I tried to do a search on this topic in the forum and couldn't find anything, so if this is a repeat question on here, I apologize.
I have always used a Mac to do design work. Now, I have to get a new computer, and I am kicking around the idea of just getting a PC. The operating systems on Macs and PCs seem to be getting more and more alike these days, PCs are way less expensive and now design software is not just for Mac anymore.
So, what do you guys think? I'll be getting and running the usual suspect design programs (Illustrator, Photoshop) and Flash. I'm new to animation and may also be interested in Maya down the road.
