As the title says, I'll be leaving for college soon. Which means I will be looking into computers.
Currently, I run a Sony Vaio with 2.52 ghz and 1 gig of ram. Everything is basically stock. I have been editing with it for about two years (adobe premiere pro, after affects...) and have been satisfied with its results until recently when i noticed then rendering was taking far longer than it used to.
Well, i need some help on deciding 1) If i should get a new computer for college, 2) What kind should I get, and 3) Mac or Windows?
Basically, I can either use most of my money to either beef up my vaio, or buy a new computer. But is it worth spending the money to make my vaio better, or should i go with something else? PC's have not always been my area of expertise. I would like something that I could use for everyday use in college (essays, surfing the web, downloading some stuff, chatting, but above all, editing). This brings up another question, should i go with Windows or Mac? I have been told ot go with Windows since i will be using it for other activities besides editing.
I know my post contains a million questions, but any help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
