I want to upgrade my PC.

I'm having thoughts of moving from Windows to Macintosh (Mac Pro), but there are a few things that concern me.


I use my PC to do these things (in a more or less exact order):

1. InDesign, Photoshop, Quark XPress

2. Internet browsing

3. MS Office

4. Video games

5. Music, movies.


Now I know I can do all these things on a Mac as well, except solving the troubles with Video games.


My PC upgrade would cost me around 200 EU max (video card + some ram), while the cheapest Mac Pro I found on Amazon is about 600 EU + shipping taxes.


Could anyone tell me what is it that Mac Pro desktop or Mac mini desktop have that would make me invest in it instead of simply upgrading my PC?

Is there a "secret ingredient" about those MAC machines or is just a simple overpriced hype?


Thank you for taking time reading this and for any help.


Best regards,

-- C.
