A strong 7
looking to possibly switch from a windows based system for the home computer. is mac really all that and more? basically for image and video editing. any reccos or pitfalls to avoid would be appreciated.
Photoshop (and not the less expensive LE or Element versions) is necessary for image editing. Get nothing else. I have not done one day's work without it in 10 years. Get it no matter what computer you have.
And ANY MAC will not do. This OS needs at least 1gb of ram to operate smoothly. Do not cheap out and buy a basic model. Trust me. Go for the 2gigs and you won't have to upgrade or buy a new model for a long time.
