I am having a bit of a dilemma.
I have always used a pc, and recently got introduced my freinds powerbook g4. I fell in love with the simplicity and look of the mac. But i am a bit worried how well is my investment going to be. I am thinking of buying the 17 inch Imac Intel duo core for myself. I have been reading reviews pros and cons but it is all gibirish to me because I am unable to rate it. I am used to rating pc's example p4 is better than p3 etc...
The applications I use are Macromedia dreamweaver mx 2004, adobe photoshop CS and basic word, email flash applications. Also I want to be able to play high quality atleast high quality video games like battlefield 1942.
Currently I have a p4 1.8 750 ddr ram with 40 gb hard drive.
Someone please help me out in terms of perfomance, durability, usability etc..
I have heard people say that mac's are all show and nothing else but i beg to differ because my freind told me his powerbook has never crashed.
So if anyone would like to give me an unbiased opnion I will be soo happy. I am unable to make this decision due to the lack of knowledge i have for mac's
Thank you for your time.
