Though I’m not sure what this discussion has lead to, I have to agree with Moab Man to a certain extent here. The prices they were giving out were pretty outrageous for the specs they provided with the category.
I don’t have much room for examples because my magazine is back at home, but a computer I bought for $800 dollars completely out performed some of the computers they said would normally cost $3,000-$4,000. Now I realize that they were speaking about computers bought completely built and from big corporations that have jacked up their prices because they can and still stay equal with macs, but it was still absolutely nuts. I don’t have too much room to talk, so I won’t say much. However, no matter which way you look at it, it wasn’t the best constructed article and is one of those that may be true for maybe 3 months before it is absolutely outdated. I applaud Videomaker for writing an article on priceranges of editing systems, but bang for your buck was severelydisproportioned. That or I guess “professionals” aren’t very thrifty. I will say that the upper end of the price range was fine, their views on the lower levels of the ranges they provided is what surprised me.
