I remember years ago helping someone choose a computer platform. “Walk into a computer store, and look at the software titles,” I suggested. “If the software you want is mostly for the Mac, buy the Mac. If it’s for a PC, buy a PC.”
Graphic artists would then go and buy a Mac, and number crunchers would head over to the PC area. I don’t know how they chose among all the PC models available; my advice was limited and lazy.
