Hi, I've been dying to purchase an Apple for over a year now. I currently have a PC which I'm handing over to another family member. Anyhow, this may sound stupid, but I would buy an Apple right off the bat if it weren't for two things.... 01. Flash has always seemed to run slow on apple's, thus I'm worried being a graphic artist (in training) that I won't be able to make any flash animations worth a damn since the machine isn't optimized for it. 02. A bit worried about how well Maya works on a Mac. If you used it, how does it run in comparison to a PC? Thanks for any help you can give me.
