…the more they stay the same?
Well, I don’t know about that.
I don’t think this is a fair comparison anymore.
The past week I’ve been trying to decide if I want to invest in another Mac or get a custom build PC. I’ve always been a Mac person – it was the computer I used for Graphic Design School. It’s been my brand and all I’ve ever really used. I’ve always found Windows and DOS really hard to wrap my brain around. Maybe it’s because I’m impatient and I want things to work NOW and to be able to find things NOW… Mac has always been NOW for me. But I’m a poor artist, seriously – I am! The programs are horrendously priced, the hardware becomes obsoleet quickly and upgrading is not an option OR it’s a nightmare.
Mac – has literally become the computer of the elite.
Last year I bought a little PowerBook to write a little children’s book on. It did the job – I got it done… but when the battery went, the cord went and I had to spend another $200 (added to the $600 I originally paid) it upset me when I couldn’t even watch a Netflix on it.
The OS was obsolete and it’s not upgradable.
I’m having the same issue with my iMac. I paid over $2000 for this computer 7 years ago – I maxed out the ram and hard drive and honestly it’s served me well. But I don’t have $2000 and $2000 won’t get me what I need anymore from Apple.
But – for under a grand… you’d be really surprised what I could get in the form of a custom PC.
I love the sleek, hip and ease of a Mac.
I literally just can’t afford it.
I guess my iPhone will have to update to my new PC and I’ll have to run Adobe CS6 in Windows 7 – I feel kind of like I just broke up with my girlfriend.
This loyal Apple user is having to say goodbye. So much for our 20 year love affair, breaking up is really hard to do…
I have lots of research to do I think.
