Please excuse the ignorance - I am just the money supply when it comes to Blender. My background is I am an electronic engineer, but PCs leave me cold and I don’t understand graphic card specs and the difference between different processors/RAMs/Motherboards and how they relate to Blender.
My 12 year old son has been using Blender for a couple of years, generating pictures and using the game engine, and is expressing interest in following 3D animation for a career. He has struggled with our 10 year old windows XP PC and the time has come to upgrade it. I would like to get a computer that will be future proof when using Blender as this is probably the application with the most exacting requirements.
So the question is should I look to buy a iMac, Windows or Linux computer and what specs should I be looking at? If there is a web page anyone can point me to I am fine with that.
Thanks in advance
