I am currently a PC user, but I also shoot photos and do edits. But, I am asking this because is buying a Mac worth the bucks I would spend?

Just get it man! Any Macs are really worth it! Even on the cheapest model. The better Mac Model you choose, you'll get more power and boosts on your productivities, creativeness, efficiencies and lifestyle. If you want to get that Mac 24", that's really truly enough for you, you just don't have to edit photos but also videos. Even 3D and HD. You can do lots of programming stuffs. And earn a living simple or the way you want to be in your life. If you want to have Macs on cheaper costs, search for refurbished new Mac Models on apple.com. Or second hand or used Macs. A previously less than one to two year Mac Models and still having good working conditions are still best to use. As long as it is already an Intel Core 2 Duo Mac models.

oh are you a local Filipino? I am also. But if you are in US, there are Financing (like installment plans) and student plans in Apple Store (US). Go to apple.com store for more informations. Here in our local Apple store, don't have any ideas of any kinds of plans or discounts for Macs here. Try searching in sulit.com.ph ....

No, not at all. For a PC, if you custom build it, you can get more out of it. www.newegg.com has great deals on computer hardware. If you know what you are doing you can build a better, faster PC for less than a Mac. For photo editing you should get Adobe LightRoom and Adobe Photoshop for the best editing, both of these work on PC's and Mac's

Hi there. I asked my tech guy at office and he said Mac is definitely easy to use, compared to normal PC. However, since I have not used it before, it could be a risk. Of course we will learn around it but worth buying? I definitely say normal PC would be better and more worthwhile.

Well, I want a Mac as for a desktop like a iMac 24". But, I am worried about the price, which I know Macs are really expensive compared to PCs. But, if I do get a PC it would sort of amount to the same price. The good thing about Macs is that I do not have to worry too much about viruses and such.
