Well, my new job as a freelance artist seems to be a success so far. Even so, my employer might move me into one of his offices instead of me working from home. While I’ll miss working at home (I can do laundry and all that nice stuff while working), it would be nice to get a better computer. The problem is, he’s got Macs at his office.
The last time I worked on a Mac, I was 15. That was over 10 years ago. =\
Now, I assume these are the nice, big, new Macs they came out with over recent years.
The question I have is, not whether Macs are better than PCs (because that would likely spark WW3), but rather, is it much different from a PC? I use Linux. How does that run on a Mac as opposed to OSX or Windows? What can I expect in terms of performance? How does Blender run? Do they use Intel or AMD? What kind of RAM do they support?
In short–am I going to have some serious downtime as I try and learn the ropes? I’ve got deadlines to reach!
