There are a few things that can be frustrating, but there are ways around any "mac" issue you may have.
Join the mac club, its fun... watch a few of the pc mac ad's just to make yourself certain!

macs are superior machines especially for photo & video editing.

it is true that there are certain types of software that are not available for macs yet. one example is lumapix. however, i am not sure whether it could be run if you operate "parallels" on your mac.
ETA: i found out some people can run it on parralels on the new macs that have intel chips, but a lot of people report problems with the program.
a spreadsheet program i use at work called lotus 1-2-3, which was a precursor to excel, also does not exist for mac, but theres no reason you should want/need to use lotus over excel anyway because excel is better.
feel free to ask any questions - i have had my mac powerbook since 2004, and used macs in college & highschool prior to that. i use a PC daily and despise the PC, but my company is too cheap to buy everybody macs.

I've also got a friend who runs linux on his mac, and it works perfectly, and he can run any windows program with ease.
