I really hope you're only talking about video editing/music creation/photo editing software that comes stock
with apple computers... because if you are a serious photo or video editor, you DO NOT use the applications that come with any
So your point is only valid for people who only casually make youtube videos or make (lol) garage band songs....
edit: Mac Pros are good for video editors. A macbook pro isnt really powerful enough to run Final cut and arpeture. If it's something you do often
Final Cut and Avid both run hundreds of times better on PCs than they do on Macs, Period.
People who use macs for video editing are either just trying to be "In with the fad" or they simply know absolutely nothing about computers besides their video editing software...
And I'm saying this from experience, At my school (I take a specialized course in Video Production in a separate HS that I go to every day for 2 hours, and then take my other classes back at my normal school) we have a Mac that cost around 2500 dollars that the teacher bought about 3 months ago, and a PC that the computer technology class built for us more than 6 months ago that cost them about 2000 dollars(Quad core Q66 and an ATI FireGL V7600 I believe), and I can tell you, Avid renders video effects so much faster on the PC its really not even funny.
