Apple vs PC?

I have used pc's my whole computing life but recently have been intrigued by the Apple lines. Has anyone made the switch to Apple from being a hardcore pc user? Are there distinct advantages/disadvantages?
Thanks for your help,

I can't.

My income is tied to software creations that run on Windows. I guess I could switch and live the life of an artist, but the prospect looks too grim to me.

I'm waiting for the fabled prospect and now reality of Apples with Intel Inside. I'm fully willing to develop and run my windows software creations on Virtual PC. Also, I'd like the chance to try putting XP64 on a Powerbook.

I used to be into 3D Modeling and I used programs only available on Windows. I also used to be poor. Now that I'm more of a standard windows user and have a bit more money, I'm thinking Apple.

That's what's in my crystal ball.

But I have to deal with the here and now (boring?) then dream about the 64-bit yonah that is what I've like to have in my next laptop.
