The PC is better for graphic design because it has more capabilities and software for it than the Mac has.
The 27" iMac is excellent for graphic design. The ultimate would be the Mac Pro paired with a 27" LED Mac Monitor.
Any Mac will be a good Mac but it depends what you want to do with it to determine which one to get! For music design and graphic design you want a G5 tower computer. For general use just buy an iMac G5! Hope that helps!
A LCD monitor runs at a lower meg hertz and might be as bright, you can always go with a high MAC LCD monitor that a lot of professional graphic designers use.
No. Mac OS is an operating system.
The file structure is the biggest difference. The Mac is designed more for graphic intense/design programs.
PC in not better than Mac
I would ask him what classes he's taking. If he's in Graphic design, then get him a Mac. If he's in a business major then a Windows based computer, Dell, HP or many others.
That is an opinion question, but Mac seems lots better to me.
MOst are PC's Mac's are usually for graphic design oriented users. I would say 20/1 or more even.
