So for computer DJ'ing and producing, Apple Macs are the best. Why?

I'm thinking of buying a laptop and ableton live 7, but being 17 and still in education, an Apple Macbook is a little too expensive. I was wondering what makes apple macs so good when it comes to music softwares and what disadvantage I'd be at buying a normal laptop instead.

No,No,No,....... it isn't expensiver than a good make of PC or laptop with plus-minus the same configuration as a Mac.

If you 3 years later check de invoice's of bouth systems, you shall see, the Mac's are much cheaper,no anti virus-spyware-privacy or any other ware are necessary, that alone save's you more than 150,00 euro's/year, so after 3 years that's around 450 a 500,00 euro's. Than one of the most important detail (hum) is the superbe stabilaty of The Mac O.S. No crashes, and full speed ahead on the net with the safari browser. Everything, hard and software works better on a MAC. even Windows OS and also Windows office 4Mac, and the design and plug&play and...the 2nd hand value of a Mac.
I've changed already, long time ago, and i'm so happy with this.

I think Apple Mac is the best computer in the world. No viruses on Mac :D

MAC is the best because of it has very strong and save software en hardware that exactly modified to work perfectly with it. ?I have a MAC now for 1 1/2 year, ? never an error, virus or crash, everything works perfect. ? In 2 weeks I getting MacBook Pro 13 inch?Cool. ? ? ? ? And renember: ?When you go MAC you never go back?Cool

Another Apple Macbook fanatic here! I wouldn't say I'm an Apple fanboy (Windows 7 really isn't that bad!) but I really like the way Logic and Mac OS X work. I still haven't figured it out completely (Logic) but the things I'm already getting out of it are massive!

One day?I will buy one too. PC is good to do music stuff. But I does not disagree with the apple fanboys here. A mac is more stable then a PC. Specialy when you do software for music and grafics a Mac is better than a PC. I don`t have the money to buy one right now. And when?I buy one?I want?one that cost more than 1500 euro because?I want the best. And I will not buy a second hand Mac. ?

I actually run multiple operating systems in my Day Job (IT Manager), and I have to say that Apple is the way to go. I have been running Windows machines since Windows 2.0. Yes that's right 2.0. I'm old, and have just about every Windows Based IT certification, so I can't be called a Fanboy of either operating system. Apple has a slight learning curve at the start, but once you get some of the basics down, it's a breeze. It's way more secure, stable, and faster than comparable Windows machines. Plus there is this nifty little thing called Bootcamp (Dual booting between Mac OSx and Windows) or Paralells (running windows at the same time as OSx)

Apples are way more secure which is why any of the departments in our company who run anything financial, source code, or anything sensitive all run Mac ONLY.
@ Bouncy
You are absolutely right! There is no such thing as the best OS....... Except for DOS 3.33 LOL There are some things certain OSs will do better than others. I run Windows (XP 32&64, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Server 2008), Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop & Server, as well as Solaris 10. Hell I have even run BeOS. It all depends on the task at hand as to what OS gets the nod for the task. But to the poster, for what it sounds like you want to do with your laptop, I personally would go with a MacBook. Get a MacBook Pro if you can.

I never used Windows so i can't say i dislike it.
But Mac OSX really is a very stable platform where you can rely your life on.! :D

PC : universal system that can be configured with the components that the user wants and can afford. A PC can be a lot cheaper than a comparable mac platform, but also just as expensive. You can decide yourself. I like the free-configureable way a PC works.

MAC
: Uses only selected compenents that Apple puts in your system. More stable and user friendly than PC, I recently bought my first mac (macbook pro) and am in love with it. Crashes rearly (allthough I don't use it that heavy). Programs for the mac are a bit harder to find than for PC.

I upgraded my PC last time for half the amount a compareable Mac would cost. I now have an Intel? quadcore Q9550 CPU with 8GB of RAM, a M-Audio soundcard. This costed less than the Macbook Pro and offers better performance (allthough you cannot compare MHZ and GB's from both platforms 1:1).
Let the BASS be louder
Tekhead    posted on 16-02-2010 20:35
offcourse Lead, but you have to upgrade your PC 2x/year to keep it fast enough, a to use the newest software, etc... a mac you can use it for more than 5-6 years, so is the pc than cheaper than a Mac ? I d'ont think so.

i am using an dell laptop with windows 7 and it works perfect. also the dj programs work just fine. the advantage of a normal windows laptop is that its easier to use for other things, making a presentation or writing a text for instance. on a mac there are a lot of programs that don't work on it.
Tekhead    posted on 16-02-2010 20:50
if you wanna have the stability from Mac, and the wide range of programms, than buy a Mac Intel with the programm windows for mac, and everything possible

On Mac you've got: Keynote (Kind of Powerpoint but much better looking!) And Pages (For writing texts)
So what you are saying is rubbish Winking my eye
