As a graphic designer I've always hated the "Designers use Mac" stereotype. A Mac is simply a high performance PC with a simplified OS dulled down so anyone can use it. It's put in a white box and has excellent marketing, which has made it popular with designers. I personally would rather have a high performance PC that can be upgraded as soon as new technology is released instead of waiting for the next Mac to hopefully implement the new features I want (& then pay double for them). Don't buy into good marketing, create it.
