Yes cortana search is so very much better than it used to be, much more like spotlight

I love Win10

Yeah i mean i'm really quiet happy with my win 10 experience. It's damn fast and snappy if you are using a good machine like a P50 or P51 thinkpad.

If apple currently offered really good hardware then it would be a matter of personal preference but considering what they are doing with macbooks and trashcan macs... i just don't even see it as a reasonable option anymore.

Unless you really want to use logic or final cut but then again...
I don't really see any big benefits in using logic over protools.

What I noticed are the poor graphics in Pro Tools 2018 while I still use the same Dell Ultrasharp U2515 Monitor.....

What to do in order to get the same graphic results as I had on OSX, are there drivers to update ......????
Well that CPU is very outdated, but your graphics card is the bomb ( Max Resolution3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz)

But you need to make sure it’s in the x16 slot for sure

I wouldn’t have trusted a salesman....personally but that’s just for me....

I usually just hit forums to find out what works for most people.....

There are some blessing with Mac....due to the limited hardware. Win has a million plus parts...and not all of them work well with PT.
