What PC or Mac?
I am almost certainly going to sell my amost new CD6SE and get myself a laptop, for a couple of reasons - primarily because I dont own one myself and when I leave my current job at the end of the year, so does my laptop, and I need it for all the usual internet stuff, plus Adobe Lightroom for picture processing. I cannot really afford to get a laptop and keep the CDP so it makes sense to me to combine the two. Portability is not important, but speed and RAM is as Lightroom is a memory hungry (the RAW and finished jpgs are stored on a separate hard drive so Hard drive size is not so critical.
Question is, since I am a lifelong windows user, and need to be able to carry on using excel, word etc what would be a good PC with a good quality colour faithful screen to go for for arond £500 - £600, or shold I take the plunge and look for a macbook? I am reluctant to do this, one because I am partly an applephobe because of their pricing which is poor VFM, and secondly its a whole new O/S and potential interface / software compatibility with the rest of the business world...any advice welcomed
