Ok, so I brought and iPad and found the Mac experience to be not a bad as it used to be, and since I like to upgrade my studio PC every few years, I took the bait and started reserching Macs. So heres the problem(s) Ive encountered so far, wondering your thoughts on the subject: Price. Damn, they are expensive. My current Windows system is a I7 920 with 12gig ram and a Quadro FX1800 video card. To get a comparible system is going to cost around $9k if I get a 27" monitor. Yikes. My old system only cost around $5k, and that included 3 UAD1 cards! Software. Since Apple pretty much treats users like sligtly retarded babies, you arnt allowd to use any other software that hasnt been Apple certified, you have the choice of about 4 very over priced DAWs. Fortunatly my main DAW Reaper has a fairly stable Mac version available. No VSTs either....double yikes! Attitude. HOMG Im sick of the elitist snooty attitude of Apple sales people. Lots of the myths Ive heard about Mac (never crash, no viruses, better graphics, faster) are simply not true. My iPad crashes 3 or 4 times a day, and apparently thats pretty normal. The last album we mixed on a Protools Mac system, I remember spending lots of time watching the little flower icon as the system hung and crashed all the time. So anyways, might sound like Im anti-mac, Im not, its just so far Im struggeling to justify any need to swap over to one. Im wondering why you Apply guys use them, at the end of the day they do the same job as a Windows system.
