    Here is the low down. My sister's boyfriend wants a plotter. Here is what he has, what he needs it for, and everything else. If any of you know have one, or know about plotters -- please respond. Thanks!

    What he has:
    - 15" G4 Powerbook, 1.33ghz
    - Adobe Creative Suite

    What he wants to do:
    He does airbrushing for a customs shop here in California. He needs to scan designs into his Powerbook, covert those to paths, print it out on a plotter and use the vinyl sticker as a guideline.

    What he is interested in:
    He saw this plotter, noticed it comes with plug-ins for Illustrator. Would this be a wise choice?

    BASICALLY, people have been telling him to buy a PC and do this with Corel, but he has a Mac and knows he can do it with Illustrator. If there is a better Mac solution out there, please let me know or give me any kind of suggestions. If you have any further questions, let me know -- thanks!

    This is really a no-brainer. Your link explicitly mentions the Mac. If the Mac is supported, get it. With the Mac and Illustrator, your sister's boyfriend will produce art. With a PC and Corel Draw, he will produce business graphics.

    Well, basically I wanted some input from people who actually do this. This was just only one example, maybe someone who is in the business had some other suggestions.
