PC vs. Mac

Okay guys: My work visa is up in April and I need to buy a new computer before then because I'm going freelance and can't use my work's computer any more.

I am torn part designer, part developer between a Mac and a pc. I would like to keep it around (or below) $2000 USD for a laptop.

NEED: lots of RAM, good video card, 15" screen. Basically I want nice screen real estate and to be able to run Maya, or Flash and Photoshop at the same time, a laptop and not a desktop

Don't NEED: an onboard optical drive, a huge hard drive

Right now it is a toss up between the HP Envy 15" and a MacBook Pro 15", I am open to suggestions of others.

Thoughts? Anyone have any opinions about Windows 7? Is it better than Vista?
