My umpteenth PC is starting to give up and slow down, and it is time to buy a new one. This time I am hoping that you, my dear readers, can contribute. I am the only PC-person in our family, mostly because I run Trados Studio, Passolo, Catalyst, LocStudio and Helium on my computer. I am considering buying a Mac, but can these five programs run well on a Mac? I suppose I need to install Windows in order to run them?
What experiences do you have using Mac versus PC when it comes to CAT-tools? Advantages? Disadvantages? While I am at it, for those who translate into another language than English, do you buy computers in your native country to get the native language setup and keyboard, or do you just install language packs and change language for the keyboard? I have bought my computers here and just installed a Swedish language pack and changed to the Swedish keyboard, but I am going to Sweden in a few months and could buy a computer there too. Thank you in advance for your input!
