iMac or Windows[i7 16GB 4 GB AMD Graphics Card] Laptop for Designing?


New Member
I am using Dell 7000 series and iMac for graphic designing. But the quality of iMac graphics is always crisp as compared to dell laptop graphics. Is iMac better than windows for designing?

No, they use the same fundamental hardware and both OS's are more than capable of doing the work we do in Design. The only real difference (to the user, not the techy who cares about the unix core to os-x) is the way the interfaces are designed. Obviously this is comparing with like for like specs etc.

If your laptop graphics is not crisp then you need to check your output settings or if it's purely a visual thing based on the screen you may need to compare the physical hardware and what the resolutions are etc.

Dell 7000 range doesn't tell us anything - it's like saying you have a 13 inch mac - but the Mac come in a few different configurations, like a Dell would.

What are the actual specs of the Dell 7000.
It could be anything from graphics card down to the screen.

What's better for your pocket? Windows computers all the way. You can build the exact same Mac laptop using custom PC sites for about half the price you would buy a Mac for.

And they all do the same thing.
