1) anyone telling you to not get a MAC is being silly and compu-racist (new word). I used a PC for many years, had no desire to get a mac. Eventually
got one and now would rather eat my own feet then ever, ever EVER use a PC again. Been Macing it for almost ten years now, maybe more.
2) Unless you are a gamer, there is no reason to not get a mac. If you are a gamer, well, you are better off using a rock you found in a river then a
3) Prices vary. If you want a big bad super mac, you can spend 2-10 thousand bucks. If that is your desire, with such a thing you can make a hollywood
movie. The Mac I use was used to create Sky Commander and the world of Tomorrow. If you want to spend only a little and still use it for music, art,
media editing and basic internet browsing you can pick up a Mac-mini for about 500 bucks, and it will fit in a small carry-along-bag.
4) I recommend a MAC to anyone sick of pop-ups, viruses, problems that take a smart person to figure out, and of course to anyone making art of the
visual or audio kind.
A power mac G5 desktop or an Airbook would do you fine. But nobody is talking me outta my Pre-intel G4. I'm just old school.
