Switching from PC to Mac

I'm thinking about getting a laptop at some poing within the next six months and i reckon that i'd really like a Macbook Pro.

My problem is however that i've been using PC's since my first computer and i'm worried that switching to Mac is going to be very expensive, because of the following points;

  • Mac's are generally more expensive than their equivalent PC's (in laptop form)

  • I assume i'll have to buy all my software again in Mac format - photoshop for example.

I want this laptop to be mainly for photo editing so i thought a Mac might be a good idea; what i wanted to know was,

  • what do you get for the extra expense of a Mac verus a PC of the same spec?

  • Is there a way of transfering any of my software from my current PC to a Macbook Pro?
