So thank you very much!
I have left Windows behind for a 24 inch iMac. I *love* it!! I should have moved to Mac soooo long ago! Gone are the Windows headaches, gone are the frustrating `what motherboard with what chipset should I choose' questions! Gone gone gone!
Now I'm not saying the Mac is perfect, but it is 100000% better than Windows!
I've also left Cubase in the dust. That is sad because up to SX3 I loved Cubase but between Steinberg as a company and the bug fest called Cubase 4 I'd had it. I didn't go with DP Dan, sorry, I went with Logic for a couple of reasons that are more related to non GPO projects.
Does Mac cost more than Wintel? Yep! Is it worth it? Absolutely!
So Mr. DPDan I owe you a beer! You were a big influence on my decision and I thank you for your input! Cheers!
