Default

MACs are supposed to be good for graphic design and such, but honestly, I'd choose a PC over a MAC any day (Just personal preferance).

I think in either case you'll enjoy the computer for what you need to do, but I think the MAC might do this job better if thats what you plan on using it for.

actually the Apple processor is much better than Intel's or AMD's. The reason that Apple doesnt do well on games because of the video card. Apple doesnt have 6800GT's or X850XTPE's.

You may need that extra hard drive space. With all the images and modeling files needed just to create one object, you'll be able to fill it right quick.
