I'm trying to look for a new desktop which will be dedicated just to my photography work and I won't be using it for anything else. I am a PC person by nature, but I am not opposed to Mac. What are the pros and cons? Everyone I talk to seems to prefer Mac. I'm trying to find some PC users (or past PC users) to get their input and see how they feel about the Mac/PC comparison for photography work. If you are a past PC user, why did you switch? I'm looking for the pros and cons for each. (Please don't give me the "Macs don't get viruses" reason, and please don't tell me that Macs are made with all Mac hardware and processors - that isn't true any more.) I'm looking purely for functionality. Thank you!

For photography work the only advantage of OSX over Windows, I can think of, is the possibility to use Aperture. For Lightroom, Photoshop there are no advantages.

I've switched to Macs after trying one out of curiosity. I've liked OSX better than Windows overall and that was the reason for a switch.
