Detox to Retox theme by Marg

lol i polished a horribly rough sketch so now it’s just horrible

now that i have your attention… hi friends & followers new and old! talk to me?

I am considering buying a MacBook Air or Pro for my design work. I know so many designers swear by it but my partner and my dad are both IT folks who say the Mac really isn’t worth all that money because its specs are no longer better than PC notebook specs.

However Macs do seem easy to use. But are there any serious pros to using one apart from ‘they’re pretty’ and ‘they don’t get viruses as much’ and ‘all designers use one’ (yeah cus they’re pretty?)

because it’s just 

so much money to spend

half that money would get me a PC laptop with the same specs?
