    OK, two topics just read on here. about Macs and PS and Macs and Flash. Can I have some opinions about Intel Macs and working with PS and flash. I'm talking about real work situations where you have PS, flash, dreamweaver all open at the same time.
    I'm considering a Mac PB but the evidence so far appears to be that PS runs slow, Flash runs slow, and seeing as the majority of web users (clients etc) have IE on a PC, what's the business argument for going down a Mac route. I'm not into PC/MAC debate here, I think the MAC looks better than a PC . . bla bla... What I need to know is the answers to the above as an argument for switching to Mac.
    Really appreciate input from those using Macs who've switched.

    buy a mac, run wndows on it... when PS and Flash come out properly for Intel then try then in OSX and if still shite, continue running windows... And you'll still have a nice Mac

    I second that... DEFF DO NOT RUN OSX. I am constantly having problems.

    Engage - that was my baseline argument.
    I remember, you bought a Mac PB didn't you (previous thread way back)? And you're using it in a professional environment (for client work etc) running boot camp? Have you had any problems as its beta software?
    I am sadly very shallow and tempted to just do the same - by the mac but run windows until problems are sorted but since it would become THE computer that my business used I'm anxious that it would be too flakey! What's your experience - do you use it everyday, not bother to back up work etc Are you completely comfortable with it?

    mine is not even a powerbook just a macbook (black one) and it runs fine... the only problem I've had is that I was so eager to get windows on it... I used a borrowed version of xp and sice then the person has decommisioned the copy of it... but that is a windows situation... other than that though its brilliant...

    I have a bluetooth mighty mouse and keyboard and flat screen at home and at work so I just take the laptop between the two.. and finally a laptop powerful enough that isn't bulky and looks like shit...

    ... going to update bootcamp this afternoon... as I foolishly put a disk into see what was on it... and it put my drivers back one step... so now my scrollball works again on my mighty mouse, but my speakers on the macbook still play when headphones plugged in... that is the only real problem I've had so not to shabby (a mighty mouse with a wire works fine either way)
