Lurker with a burning question...
For anyone with experience using Photoshop on both Mac and Windows, is there a dramatic difference? I'm wondering because I'm going to purchase a new laptop shortly. I'm not sure which machine to go with. The Macbook Pro offers fewer features for a much steeper price than the Windows machine I'm looking at (which is a Dell Studio XPS 16... feel free to point me towards a more capable machine if you know of one. I'm fairly lost in all of this.)
If anyone can answer the broader question of why Macs are favored in the industry, I'd be grateful. :]
The primary capability I need from this new laptop, regardless of brand, is to be able to open and work on huge Photoshop files without seeing the system lag or become generally unstable.
Thanks so much for any advice! ... and I hope I've placed this inquiry in the right forum.
