Lately, I've been trying to dive into photography a little deeper. I'm also at the point at which I'm in need of a new computer - my current machine isn't much newer than an Apple IIc. Other than every day computing, my main use for the computer will be storing media and editing photos. I'll likely be using Photoshop because I can get it cheap as a student. What should I consider in terms of hardware and performance to work well in photo editing? Is there anything to consider in terms of monitor quality or graphics processing to make sure you are getting a good visual of the photo you're working with? I'm leaning towards a PC desktop as I don't want to shell out the bucks for a Mac, but (at the risk of opening that can of worms) is there a significant difference between PCs and Macs in terms of photo editing? In short, for you photo buffs out there, what would be the specifics of your ideal photo workstation and can that be reasonably approximated without breaking the bank?
