Hi! I've decided to upgrade my mac and I was wondering which one I should get. I reccently got a Cintqu 16 and was leaning toward iMac as I won't really be leaving my desk and lugging my tablet places.
I’d go iMac every time. Yes they are more expensive and I’m sure pcs are just as good, but for me, the machine doesn’t often get in the way of what I’m doing and the colours are fantastic. Besides, they are quite sexy.
Pretty sure the desktop screens are done by LG, or at least a large portion of them, these days, mobile is majority Samsung....I know the screens are made by Samsung, but somehow, they seem to get something right.
There are numerous types of panels, you've likely gone and bought a tn panel which is more for refresh rates than colour accuracy. You want IPS if you want colour accuracy. Having said that you're not saying how you're doing the colour accuracy, are you using a tool or doing it by eye.I have two other screens (one is a Samsung) off this iMac
I don't have any hassles from windows, hell I haven't had anything wrong with windows for decades unless I was tinkering with stuff like overclocking etc (I like doing that type of thing with pc's too)
That's because of the thermal design of the macbook pro being basically the bare minimum apple could get away with to keep it cool, hell they had to bring out an update at one point to adjust the voltages etc so one version didn't overheat....Sorry. Not read all the comments above but...
I was given a Cintiq and a pretty high end MacBook Pro a while back when I was working for this company.
I connected it all up and one of the first things I noticed was how much it made the fans blow of the MacBook.
I mean to a worrying level.
That's part of the reason why it happened, the highest cpu's that fit in the macbook pro have a slightly higher tdp than the lower ones due to the extra cores... in simplest terms more cores mean more heat but apple didn't go and change the chassis etc so you get heat issues. It's part of the reason that when you look at laptops designed for workstation type work they're either very heavily ventilated (and noisy) and/or slightly thicker for beefier cooling solutions.It was a really high end MacBook Pro.
I'm not the biggest apple fan but the case design shouldn't be acting as a heatsink, because the cooling equipment shouldn't be attached to it.... there will be thermal transfer into the casing though which is pretty normal with most laptops but if it's getting that hot there's something wrong somewhere.The whole macbook case is a heatsink - that's why it gets so hot and nearly burns the bejaysus off your nads when using it on your lap - like a laptop!
The whole design is weird.
I can't even buy what I want in a computer from apple.... one they don't use nvidia, 2 they don't even run the majority of the software I use without needing virtualisation and/or bootcamp and 3, I can actually get better performance for less by not being restricted to intel xeon processors (no point me going imac, it's imac pro or higher).snip
shock horror... a €2.5k laptop is better than a €400 one lol.Forgot to say - there was a woman I worked with before asked me to help her pick out a new computer. I asked what the budget was and she said it was about €400.
I found a really decent one for 400 - she said she just wanted to book flights etc.
Turns out, the specs on the site didn't match what she ordered, and it was really slow - in essence, should have returned it and got the right one sent out.
But for her, it was too slow and she didn't like it.
She then tells me that she got a new computer and it's fantastic! I asked what it was and she said an Apple!!! [Really excited]
How much was that?
Initially, the budget was €400.
