    Hey Brickfilmers!

    Can you help me on what the minimum specs a PC should have? I plan on upgrading my PC so any suggestions are very welcome! Thanks!

    Anyone? What’s your PC specs? I’m not really good with PC but I can understand basic terms and I could go along with that. Please?

    Graphics don’t really matter much because brickfilming isn’t as graphic intensive as gaming. It would be helpful to have quite a good amount of memory and CPU power, so maybe 4gb ram. I don’t know about CPU so I can’t really help on that.

    Is a MacBook better than a Windows? I’ve learned that Graphic Designers prefer if over Windows… I just can’t seem to justify the cost. Is it worth it ti buy a Mac? Thanks

    Is Mac better than Windows?

    I’ve never owned a Windows to give an unbiased opinion. However, on what I’ve heard, while Windows are good with gaming, Macs are good at creative activities like film editing and music composing, and graphic designing. It is more expensive to fix a Mac if it gets damaged, and most of the software is more expensive, because it is expensive to make and distribute paid apps to the Mac. It will be hard to find good stopmotion software for free while using a Mac, but the popular free stopmotion programs for Windows are likely to crash.

    It is worth it to get Mac, but if you cannot seem to afford one, you’re better off with a Windows.

    Thanks. I think I’ll have to go with Windows because I do gaming too. :-)

    And I’m not saying that Macs are horrible with gaming, bacause I can run Minecraft just fine on the setup above. I’m just saying that gaming is more popular with Windows, so Windows tries to make the gaming experience more emjoyable. The guys at Apple, really all they care about is making beautiful computers and operating systems.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. The display of Apple Devices are really good and so is the interface as it looks neat. I hope I can get a MacBook someday but as of now it doesn’t fit well with my budget yet.

    I tend to play heavy games like Assassin’s Creed 4 so I guess that fixes my decision for now. Thanks for the help! :-)

    If you want to get Assasin’s Creed or any games like that, you should probably get a PS3 as well. 😛
