Thinking about buying a Macbook Pro

I need a computer for heavy duty image editing. I think I might go the Macbook pro route, after never having used a Mac before. Hehe.
Looking at a 17", matte screen (holds colour accuracy better), and as much RAM as you can get.
Are there any other options or things-you-need-but-they-don't-tell-you-until-you've-brought-it I should know about?

definitely a good investing for imaging and advance multimedia purposes. The only problem I had was signing into hotmail, but that was a problem with my wireless router connection. If you have any problems or need anything private message me.

Why does everyone think image editing, web design, etc= mac? Windows does every single thing a mac can do and more, macs are trendy plain and simple and they cost way too much for something you can build yourself for way less...

Working in a professional print lab, having had a PC for many many years, and having spent countless minutes laughing at the Mac-user stereotype videos on youtube, I did not make the decision to use a Mac based on the fact that it's more trendy than a PC and I will get laid more as a result. No, I want a Mac because it requires bugger all maintenance, I'm not going to be paying for it, and it has a slight edge over PC's in regards to high-definition still image editing, which is mainly what I will be using it for.
I think I also read somewhere that the screens hold colour calibration better than PCs, but I dunno about that. I was also looking at an XPS, I think it's called, some sort of Dell system.
Anon user, if you can point out a laptop package that surpasses the Mac performance-wise for a cheaper price, I will buy it.

Actually macs have a much better work flow, when I was at tafe I was finishing work on my mac book 20 mins faster than the rest of my class and to the same standard (I was studying graphic design) and before I got that laptop I was keeping around the same pace as them. Also macs and windows handle .tiff files differently and any one working with digital images should be using .tiff because its a format that doesn't lose data so your don't end up with artifacts like jpegs and can still be compressed making it very versatile.

Think before you flame.
