Are Macs better than PCs for photography work? If so, why?

Resale Value
3

Having read all the posts I can't add much more to your thinking beyond I use both - win at work, mac at home and will not move to win for home - I much prefer OSX to Win 8 and the whole Eco-system (MacBook pro, iPhone, iPad etc)

A common comment is that Mac's are expensive, and they are on first purchase, but they do hold their value for resale. I have a 3 yr old MacBook Pro - cost £999 new and they are currently going on ebay for £520 - £600. Makes for an easy subsequent upgrade for just £450 to £500 second time round.

I have not seen many (any?) win based systems retaining that much value after 3 years
