In terms of cost, flexibility and software choice I would go with the PC.


You may or may not have more reliability with the Mac though, depending on whether you plan to network the machine or not.


I have a standalone media production PC that runs great and has never had a problem. I doubt it would be the same if it had been exposed to the www though.

I would go with the iMac. Most of my computing experience deals with cybersecurity and pen testing, so can't say anything strong for video editing, however, mac's (in my opinion at least) last much longer than pc's, so it may be more beneficial (time, money, and energy wise) for the apple product. Not an apple fanboy, but rather just saying...

A theoretical comparison between Mac and PC is not the best solution. The differences are so far that nobody can give you a real answer. Best way is to go to some stores and test.


There are also good graphics and video Software for both platforms. As Mac User I give you a look to Final Cut Pro that in my eyes is one of the best solution on the mac.
