I Use Both But....

I am a professional photographer and have had a MacBook Pro and a PC desktop for a long time. I use the same Aps as you and find they work well on either platform. Here is my condensed short take on Mac vs PC:

Pro Mac: The basic Mac operating system is much more efficient and trouble free than what runs a PC when you use Windows.

Pro PC: The GUI and the regulation of the file structure of a Mac is a real pain in the butt and designed for babies' compared to Windows...although Windows keeps trying to make itself more of a pain in the butt every day. Apple wants to force you to do things their way just a little bit more than MS (for me anyhow).

That all being said, when it comes time to get rid of my PC desktop (soon) it will be replaced by my MacBook Pro, a big monitor and a bank of external hard drives. My MBP has never given me a bit of trouble and my PC is troublesome every day.
