    It depends on what you need to get done. IM is too broad. Are you looking for SEO tools, PPC, what?

    SEO: SEO Power Suite for basic SEO stuff and check rankings
    PPC: Adwords Editor
    Market Samurai

    I don't use a whole lot of tools, really. I just do the work, but that is what works for me.

    Again, depends on what sort of tools you need. I use Open Office suite instead of MS Office. ScreenCast-O-Matic is a great screen capture tool. The majority of page developing software is web-based so it's good on either system.
    And Mac's preview feature is the bomb for re-sizing images - no extra software required.
    Lastly, to convert anything to PDF and keep the links alive I use printfriendly.com

      There are so many web-based services these days, whether it's email, keyword research, Wordpress, word count tools, etc. But I still use apps on my Mac that are crucial for my IM endeavours:

      Byword: I absolutely love this little text editing app. It is lightweight, elegant and just customisable enough (tip: select 'typewriter' mode when you are bashing out a first draft of anything.)

      Pages: whenever I need to do more robust formatting I turn to Pages. Pretty up the doc in question and then export in the file format you want.

      Mindjet Mind Manager: there is no better tool for brainstorming ideas. I also use it to map out ebooks and other forms of long content. There is a facility to export the entire map as a text document - an excellent option if you want to 'birdseye' and modulate your content rather than starting at a block of text.

      Transmit: solid and user-friendly FTP client.

      Pixelmator: an absolute must. Pixelmator can handle just about any design need you may have, from editing photos to creating logos and headers.

      Mailplane: opens up multiple Gmail accounts in a single window.

      1Password: stores every damned login and identity you may have, with one click autofill. Essential, and you will weep if your computer crashes without having created backups.

    Run a Windows Virtual Machine for the windows-only tools.

    Mac's are overpriced and under powered. Unless you need it as a social symbol, just get a Windows PC.

    The people who say that Windows is vulnerable to viruses don't know how to secure their systems.

    On the whole, you get what you pay for.

      Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

      A look at the specs would tell you otherwise. They're pretty powerful, and the OS is great to work with.

      Far as tools go, here's what I use:
      a. TextWrangler (free) - notepad replacement, you can edit any code in this one
      b. MS Office for Mac 2011 (one time payment) - works just like the Windows version
      c. SnagIt for Mac for image capture. Camtasia for videos if you need
      d. iMovie (built-in) is rock solid for video editing
      e. FileZilla (FTP), Firefox & Chrome (browsing), Skype etc are all cross-platform so no issues there
      f. Audacity for basic audio editing and recording (again, cross platform)

      I'm not sure about specific tools for marketing or SEO, because I don't use any of them. I'm pretty sure I've seen Mac versions of the most popular ones though.
