Mac Vs Windows
I'm confused. Wondering if I can gauge the community opinion please.

I'm looking to invest in next PC, but want to get something that best compliments my wife's new business (Digital Photography).

It turns out that virtually every arty-type photographer on the planet has decided to go for an Apple product.

The thing I don't understand is why?!

On paper, it seems that if you go for an Apple product it looks like you pay double the price for a lower spec machine (compared to a windows self build).

Is there really some hidden magic in Apple products that make them better for photography etc, or is it just maketing genius?

Heres a reply from a 30 year pc man. I bought a 21.5 imac last year and i will never go back life is so much better. I havent found anything it cant do I got it with microsoft office just the basic version no out look. I have got aperture 3 for 44 so easy to use I have also got photoshop elements 9, this combination seems to work for me. Its fast it runs applications in the own space and everything just works. Thats why I wont go back
