Mobile Laptops: Windows or Mac?

Hello!

If one was to dedicate a laptop completely to (primarily) audio and (some) video editing, which is more condusive? Windows or Mac? I am going to be recording live music, running loops, creating beats, etc., and also editing a lot of pictures and some video.

Would a Mac be preferred for this? If so, why? If not, why not?

Thanks in advance for any input.

For video I would go Mac, Apple has a current offer buy a new Mac get a discount of Final Cut Express HD.

You can keep and use your windows software, Apple has the Boot Camp technology that allows you to dual boot OSX/ XP/ Linux.

You can now run windows XP in an OSX window, safely behind OSXs UNIX firewall, with virualization software from Parallels.

So with the Mac hardware you have more software choices that will run natively, and OSX is UNIX so if you are adventurous a recompile will allow you to run UNIX apps also.
