PS: Slightly off topic... I still have an Amiga1200, and they are still finding new ways to expand it. Last upgrades I added included usb and TF hard disk... (it's a retro thing lol) It's got an 030 chip in there and 16mb ram lol. Still haven't hit the upgrade ceiling. Amazing it's still going to be fair. http://www.amigaos.net/

I used a company in UK called pc specialist to have one built to order not long back and really can't fault a thing about the process. Well worth a look http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/custom-pc/

They put me on to M2 memory instead of a hard drive, which is working really well.

They didn't have the monitor they recommended in stock but i got one elsewhere for £106 delivered and it's beautiful! http://www.ebuyer.com/484462-aoc-i2369vm-ips-led-23-hdmi-monitor-with-speakers-i2369vm?gclid=CNq1uK3-pMsCFQhuGwodNP0NAA#fo_c=951&fo_k=6ea6712fec304d352e24e9cce0abc07f&fo_s=gplauk?mkwid=sGg7JKQKW_dc&pcrid=51482416139&pkw=&pmt=

Macs run Mac OS which is a variant of UNIX with a graphical user interface stuck on top. You can run Windows in a virtual machine on them, but if you're not computer literate then I think you should avoid that option.

Just get a Windows 10 machine and you'll be in your comfort zone.

Back on track, the link I sent allows you to discuss and have built, whatever you want. It was cheaper than me buying bits and assembling myself. One of their tech guys gave me 40 mins on the phone to clarify what I wanted and what were the best options. They'll install windows 7 too if you like. Might be better to read the bloody links if someone's trying to help. You did ask.

And in reply to HowardJ..i DONT want windows 10 so why would that put me in my comfort zone....again did you read my first post?...I commented about getting back on track cause two photographers were conversing about a different subjct that i posted about which seems to happen alot.....

I just read a post entered in photographers forum about same question i was searching answers for,to which one photographer has answered very well to,giving lots great information....

Well you have fun now, it'll be a breeze finding that inexpensive mac and running windows 7 on it. Maybe better to stick with what you have, it's likely operating well within its limitations.

I suggest you just accept windows 10 because eventually you'll be forced to take it.

I'm not hugely computer savvy but I'm not sure that there is such a thing as an "apple mac or something similar".

Its a Mac or something dissimilar.
