless of price I just wanted a mac, same way as I wanted levi jeans rather than a £4 pair from TK maxx
