Macs have the editing niche because of historical reasons. Photoshop was on the mac first. Macs had 16bit audio first and several other things. Power PC chips also had much better fpu performance than contemporary x86 chips of the time, so those thing ran much faster on a mac. Things are the way now because of that, even though the differences between a mac and pc are now superficial at best. IMO I would never buy a mac desktop. I really like their laptops, but they have been sagging in quality too. So I really don't know what to think.

Personally, I like macs for everyday task, and pcs for gaming - and just gaming.

My front line laptop is a powerbook. I love it. Its small and rugged. I would never buy a Mac desktop though.
