New computer

6 days 5 hours ago #710424 by LookIt
Hi,

I am very courious of your opinions which computer you perceive a better choice for (amateur) photo editing (LS, PS, Capture NX-D) and very ocasionally movie editing. I am considering 2 options in very similar prices, but I am not sure which one will provide better performance.

OPTION 1
Mac Mini M1 16GB RAM; 512 GB

OPTION 2
Dell Precision 3240 Compact NB43P3240CFFEMEA_VI - Intel Core i7 10700 / 32 GB RAM/512 GB/ nVidia Quadro P620 (2GB)/ Windows 10 Pro

I watched/read plenty of reviews of this new Mac M1, but it is either compared to older Intel MACc or Windows laptops, which have weaker CPU than desktop i7 like in my option 2. I am totally lost now ;)

Which one would you choose from these 2? Please ignore apps compatibility for now. I am aware that some of them are still pending release for M1.

Thanks in advance for any tips :)
