I did consider getting a MAC because I do like the way they look but would have had to have WIN 7 installed to run certain client software that will just not run on MAC.
I have some Win software that I run on my Mac, but it's mostly for lab instruments and data analysis. Have to boot up Win 7 in Fusion, though.
When I looked at the lack of internal storage, lack of proper cooling and zero over clock potential of the MAC's
Many people think those are advantages because of the smaller footprint and dead silent computers (except when using Handbrake or Aperture (which really pushes the gpu). I'm also uncertain what you mean about "lack of proper cooling".
plus concerns over the reflective screen
This is why I bought a Mac Mini.
and the inability to run NVIDIA graphics solution (I also use Premiere Pro with it's Mercury Playback engine is CUDA optimized) I just could not make the case for MAC in my own mind.
I think it's more a reflection on the laziness of Adobe's programmers. If they would start using OpenCL that would obviate the need for writing CUDA-specific code. Apple uses OpenCL, thus gpu apps (Aperture, Pixelmator, NIK suite, Final Cut, etc.) don't care if you have an NVidia, AMD or (to a lesser extent) Intel gpu chipset.
But really, it mostly comes down to personal preference on which OS suits one the best. What I can say is that when I started my position 7 years ago, all but two of us (18 people) used Windows computers. Now that I've corrupted my colleagues it's about 50/50 Mac/Win.
