I bought a cutting edge i7 powered Windows 7 desktop PC last year and nowadays I'm ready to throw it out the window. Why? Because shortly after I bought that I bought a MacBook for the first time ever. I knew things had to change when I was taking videos on my new iPhone and noticed the videos appeared perfectly on my MBP... but cockeyed in Windows because I didn't hold it sideways. I went through 5 different software video tools before finally downloading Windows Movie Maker and modifying and resaving the video files JUST SO I COULD FLIP THE VIDEOS RIGHT SIDE UP AGAIN. That was it for me. I noticed once I got used to iPhoto the ease of being able to edit photos on the fly and create gorgeous work that I could instantly upload to Flickr was an absolute joy to do. Editing media content on my MBP that I created was actually fun. But on Windows? It's like hitting a brick wall. Their Windows Live suite bucket of moose piss can't even touch iPhoto. I'm done with Microsoft. I simply cannot move forward as a content creator using a Windows 7 computer. Don't even get me started on the bugs, driver conflicts and hardware crashes either. The only saving grace is Windows Media Center, which is awesome.... when it works. So now, I'm exploring the idea of switching over to an iMac or Mac Pro. As it stands now, basically I use my computer to watch TV, work on web design, light gaming (such as Eve Online, adventure games, etc), and editing photos/videos. I've been using iPhoto but am already graduating on to Aperture for more extensive editing, and may soon invest in Lightroom on top of that. Since I already have a monitor, would I be better served in getting a Mac Pro, or should I dump the monitor on eBay as well and get an iMac instead? I figure I can get $1500 or so by selling off my PC on eBay, and might put up a few hundred more of cash, so my budget is between $1500-$2000. I'm also wondering about a TV alternative. I'm using a WinTV tuner now with Windows Media Center, and see the Apple Store only lists the Elgato TV Tuner as a TV solution. Is that the closest equivalent to getting Windows Media Center functionality, or is there something better? To be honest, the only major thing holding me back from jumping ship is the royal pain in the ass it's going to be to sell off and ship my current desktop PC via eBay. I'd rather just sell it off locally if I could but I'm not sure who might take it (Best Buy maybe?) Could use some advice on this too. Any thoughts appreciated. Dumping the desktop would rid me of all things Microsoft forever.
