The Best Computer For Graphic Design Powered By Docstoc
					Since Desktop Publishing (DTP) came out in the eighties, graphic
designers have been utilizing computer technology. This has pushed all
graphic designers to become competent with computer hardware at the very
least.What is Desktop Publishing (DTP)? In the 1980s, it was a common
term applied to digital publishing systems. These systems were developed
to replace large, pre-press, specialist design and compositing
systems.Graphic designers rely heavily on computers whether these are
Windows PCs or Apple Macs. Whichever computer a graphic designer chooses
to use, he/she will opt for the best computer that he/she can purchase.
Graphic designers will rarely choose cheap computer hardware.Back in the
eighties, Macs were the only choice for designing and printing. Almost
all design layout and graphics software was developed for Macs only or
even if the software could be used in Microsoft Windows PC, it was much
more reliable on a Mac. Additionally, at that time, Macs were associated
with the different technologies used in the prepress and Windows PC was
just not a practical choice. Today, modern versions of Mac OS X and
Windows allow graphics designers to use design software either in a Mac
or PC - they are no longer forced to choose one over the other.Many
graphic designers are not IT experts and making a decision on which
computer to buy can be quite daunting. Of course, if money is not a
problem, the decision would simply be to buy the most expensive Apple Mac
or Windows PC. But most designers cannot afford to do that. In fact, some
creative professionals have budgets for second hand equipment only. What
really matters to these graphic designers are issues that regular
computer users do not even have to think about. These are printer color
accuracy, monitor calibration, hard disk speed and external storage
devices for gigabytes of data.Recent studies show that the top 5
computers for graphic design are a mix of Macs and PCs and both laptop
and desktop computers fall in this category. But just like any product
that a consumer buys, it really is the personal preference of the
designer whether he/she will use a desktop computer or a laptop. The
important thing is that the user/graphic designer has the appropriate
software for the type of computer that he/she wants to purchase.The Top 5
computers for graphic design are:Mac Pro DesktopThe Mac line of computers
is still widely preferred by most graphic designers. According to Apple,
the latest Mac Pro features the all new quad-core Intel Xeon "Nehalen"
processor which makes the job of a graphic designer much easier. Apple
states further that the new Mac Pro is up to 1.9 times faster than its
predecessor. Each processor has an integrated memory controller that
allows the processors to have faster access to stored data in the
computer's memory, with memory latency decreased by up to 40 percent.
This feature will save a lot of time for designers when they do their
work.MacBook Pro LaptopThe MacBook Pro Laptop comes in 13, 15 and 17 inch
sizes. It has high-performance NVDIA graphics and LED backlit display
which makes editing graphics easier and clearer. This latest model has
battery power that lasts up to 8 hours (on 17-inch version). It is
powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo processor.Dell Studio XPS DesktopThe Dell
Studio XPS Desktop features the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. If you
plan on working with intensive video or 3D editing, you can have an
upgrade to the 16GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM. But its base 3GB memory will
enable you to edit photos, create vector or raster designs with ease. Its
high-definition ATI graphics card creates clear, precise and flawless
graphics - just what a graphic designer needs.Toshiba Qosmio LaptopThe
Toshiba Qosimo is an affordable solution to your graphic design needs. It
is powered by either the Intel Core i7 or i5 processor making it easier
to create flawless graphics. It has a high-end NVIDIA GeForce graphics
card, which ensures that you can clearly see every pixel and frame that
you edit. It has a 6GB DDR3 1066MHz memory and a 1GB GDDR5 discrete
graphics memory.HP Pavilion Elite DesktopThe HP Pavilion Elite Desktop is
an affordable computer. It is powered by either an AMD Athlon or an Intel
Core processor that ranges from an X4 630 quad-core (Athlon) to an i7-
980X six-core Extreme Edition (Intel). All HP Pavilion Elite Desktop
computers come with genuine 64-bit Windows 7 for the latest technology.
Memory ranges from 4GB up to 9GB which guarantees smooth and effortless
run of the high-end graphics that you use.
