Since Joe is our resident Mac-man (nice spin on pac-man, right?) I figure he would be the best one to ask about Mac’s.
So Joe, i need a run up on a decent mac system. Maybe something along the lines of like an octo 2.8 or something, with atleast 2gb of ram…I have no idea how affordable it would all be, but that is why i am asking. I figure if you can’t build the best system for the least amount of money, nobody can. Or if that is not really possible (cheap and powerful) you could atleast give me idea’s on ways to go that would be affordable and practical.
Also, how worthwhile are mac books for serious work? am i better with a tower no matter what? I am trying to be an informed Mac guy.
I am trying to find a system that would be good for serious photoshop work. I may need to work with material in huge resolutions with massive ppi and the like. I am liking the fact that Leopard is not resolution dependent and when the new line of monitors start coming out that will make use of this i would like to be prepared.
On the bright side, through school i can get Adobe Photoshop CS3 for only $397 instead of the whopping $2000! Go Concordia go!
Thanks in advance! Looking forward to following up on this one. My responses may be a little delayed as my internet access is limited for the time being.
