Re: Get a custom built PC if your main use is photo editing.

there is no arguing Macs are a better system because of it´s functional simplicity and less virus / software problems but then again it´s a closed system,and there is the biggest problem . upgrading and repairing costs too much compared to other systems once you pass the guarantee period.

I'm in agreement with most of your post. The above, however, is kind've a silly statement. Of course there's arguing - people discuss and argue about this all the time, and since it's subjective, there's no exclusive correct answer to bring the arguments to a halt.

The other thing I'll mention is that, with desktop PC's, you can often get more component power for your buck by buying a big brand desktop like an HP or a Dell, counter to what you suggested. However, to get a reliable desktop with quality parts you will be better off building custom. It's actually really easy to custom-build a desktop yourself, too, you don't need a shop or a neighbor if you do a little research yourself.

... and, whether you build it yourself or have someone else do it for you, you'll actually get one without the bloat preloaded!
