I have been a Mac user at home for about 4 years now, I still use a PC at work but I would only ever spend my own money on a Mac. You are right when you say they are expensive but like most things in life you get what you pay for. My MacBook is 4 years old on a old version of OS-X and has never crashed once, I think it would be hard to say that about a 4 year old PC.
I see my Mac as a longer term investment so I dont mind paying for it. As far as being better for photographers I guess thats a personal preference as its what your used to. The PC to Mac learning curve is not that hard but the software you run and speed of the machine is more likley to dictate how good it is at processing photos.
I use Aperture 3 on my Mac and as its an Apple product it runs so well and intergrates with other Apple software. I think people like the realiblity of Macs, I love Apple but I wouldnt buy their products just because they look cool - they have to work as well.
In my eyes every version of Windows since XP has just got worse but thats just my view.
