Transfer from PC to Mac

Apr 2, 2012 4:03 AM

Hi, I am looking at buying a 27" IMAC

 

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/apple-imac-mc813-27-all-in-one-10478101- pdt.html

 

However, if i submit a support question, it says I agree to destroy my version of photoshop. Of course Im happy to do that if i buy the mac but im not agreeing to it in case I dont so its a bit chicken and egg really.

 

So my question is, before i spend nearly 1400 pounds on an imac and then realise i cant use my CS5 at all, which will be my main editing tool, how will I know if this is possible?

 

Thanks

    As long as you plan on upgrading to the latest version, anyway, this is not an issue.

    Affordability is an issue and you are looking at overpriced hardware?!

    If RAM and keeping up with your camera is an issue, why would you look at a new computer with only 4GB and only one hard drive?

     

    If you shop around a bit more, you can find a computer with more RAM and an extra hard drive for Photoshop's scratch disk... for less than the iMac. 

     

    iMacs are great computers. I just wince when people think they are upgrading economically.

    What's your total budget?

     

    How technically inclined are you?
