This was of course the go to system for computing at the time too.

Macs were only used by Graphic professionals mainly in ad agencies - which was where I spent much of my career.

The moment I was able to use Maya and more recently Cinema 4d on the Mac I ditched PCís for good.

So between 2002 and this Christmas I havenít been near one. That changed this January when work decided to get me a very powerful (mid range Ryzen 9 5950 series) Alienware PC - costing well over £5k ( graphics card at nearly £2k).

It lights up - cool... Itís pretty fast with rendering to be fair too - BUT it is a pile of unadulterated crap - because it is running windows 10..!!

I was beginning to think apple had lost it totally - Catalina etc - I was losing faith by in them.. but with the Windows 10 workstation sat next to the Mac - and it is more powerful - no argument - but I do not use the thing at all. It is a huge hunk of junk. Total waste of money - thankfully not mine.
I bought my first Mac in 1994. Since then, I've upgraded about every 5 years, so I'm now on my 5th machine in 27 years. Two of my older laptops, are both in daily use with relations. Not too bad.
