video editing is decent, and 3d modeling is good.


linux is good cause its free, and you can modify it all you want (full source etc), but only if you know how to code. It can take a while to learn for non-unix users unless it's been pre-setup as a thin client (for web terminals), myth tv box, etc.

as far as "just working" or being "easy to use", linux is always almost there, but not quite. Macs take care of that (they run on bsd, which is unix-like and somewhat similar to linux) with a very nice UI and packaged software.

Re: Macs

I have a few friends in my major that went MAC for the laptops. I know of at least two that really regret the decision.

Re: Macs

It is noticeably faster. So far no problems, it is a beta version though. I like it.

Re: Macs

I am on my second Mac and and I love it. I am not going to argue with anyone who is a computer programmer by trade, other than to say you guys don't know what you are talking about.

Just kidding. But I chose mac primarily because of its advantages with audio and visual production. I like to mess around with electronic music production and I can assure you that there isn't a single succesful DJ in the world who uses anything other than MAC.

So I guess it comes down to what you are looking for.

Careful, you're exposing yourself to a whole lot of exploits with Safari.

Edit: The speed results you're referring to are marketing material put out by Apple. Reality differs however.

well, so far I really like it. And although those web sites say it is slower, it doesn't seem slower to me at all. So, I think I made a good purchase.
