I'm a part-time photog myself and made the switch three weeks ago. First thing I did (On the day it arrived) was upgrade the ram to 8gb and the HD to 750gb. Adobe gave me a one-time "cross platform swap" on my Photoshop CS5 license. The Lightroom 3 license is good on either platform. On company (OnOne Software) upgraded me to the full package of 7 plugins even though I only owned 3 of them when I had issues getting activated on the Mac. All my NIK plugins worked and activated without issue.

I don't use Photomatix or Portrait Pro but I do have one application (Lumapix Fotofusion) for album design that there's not a Mac version for. I simply purchased VMware Fusion and installed Win 7 Home Premium and gave it 2gb ram. Runs great. Even better than it did on my 4gb windows machine.
