When Interaction models are a creature of habit (was: What's the best Computer for Designers?)

I made the jump a few months back too and want to address two specific
issues that i hate about the Mac-

Windows management: The Mac offers no way to manage all the windows I
have open. I typically have 3-10 of files open in any given
application and I'm frustrated that they neither appear in the dock
unless I minimize them, nor give me a way to control them other than
scrambling all my open windows.

Closing an application: Why does it keep an application open even when
I've closed all the files.

What's the best Computer for Designers?

I could really use suggestions on the best type of computer to buy for web design.
I'm hesitant about buying an Apple cause most of my site's users are on PCs...
but I could be talked into it.

I was also thinking to get a laptop for easy mobility, but a desktop could be more suited for the job.

What do you like and dislike about your computer?
What would be your dream computer?

Thank you in advance
