    i've asked every UX designer i know and they all say the same: buy Mac and use sketch if you are serious about design

      I'd counter that if you are serious about design, then it doesn't matter what platform you use, it comes down to what you produce.

        Depends on the sort of design too, UI design yes but anyone working in realms beyond that are starting to require power that Apple refuses to provide.

        I hear this a lot and agree in abstract, but practically some tools are just better than others.

        Take something simple like screwing something into a tough wall. Sure you can do it by hand with a hand-screw, but a power-tool is going to be much faster and give you just as good of a result.

        So in the end the quality of a design certainly has little to do with the tool that created it, but you can get there a whole lot faster with some tools and not others and that's important when designing professionally.

        Is being serious about design only caring about the end result, or also caring about the process?
