Mac versus PC : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

I'm building a desktop NLE system and hoping the computer can double as my personal home system to allow me to get on the net, do office type applications and occasional games.

Should I get a Mac or a PC?

Frank, I've been round and round on the same question and have finally decided on Mac b/c I already own a biege G3 300 w/ 128 memory and didn't want to go out and buy a whole new "dedicated" system. That meant creating two computers, one for everyday processing, the other for video. I called Promax and they're going to partition my drive so I can boot-up the video drives without messing with the everyday stuff. I'm also getting mega gigs of extra hardrive. I'm going with Media 100 LE on the advice of a professional I trust and will continue to build the sytem from there.

Good Luck to you, Phil

What every you use you gotta like it. Unix PC MAC if the stuff didnt work youd hear a lot of shouting so use the computer you know well and configure to that. the Are a lot of PC and Mac Nutz that say there is only one final solution Every flavor works find dont worry about it Unless you have a budget,
