Aaron B Lingwood writes: RocketJump's film-maker Freddie Wong of Youtube's Freddiew fame compares Mac vs PC for the pro user. The article argues that Apple has neglected their most loyal userbase of media professionals and is instead chasing profits instead of innovation. The shift away from the PowerPC to Intel-based chips as well as the crippling and discontinuation of entire lines of professional software means Mac no longer has the edge over PC for professional use. With PC's costing considerably less and with the PC version of software such as Adobe Suite catching up with features and usability, Freddie, a long time Mac-user, has decided to shift to PC and abandon Mac. Is this the beginning of an entire cultural shift where PC's are for the professional and tech-savvy while Apple products of for the tech-simpletons? Have Apple put all their eggs in the one basket relying solely on marketing for their line of fashion accessories?
