Apple computers come without DVD drives. Coincidentally, they were dropped on iMacs just a few hours ago.
I think that is a mistake, certainly since Apple Macs are used for video editing, how on earth are you suppose to burn a DVd with no optical drive?
So don't hold your breath expecting software vendors to sell Mac software on DVD.
If you need DVD and/or BluRay writers an Apple computer may not be the wisest choice. This will only be more true by the time you have saved the money for one.
i could get a Apple Mac now if I really wanted to, but I thought I would wait until next year and save a bit more. i did not know Apple have got a new Imac, I just had a loo, to be honest I don't like it that much, too thin. All this idea of making thins thinner worry me about heat build up. Where are the heat sinks, where do the heat go?
TBH, i don't really know what to do, if i went for a MAc i would have to get software again and that is not cheap and I would have to learn new software.
i been using Vegas for a couple of years or so now, so I pretty will know my way around the basic part of it.
The other problem with a MAC is expandability or the lack of it and if anything goes wrong then you are stumped, at least with my desktop, if say the CPU went belly up it is a 10 minute job to replace it.
Maybe i just want something different, or maybe I am rebelling against windows
Maybe i should think about a Apple Mini, but then I still got to get a external Blu-ray
All this you can do it on the cloud rubbish is getting too much, you can't do everything on the cloud and what happens when your broadband speed is slow?
i got a 10Mb/s connection and that is only because I pay extra for it, if I did not pay I would have a five megabit. and even so upload is only 1.5, so a HD video would take a long time to upload.
i will wait until next year and decide what to do then, but I know one thing, windows 8 will not be in those plans.
