Mac vs Pc - HELP!!!

I am about to buy a new laptop, as my current one is driving me nuts (far too slow), EVERYONE is telling me to buy a Mac, but no-one is telling me exactly why! My husband (who knows nothing about mac’s) can’t justify the difference in cost and is telling me I should just get the Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue (I must admit I am drawn to the pretty blue lights) http://www.acer.com/gemstoneblue/eng/ , but friends who are ‘into’ photography tell me to get the Apple MacBook Pro (which looks so cool) http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features.html … I figured what better people to ask than a bunch of v. talented, creative people who use computers and take photos…

I don’t know v. much at all when it comes to computers so any advice would be great! All I want it for is photoshop cs3 and playing on the net (can’t live without redbubble). I will have to do some work (after all this is the reason I am asking for a new computer), for my husband at his office where they use window based software. So as far as I can understand I can load windows on the mac and will then be able to use it at my husband office without any trouble???

Can someone, anyone please tell me which I should buy and why – also v. open to any other suggestions…
