I realize this could be quite a contentious issue! I’m looking at buying a new computer. I’ve had a MacBook Pro since 2012 or 2013 and she is getting fairly slow and finicky, and I am considering (a) getting a desktop and (b) MAYBE getting a PC, because I’ve heard from some sources that both of those things can be better for music production and composing (well I can certainly see how the desktop, with a larger screen, full keyboard, and mouse could be more convenient, but I know less about the PC question). I’ve had Macs for quite a while, and I have an iPhone, so I’m concerned about all the difficulties that could arise from making the switch to PC, but I also don’t like the idea of being beholden to Apple simply because I’m used to it, if it’s no longer the best product and if it’s way overpriced. I’m certainly not a professional level music producer, but I would like a computer that would give me room to grow in my work in that realm, as well as in the realm of composing/engraving. Another primary consideration is that I’m a piano teacher, which is now all on Zoom (for the foreseeable future here in the grand old USA), so having a decent camera and video possibilities would be good.
One other question. If I buy the new Dorico 3.5 with my Mac and then buy a new PC (or a new Mac for that matter), will I be able to transfer it over?
Long story short, I think I would feel more comfortable just sticking with Mac because I like it’s overall vibe/look and I’m more comfortable with using its interface, but if you all deluge me with reasons not to do so, I’ll reconsider. Thanks.
