I have Macs at work and PC’s at home/business. I have one Macbook Pro (which was provided to me) and also a Mac Mini (I bought it refurbed) as it controls and records from my Blackmagic ATEM TVS, when doing live events (bought it solely because of size!) I cannot afford a Mac for my business, as I build my own computers and can build one WAY cheaper than buying an iMac let alone a Mac Pro. I am working on learning some FCPX and also After Effects as well for work. I don’t really like OSX as an OS, things just don’t “make sense” to me for layout and just some really basic things (like why doesn’t the + button make something go FULL SCREEN!!) But I digress, when the rubber meets the road, schools don’t really “pay” for their labs, they can adjust tuition and/or taxes to pay for Apple products, those of us who run a business, money matters!!!
With that said, John, I get having a good work palette to pull from is essential!!
