As much as I hate to say it, Mac. I've never been a huge fan of Mac, but for creative purposes, that's definitely it's forte.

The only way PC would beat it is if you built it yourself. Buying a pre-made PC is terrible for the price you pay. Building it yourself is easy and you can get more bang for your buck. AND you can upgrade it easily as technology grows.

For graphic designing purpose, it's best to use a computer with these specifications:

  • i3, i5 or i7 processor
  • A graphics card, preferably Nvidia
  • 8 gb RAM

If you intend to do critical color photo work you need great accurate video card and calibrated monitor.

 

At one time this meant Mac as the Windows operating system did not offer professional color, only "office" color.

 

If you do not do much critical work (food/fashion/cosmetics) for print, this is less of a concern.
