And you don’t need to spend $4500 on a Mac. You can get the brand new iMac for approx $1200 US.
This isn’t a Ford vs Chevy debate. It’s Rolls Royce vs a golf cart.
You can get a PC that has at least as good a performance as the iMac for hundreds less. I know from experience, my school’s art room has 30 new iMacs. My $600 PC outperforms them.
So in my opinion it’s more of a "do you want a pretty computer with limited customization", or "would you like a PC that can be pretty, can naturally do a wider variety of things, and is much more customizable and also in many aspects cheaper."
Go Mac if it’s only art and prettiness you want.
Go PC if you will want to do other things besides art, and if you want many more options.
