Another take on what has already been said.
I use Macs (Pro's, iMacs). I have tried to edit on both. One of the problems is that the Apple screens tend to be way too bright. Looks great but if you try to print from that image, it will be way off. Try to calibrate the screen, with available Spyders or X-rite and they come somewhat close, but not exact. Of course, the image will look different on different screens too.
Obviously, I prefer Macs. If you feel that you want this Mac, and that it will be powerful enough (I am sure it will), and it will meet other needs to be useful for more than just photos, get it, you will love it. It will certainly power a monitor that will allow you to get accurate calibration.
I love the glossy screen by the way, so that has never been an issue for me.
