IMO Macs are overprized. The range of software actually isn't that
big, and with the coming of the new Intel-Macs, a lot of software
isn't even there yet. 

I don't know enough about your working style, but if you haven't used
a Mac before, I see no reason to start with that now. 

With Common Music, Lilypond, Pd, Csound, Supercollider, every
programming languange you want, and with the ability, to run the
occasional foreign software through Wine, Linux is a very good
platform for Composers IMO.
