Sue, you're overlooking many of the Mac's built-in advantages over PC systems that make it a) worth the money and b) still the standard for anyone serious about graphics in any graphics related field. Walk into ANY publisher, ad agency, printer etc ... and count the PCs. It won't take you very long.

Among the advantages:

1. Studies have shown repeatedly that Mac users are 30 percent more productive and a heck of a lot happier. Macs have 50 percent less downtime and require 1/20th (or less!) the number of technicians supporting them at large installations.

2. The Mac has superior colour calibration and typography controls/support than Windows. Still.

3. Simply put, OS X. This is a huge advantage for creative workers over Windows in so many ways large and small I can't even go into it here. Again, there's a REASON why the creative fields are heavily Mac-oriented, and it isn't because they like shiny things.
