Hi to everyone, I hope I’m not off-topic.
My question is really simple: I should buy a new laptop and I don’t know if I should take a windows one or a OSX one.
I’m really into processing from a while, and I would like to have the better quality for my audio-visual concert. (using max-msp and Ableton).
Thank you so much <3
Do you want to use Processing or Max-msp/Ableton or both ?
if that could be possible, for sure both!
It depends on what you call “having a better quality”, does it mean a better display quality (Retina screen or whatever…) / better performance (Graphic card, processor, RAM…) ?
I need better performance, because I would run two-three programs at the same time, and I don’t want that of three have some lag/freezing problem.
Once again it depends on how much you optimize your code but I recommend you to choose pour laptop depending on the Processor (Intel core I7 for example or higher), the graphic card, a SSD and a good memory capacity (RAM).
Choosing between Mac and Windows also depends on the appearence and the user interface.
Thank you so much, you give me at least a point where to start!
Have a nice day and wish to you th best! <3
Thanks, have a nice day too !
