You don’t have to be a ‘computer guru to run a pc’. And what Rockstar will find out when ‘he contacts the big production houses’ (if they bother to speak to him) is that many of them use both or either. And as I have mentioned in post after post, many people have switched from mac to pc (I’m one for certain.) I also have many mac using collegues that have mighty fine horror stories of dealing with mac customer service as well. If you don’t want to build your own, there are plenty of companies out there that can put together ‘an idiot proofed’ pre-built pc rig for you just like apple can. Besides, when you’re starting out you get what you can afford and will hopefully allow you to work at the highest point of the stage your currently at. I have seen many times people trying to ‘use what the big production houses use’ and get an expensive computer then can’t afford the software they need to work. I worked in a large and well funded production house that used mac’s but quickly found I couldn’t afford anything close to what they used. But I could afford an approximate PC and still have money left for software. The big houses use what they use because they can afford it. I guarantee you the instant something better comes along they’ll change.
