I’m interested in what computer is best for Sketchup Pro. Need to buy as new one and Google search in overwhelming. I currently use a PC and wondering if moving to a Mac is worth the pain to learn new system. Have seen a few people say Mac Book Pro is best for SketchUp. I’m a Designer so will be using for business.
I moved your post to the correct category. HAve a read through this category. All of this has been hashed over repeatedly.
nope. it’s not. absolutely no reason to jump ship, especially if you’re not already efficient on it.
there is nothing here a mac can do a pc can’t.
It’s really a matter of faith. some people eat their fries with mayo, other ketchup. some people drive stick other not. some people prefer macs other pcs.
but as a general rule of thumb, they are overall equivalent. In the 3d world, one could even advocate PC have the upper hand in rendering solutions.
Don’t buy a mac just because ads say it’s THE machine for the job you do, buy a computer you are confortable using. that is the most important thing.
I love using my space mouse and cad mouse. 3Dconnexion has a driver ready to install the moment Sketchup comes out with a new version (but only for the PC). I wouldn’t want to wait for months every year for the Mac version. This is one of many reasons I run Windows. I have software written 20 years ago that runs fine on Windows. With a Mac I would have to pay for software upgrades just to keep up on a Mac as Apple drops support for older software everytime they come out with a new version.
I can buy a powerful PC for way less than the cost of a Mac.
So - I feel like I will never buy a Mac
