I’m really close to throwing this phookin’ thing out the window! 2GB of Ram, a rockin’ video card, and this thing is crashing Photoshop and Explorer left and right.
I just got a photo-shoot done and the images are on a DVD (each about 64MB each.) I swear, I go to Photoshop to open one, and the darn thing flips out. I’ve had to reboot the computer a number of times and Photoshop just crashes for no apparent reason. It’s not like the horsepower isn’t there. I’m an industrial designer and I’m not used to working with images this large. is this what graphic artists put up with all day? I’m about ready to cry, I’m soooo frustrated. And of course, there is a tight deadline.
My question is this: do Macs really make that BIG of a difference when working with these monstrous image files? I obviously can’t switch to Mac as I use CAD programs (don’t tell me about Bootcamp/Parallels.)
I freakin’ hate this machine. $4000 piece of crap. Don’t ever, ever buy a dell. Get a Lenovo.
