Is there still a justification for the added expense of Mac over PCs, and do Macs really have superior exclusive business software?
lbloom 2 years ago
We currently have an all Windows PC environment, and I have essentially no experience with Macs in a business setting. Suddenly, we have a claimed need for multiple Macs in one department because apparently the standard in video editing software is Mac only, and they are telling me they can't do the work on PCs. Here are two different things I have little knowledge about: Macs and video editing suites. Honestly, I thought that the difference in Macs and PCs had essentially disappeared over the past few years, and that Macs essentially just looked cooler and cost more...a lot more. Are there really still differences that justify spending thousands of extra dollars for a handful of Macs, or are our marketing guys just looking for cool new hardware because they have been receptive to Apple's own marketing?
