Re: Computer choice Mac or PC

The prices tend to level out when you start adding applications.

The last version of OSX was free, last version of Windows was ???,
Aperture 55 ish - Lightroom 90ish,
Normal use office software Mac about 30, MS Office about 100
Most users need for Photoshop on a Mac - Pixelmator about 30 Photoshop a minimum of 100 up to 600 for the full PS. Or go Gimp which is free on both platforms.

The prices now start to level out.

The big advantage of the Mac platform versus the MS platform is that the software is written by the same company that makes the hardware. With Windows there is a disconnect between the hardware and software makers.
