#1

So i decided to share my workstation, displaying where i do most of the work for my gigs.

Simple set up, here is a list of what i use.


  • Macbook Pro

    I use this for almost everything. Video editing , drawing and eating cookies.



    -Bamboo create drawing tablet

    With this i can draw lots of cookies



    -Gopro HERO2

    I can capture HD video even underwater, perfect for sushi hunting.



    -M-Audio Mic and MXL mic

    Whenever i feel lonley i use the mics to record myself talking about my crappy day.

    Perfect for podcast and cookie songs.


  • MISC



    Berserk , attack on titan and deadman wonderland manga.

    When i want to chill i sit back and read some manga.



    broken bells VINYL , cuz i love vinyls. Perfect music to set the mood for work.

Interesting post, Biancha. :slight_smile:



In Internet Marketing, most software and apps are written ONLY for Windows.

And many, only for IE. [Yuck!]



So this would force many Sellers offering IM gigs, to stay away from the superior Apple hardware.



Thus, I’m curious:

Do you find that using a Macbook Pro in your “industry”, is limiting in any way?

To be honest my operating system of choice is linux, backtrack5 to be exact , i tried kali but i kinda like backtrack5 better.



I have a windows7 pc and what i do mostly on it is play games.



Macbooks are not that good unless you actually need the xcode for ios development and other misc software that only works on apple computers.



Adobe runs fine so i can use any of its products just fine.

When it comes to game dev , unity works both on win and mac but other game engines dont have mac support so its a bit tricky.



i would recomend to get one windows desktop, one linux laptop or pc if you are into security and a macbook pro for video editing and ios development.



there is virtual box , you can emulate a mac OS with it and linux for those who dont want to commit to the price of the mac computers.



Internet explorer is yuck indeed, i havent used it since version 6.

i Think maxthon and chrome do a good job on web browsing.



I never connect to the internet using my mac so im always focused on what im doing, if i was to get online i would get distracted by stupid stuff and cute videos about cats!



So usually when im using the mac im 100% working.

When im at windows im browsing and learning new things.

Backtrack5 keeps me entertained.



i would not recomend anyone to get a mac unless you have money to throw away.

build a hackintosh is cheaper and almost the same results.



I would not call apple computers or hardware supperior, there are tons of ways to get better results using other components. I think apple computers are overpriced and overated.

Very good & comprehensive answer - thank you! :slight_smile:



My comments:



> I have Windows 7 pc



Yeah, nobody wants Shitsta 2 (Windows 8)! :wink:



> there is virtual box



Yup, but emulating Windows on a Mac, usually FAILS for advanced IM software.

So in IM, this is NOT an option.

:frowning:



> Internet Explorer is yuck indeed



:smiley:



Personally, I like Firefox.



> …there are tons of ways to get better results using other components…



True, but 99% of users out there, want to go to the “corner store” and buy a unit “off the shelf”.



No hackintoshes, hackdows, hacktops or hackbooks, allowed!

Reply to @regency85: yeah i think win8 is a waste of time, shitsta 2 indeed hahah , vista… omg… i remember those days… what a letdown -_- .



Firefox is good but i dont like it because of the logo. I know i know , its irrelevant but when i pin icons in windows, i like to have nice icons there, firefox logo usually looks weird or out of place haahhaa.



Yea i can understand how may people are lazy or think that building a computer is like studying physics or something hard.



I just like to play with hardware :smiley: im a curious person so i love to mess up things.

I think its the best way to learn, trial and error.



btw lone wolf? are you into lone wolf and cub?

Are you from game of thrones?

Where is the candY?

:stuck_out_tongue:


#7

Won’t use software… because it doesn’t fit her “fashion sense” on her computer.



Oh yeah!.. Biancha’s a wacko…

[ducking & running!]

:wink:



> …or think that building a computer is like studying physics or something hard.



As a physicist, I thank you.

:smiley:



> btw lone wolf?



Have you been peeking under my covers?!!

Bad Girl!

[slap!]



> Are you from game of thrones?



No… I don’t watch crap.

#14

Reply to @regency85: go back to work , dont forget to eat your cookies!


#15

As an artist it´s really a shame that I still work on a 4:3 screen. But I don´t wanna buy a new one (from financial site) since I prefer having a meal. Life of a poor student :smiley:

cought I wish people would buy my gigs so I can buy a new one cought


#16

Reply to @wackytoaster: well , even if you have a 4:3 screen you have something i dont , superb art skills! Im sure you will make a few bucks and buy a huge monitor :slight_smile: or not, as long as you can deliver , the display has no value.



lets team up , i make the cookies, you make the drawings, 50/50 revenue~! haahhahaah jkjk.



how did you flip the drawing like that? u on photoshop or woot?


#17

Reply to @biancha: Superb art skills :smiley: I love to hear that, but then there are other people in my class that are like 10 times better and then I get depressed again when I see them drawing. There´s still a lot to improve, but I will improve simply because I want to improve (and I want to make it my job)



Yep, that´s Photoshop, I flip the canvas. I think almost everything except paint has this option somewhere. Really helps you to see the errors you made.



Btw. cookies are awesome


#18

Reply to @wackytoaster: there is always someone better, dont be discouraged by that. im sure you will go far!


#19

Reply to @biancha: Haha, yea of course, always reaching further. There´s a moment of discouragement followed by a moment of “I can do what he does.” I mean, he used his hands to draw this and I got hands too. Chances are I also can do this.



Did you get my response to your message? For some reason I suspect the Fiverr app to sometimes not actually send the messages.


#20

Reply to @wackytoaster: just saw it, inbox was glitchy last night.



We can all do what we want! but some of us are terrible at a few things, like me… i cant draw as good as you >_> im going to steal your hands :slight_smile: buahahahha.
