Current Systems: P4 3GHz, 1 gig, work files are on network which rocks. 2 design systems and 1 rip/print/cut server. All run Flexi 8.1. Design systems run a few other packages (inkscape, gimp, etc). Problem: We are starting to get bigger and bigger files. Customers laugh when I ask for Illustrator v. 8 or less. ("That is almost 10 years old!")... Systems just choke. So, it's time to upgrade systems. What do you recommend? Dell and HP are falling apart, IBM is moving to server only, who's left? Is MS going to die with Windows 8? Is it time to start over and go Mac? Please, all input it welcome. Thanks!
