I guessed that was the answer!!...do you have a preference?

Or are both just tools of your trade?

It depends. Wink

I like windows because I know windows really well and they are easy to upgrade hardware wise and cheaper.
I like macs because they are visually stunning and the OS is as well.

I do most of my work on windows machines, but I do most of my casual computing on an apple product (ipad).

Haha - If I only I could have predicted such a reaction Smile

BTW - the speed is not because I bought a 16gb machine. I have a 16gb PC, and it is no where near as quick as the mac when using multiple programs.

Like I said, I have not been a macfan - I've always stuck with Windows. But I love my Iphone so thought I would try the Imac - I must say I've been converted

Great Answer....and very intuitive to the PC vs Mac constant debateWink

I personally would love a Mac for the aesthetics and OS but I always have Windows due to the cheaper cost and the simplicity of bunging a bit more Ram, SSD , etc

Sounds to me like you have the perfect set up with the Ipad for ease of use and Windows Machines for heavier work loadsSmile

Will the Epz Guru's personal preferences silence the Mac vs PC debate!!?....I doubt it but Thanks for your answer DavidSmile

They are a bit tasty is has to be said!!! And its nice to see the spec being upgraded a fair bit!!

Give Pete a tantrum and tell him your off unless he gives you a pay rise to cover one off...Even if you dont need one it would great with a bunch of daffs beside it!!Tongue
