Default Re: Mac or PC or Both?
I run a PC here, but a few months ago I was running a MAC.

Regardless of what people say there are things a MAC simply cannot do that easily (try extracting multiple compressed files on a MAC!), not to mention the fact that there are a lot more options with regards to software than on a MAC.

Its horses for courses and it really does depend on the situation you are in and what software your client wants you to use, however, knowing first hand what the limitations are with Mac's, it has to be PC for me just purely for compatibility reasons.

The technical specifications offered by Macs and PCs can be very similar or very different, depending on which brand and line you're comparing. While they both have similar internal parts (processors, RAM, hard drives, video cards), the speed and capacity of these components vary. But myself prefer for PC.

Default Re: Mac or PC or Both?
I use both! I use my Windows based computer for things like word-processing, emailing, basically anything administrative and simple. I use my Mac for designing ebooks, photography edits - anything "design" related. I come from a photography background (owned a photography studio for 7 years before starting my VA business) and always used a Mac and I love them. But since switching to two systems I like that I have a computer where I can do all of the creative stuff on and a computer I can do the admin type of stuff on
