Re: Mac or PC
i'm using a new dell laptop with vista, 4 gigs ram. i believe it's the Dell 1530 series, running pro tools for remote sessions. runs awesome. never a hiccup. from a couple of friends with macs... they are limited. i'm also running pro tools in my studio with the 002 rack, vista again. never an issue. if you have a newer machine, or especially new, vista runs perfect. vista loves power and if you throw a great board, cpu and ram at it, it will scream! my shutdown times on my workstation are about 5 seconds...core 2 duo. you also get a lot more power for your money going pc vs. mac. everyone knows that. a friend of mine who uses mac priced out a quad cpu mac system for around $2800 - $3200, whereas you could get a quad pc with 4 gigs ram for about $1400 if you build a nice machine yourself...which is what i will be doing down the road.
