Welcome to the "Apple rules everything" world. There are plenty of people in it. For the rest of us...well...we can complain and say we won't give them our money for it. About all we can do. Or just give in and buy one, which I won't do.
Apple seems to have quite the stranglehold on the sensibilities of "professional" photographers. I am not aware of any function Apple does that pc can't - except Apple is more "Elegant" in doing so. We have several macs in the lab at school and that has been my experience of their utility. I don't like the expense, I don't like the smug demeanor, and I have discovered that most of the pros around me seem to share my feeling, but also seem drawn to the elegance.
There's also Lighting or Light-it, an ipad-only magazine focused on lighting (!). The content of these two publications seems of interest to me, but I have no tolerance for smug artificial exclusivity, nor for the obvious manipulation: "if you want the mag, you gotta go apple", or real
pros use apple products. I pass...
