Ugh. Not another of these HOPELESS arguments!

All of the major editing softwares are available on Mac and PC.

The OS is down to personal preference, I prefer windows due to its user-friendliness and ability to run on sh*t computers.

In a $1000 MacBook you get a dual-core intel, 4GB of RAM, and no discrete GPU. With a windows pc for the same price you can get a quad-core i5, 8GB of ram, and a mid-range GPU (AMD 7870, Nvidia 660)

In short, windows has better hardware and runs smoother, and mac looks pretty. Which one do you want?
