I have no issue with wanting to use programs Mac doesn't support - i basically just use Sims, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop and such. Problem is it runs them too slow! Playing Sims is a struggle and don't even get me started on high quality video editing in Final Cut Pro (i click something and it takes minutes to respond). I love my mac tho, and I love the system and clean look inside and the folders - just everything really. I'm the kind of person who likes clean and minimalistic looks, the look Mac thrives on. My current Macbook Pro is 2,2GHz intel core i7 for the processor, and has about 8GB in memory and a graphic card around 512MB. I've found a PC with 64GB in memory, 1TB Drive Slot and 2TB hard drive. But with a weaker screen - the colours are sort of grey and cold (which is not good when doing anything related to graphics design which is what I study and mostly do on my computer). But i'm also looking at the 15-inch Macbook Pro with Ratina display at 2,8GHz processor, 16GB memory and 1TB flashsave-thing. I know the computer i'm looking at (at almost half price) is way better, but I love my Macbook and everything about it except for the lagging when doing HQ things. Worst part is, people say the Mac i have now and my second mac (i have one from school which they take back this summer and one at home) are supposed to run all these programs smoothly at the settings they're at but they don't. So i'm worried that even if I order the improved Mac it'll still freeze and suddenly i've wasted so much money for an upgrade that didn't work! Sorry this is so long, but my main question is: should I upgrade to the better MacBook and pray it works smoothly with the programs, or should I switch to the PC even if I don't like the Windows layout or system and the screen is sorta pale? If anyone answers this, thanks in advance! And plus question; since people seem to think that both my current Macbook Pro's should be able to run these programs smoothly, any idea why it's not?
