My friend Mike attempts to answer the question – “Which is better, Mac or PC?” (related to video editing at least).
Since I purchased a new MacBook Pro yesterday, I thought I’d tell you why:
There is a “secret” angle to all this that most people forget. Actually, it ain’t much of a secret at all but next to nobody is leveraging this thing. The new Macs all have Intel chips inside meaning that they can run Windows if/when needed. Now where to some “pure” Mac users, that might seem like putting lipstick on a pig, there is an element of GET OVER IT that needs to be examined.
I’ll be honest, 95% of my computer time on this thing will be in full Mac mode. But, …
If I need a “full PC” to do some “full PC” things that only “full PCs” can do (Ustream.tv via PC has higher quality options – did you know that?), I use Bootcamp and have a full PC. Nice.
If I just need some Windows action during a computing session, I can run VMware Fusion and run “Real” Windows right on my Mac. No more having to have a PC laptop around the house just in case.
So, when I need a Mac, I have a Mac.
When I need some Windows action, I got it.
When I need a “Full PC” for some serious work, I got it.
Sorry Mike, but it doesn’t sound like a “debate” to me at all.
What do you use?
