Buying a new computer. Help. New OS - December 21, 2012, 12:17 PM

So looks like I might have to jump the shark and replace my 6 YO PC with a MAC. I need the artistic abilities of a MAC because per resources the PC ain't cutting it. Suggestions?

Yeah, unfortunately that only works for phones. I recognize the superior desktop environment though.

Once you go Note, 4" is a joke.

I'm confused as to what the point of this thread is...Your mind is made up on getting Mac (or so it seems). Go to Apple/Best Buy/Micro Center/Mac Mall/Amazon and buy one...

Your six-year-old PC not cutting it has nothing to do with the OS, it has to do with it being six years old

Yeah, but between the desktop versions (imac, Mac Pro, mac mini) I have no clue on whats the user experience is like. Well I know the imac, but not the other ones.

Thats why Im asking.

Not quite. It is 6 yrs old in age. Upgraded, upgraded and upgraded. Even so its still slow.

Cmon son. Im not some dumb private. Do I really have to explain that only the case is 6 years old? Jesus! You're like my exwife. Will argue the sky is red if I say its blue.

Go back to putting your brim in their face.

iMac = Desktop/Monitor combo
Mac Book = Laptop
Mac Mini = Desktop

All of the above have nothing to do with OS....

Private, maybe not, but you do seem slightly dumb

I know I know. When I say OS I guess I should have said "New OS..switching from Winblows" I just figured me saying PC would have been indicative of Windows.

I also know what a Mac Book is. I was inquiring about the desktops (Mac Pro, Mac mini, or iMac).

Cause I asked about Mac desktops when most of my experience has been on Windows? ok then.

I'll just point out you're using a processor that's 6 years old. Doesn't matter how much you're upgrading it with RAM. Unless you've got a new processor in there that's not a year old.

You didn't specify that in your original post, did you? When someone says they have a six-year-old computer, I make the assumption that they're being factual

Is referencing the fact that I was a drill sergeant supposed to be an insult?

Typical DA civilian

And, you're asking about the user experience between three model lines with identical operating systems ? Lol

Don't you work in IT?
