I'm the only graphic designer here and we may shift into a whole new marketing department. The company is already at 150+ capacity, with Sales, Customer Service, and even their own in-house IT/Development department.

With the possible shift towards an in-house marketing department, I'm trying to give them the heads up that the art department will need to run on MAC. Unfortunately, they are very ignorant when it comes to MAC and I get an immediate head-shake NO when I just murmur the word Apple to them.

They currently have me on a PC w/ dual monitor. It's probably a under $1,000 PC, single processor, and I get maxed out on multitasking when it comes to Runing Adobe and Macromedia products in parallel. With my Dual G5 at home, I don't have this problem.

The short of this all really is I need some sort of credientials, a strong reference to the efficency of MAC in my realm of duties (print/web design). I think they're afraid because they run all these PC's on a domain base, and it's dynamic for them to sort of control permissions and filters. I think they just don't realize I'm not an entity of their sales/customer service software.

If you have time and want to docture something up, that would be great.

You could possibly bring your machine to work, show a side by side comparison and what a workhorse it is.

I would definitely consider that. Keeping that in mind, I want to be able to show some evidence of existing marketing departments, to sort of give their testimonials.
