Question and answer
what computers can and cannot do?
1. Do buy the most powerful computer you can afford. A powerful computer, properly configured, is the heart of a successful digital workflow. 2. Don’t make price your only consideration. [ One of my favorite quotes is “You may not always know when you’ve paid too much, but you’ll almost always know when you’ve paid too little.” 3. Don’t buy any computer until you’ve determined your
needs. Wants and needs can be as far apart as East is from West. Buying a computer that meets your needs will keep you from spending too much money and wasting too much time. 4. Do let your workflow determine your needs. Spend the time to carefully map, (aka flow chart), how images move through your workflow. What’s the first thing that happens to an image once it is captured, all the way through to the last thing that happens to the image? Not only will this help determine your real needs, it will also help you find and eliminate bottlenecks and redundancies in your workflow. 5. Do some research and ask questions of the builders you’re considering. Why do you use this processor? Why is your computer configuration different than Brand X? Why don’t you include the Whirlygig 5000 in your computers? If they take offense, or can’t give a reasonable answer, you should probably look elsewhere. 6. Don’t be seduced by advertising that heralds the latest and greatest whiz bang feature or component. Find out if it will make a real world improvement to your workflow or just massage your ego. Just because a new video card is tearing up the gaming world doesn’t mean that it will do the same for Photoshop or any other software in your workflow. A slightly faster processor may not reduce your workload by even one minute at the end of an 8 hour day, why should you pay $300 more for it? 7. Don’t buy into the “all-in-one” computer. Trying to do everything on your new computer is not an efficient use of its power. Writing letters, sending email, surfing the web and balancing your checkbook can be accomplished just as quickly on a five year old Brand X. So don’t throw out the old work horse, find some other work for it to do. 8. ]
