Gear Question Are you a Mac, or a PC?

I have a PC desktop that is a high-spec workstation. I use it when I need horsepower. My laptop is a mac.

I will note, moving my workflow completely to Blackmagic (e.g. BMPCC and Davinci Resolve) has actually made it easier for me to edit on my laptop. The Blackmagic RAW format with Davinci is super optimized and I can edit with no performance hit on my mac. Prior I pretty much had to use my PC for 4k work.

I've almost always used a PC or chromebook. The only time that I've ever used a mac was to work at the school newspaper at my 3rd college, so it was pretty late in my life. Though I actually just ordered a Macbook a few days ago because it's required for my next school.

I got both, but stick with my desktop pc. The Macbook Pro I got from work just collects dust, maybe use it once a month. I think most peoples misconceptions about pc is due to the fact the bought budget hardware or were supplied a cheap pc from work. There's nothing worse than working on a slow machine!

I use a PC due to the open nature although I do have an iPad it is for my wife.

I think apple works for a lot of people who just want something that works and don't mind the walled in system. I know the rest of my family switched to Mac from PC and are really happy.

I use my PC/Laptop for gaming purposes, while for editing purposes, I use my Mac.

PC. I started out on graphic design on the mac and video editing. Did that in grad school. Then got heavier into gaming, so moved to PC while still designing on the Mac. Now I just do it all on the PC. :)

Was a PC user for years and years... got into an iPhone many years ago and the infiltration started with Apple products. I am now fully Mac at this point and have a Mac Pro (old one, the trash can looking one), a leased iMac Pro desktop and a Mac Book Pro (2018, still with the bad keyboard) and two iPads (because I have not been able to sell my older one) and an iPhone and Apple Watch.

I just dislike Windows 10 with a passion. It is not even an issue that I feel that PC can and cannot do this or that, I just hate the OS so much that I can't go back... plus, I was killing PCs about to the tune of every 18 months as I was burning up heat syncs with the heavy usage that I was putting on them. That is not to say that Macs are indestructible, but I am getting 3-plus years out of Macbooks... and even a little bit more as I am trying to offload more of my workload over to the desktop when I am home.

Weirdly enough I use both :)
Since I am working as software developer irl MacBook is your best bet :)
But I use my PC for everything else(gaming, video editing etc)

Tbh I like both but would love that my macbook could play games :sob:

Also I am a android user and while I like what Apple does with their software in iphones I dislike the hardware...
