I'm glad the "artists use macs" meme is dying.
>>
>>
>>52418105
Yea pretty much. Anything that runs photoshop will be good enough.
>>
>>52418105
Artists, as in the ones who draw, mostly use SAI these days anyway.
>>
Why do musicians always use Macs? is there any benefit at all?
>>
>>52418260
Something about better soundsupport through lower level software and Garage Band.
>>
>>52418260
Logic Pro X or Garageband
>>
>>52418260
Logic Pro X
>>
It's pretty sad that OS X will die with apple.
Well, at least what OS X once was. Back when they put effort into it.
>>
>>52418303
>>52418305
no

>>52418280
>>52418280
This. Besides that, the best music software runs in both Windows and OSX, Ableton
>>
>>52418260
>Why do musicians always use Macs? is there any benefit at all?

No. The best software is on Windows.

aything made with computers is not real art

What happened to modern baiting? A lot of stuff is jut too obvious these days.

Photoshop works better on Windows than Mac

Kieren you trip homofil

>>52418225
I thought that was mainly with "anime" style artists and every other artist still use photoshop.
>>
>>52418755
What?
>>
>>52418759
Anime is not art
>>
>>52418780
It's something more.
>>
>>52418105
Not pictured. All the lag.
>>
>>52418105
That doesnt seem like a comfortable position to draw in.

I have a macbook pro but I'm honestly tired of the meme OS and poor compatibility with a shit ton of programs. If I were to sell it on Ebay, what would be a decent laptop to buy and use as a replacement? I primarily use it for taking notes in class.
>>
>>52420367
people spend far too much money on something that they only take notes on. what are you actually going to use the laptop for other than note taking?
>>
I actually see more people using Surfaces then Macbooks at my school, it's weird because nobody likes Microsoft and shits on anything they do
But then again 80% of the school uses $200 HP's

Surface Pro 3
>>
>>52420367
X220/X220t off of eBay depending on if you want touch screen. Make sure to slap an SSD in it too.
Surface Pro if you have more money than sense.
>>
>>52422809
This. I have an X220t with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD drive, bigger battery and WWAN.

I draw, take pen notes and play L4D. It's blazing fast. This thing will be sufficient for me at least until 2020.
>>
>>52418340
if they die, why wouldn't they release the OS X source? nothing is lost at that point
>>
>>52423868
you kiddin? hell no
i wish though
>>
>>52418105
Nice bait OP

The input delay on these things makes them useless unless you're a five year old playing tic tac toe

>>52418260
They don't crash as much as windows or need to be rebooted every five seconds, so yes there as massive benefits.

basically, windows is shit. always has been always will be.
>>
I saw a Microsoft video where they had a tablet with lower than 1ms input delay, how long until that technology is widespread and cheap?
>>
>>52418759
People that draw animu use Manga Studio.

Sai is like photoshop without all of the filters and effects to add.
>>
>>52418662
Whatever you say Panjeet. Ever heard of CoreAudio?
>>
>>52418124
>>52418105
it's too bad that photoshop is so damn fucking small on that resolution.

And if you double the photoshop UI resolution then there's not enough space on screen to do anything
>>
>>52418260
OSX has a native low-level, low-latency API, Coreaudio. Windows needs ASIO drivers, who are provided by the manufacturer or by a unstable and unreliable. implementation called ASIO4ALL.
>>
>>52424027

Let's see your art, adult. Is it a facebook app?

>Windows crashes these days unless you add some stupid unapproved driver.

>Rebooted every five seconds lol your hardware is shit.
>>
>>52424027

LIES
>>
>>52424405
But all soundcard in the market have build-in asio, even the cheapest one
>>
Windows 10 is light years better than OSX El Capitan and Linux.
>>
They really should move onto using p50s and such
>>
>>52418759
SAI is much easier for sketching and basic coloring

Photoshop is useful mostly for adding filters and other effects, hence PHOTOshop
>>
Photoshop with touch screen >>> no touch screen
>>
>>52424879
Yes and no, really depends on what you need.

If you consider overheating, throttling to 800mhz, and the beachball of death every 5 minutes to be benefits, yes.

I would like to get a new laptop for design work. The surface is too small. Macs are too expensive and Dell fucked me over with my current laptop. I would love to get another thinkpad because my x60 tablet was a fucking friend indeed(it still works) but don't thinkpads have malware on them?

Anyways, I have alot on my plate right now. I'll just get one of those cintiq alternatives and build a pc and call it a day.
>>
>>52426778
I can only dig touch screens if they're resistive or active. Drawing on a capacitive screen is horrifying.
>>
>>52428164

Maybe you should try one. Resistive hasn't ben made since 2008. Wacom and Ntrig have awesome tech now
>>
>>52428542
I have a note 10.1 2014 ed that I like drawing with, my only problem is that the stylus feels like a toothpick after a while and alternative s-pens have horryfing offset.

I might get a Surface over the Cintiq 13 hd and Yiynova 22u v3. I don't know yet.
>>
>>52424027
Are you stuck in period before time? What the hell are you on?
>>
>>52428164
Have you used a convertible before?

My X201t is pretty gud for drawing, and its i7 keeps me warm
>>
>>52430140
I have a X60 tablet I plan on upgrading, hopefully it can keep the digitizer screen functionality in Ubuntu when I upgrade.
>>
>>52418260
Because most musicians are pretentious hipsters. Just take a look some band names.
>>
>>52418105
A lot of djs at the bar I work at use surface pros with their controllers and mixers. Pretty impressive little faggy computers.

ITT posers who can't do, so they "remix".

Sounds like the perfect brand for them.

For instance macs don't force updates on you. Taking a half hour brake in a live show because "windows is installing very important updates" would be awkward
