We recommend a PC for several reasons. First of all, our course videos are recorded on a PC, and the interface is a little different on the Mac. Second, a number of free Maya plug-ins are much easier to install on a PC.
In particular, the Parent Master plugin, which is very useful for attaching and un-attaching objects in Maya, is not easy to install on the Mac. Finally, audio playback in Maya can be troublesome on a Mac.

Still, as any techhead will tell you, Macs can be run on special dual-boot software, so you can boot it up in Windows if you prefer. And, hey presto - you have an instant PC. And Macs are lovely. I am writing this on my MacBook Pro - a beautiful machine, and I would not be without it.
Personally, I have both a Mac and a PC. For animation, I use my PC. For everything else, I use my Mac.
