With all due respect to the OP, Windows users have plenty of options.
Forgive us if we're not all overflowing with sympathy.
Two quotes stand out:
1. "I don't feel like paying 5x the amount the hardware is worth.."
So... your company buys gear that costs 5x what it is worth?! Wow!
I worked at a publishing company and asked the head tech why we were Mac only.
His answer: "For what we do, Macs just work better. What other reason do you want?"
2. "..you all develop exclusively for Mac!"
Again, with respect, I find these sort of comments all over the web from PC users.
Short answer; If you're a pro, you'll use the right tool for the job.
For what I do, that tool is a Mac.
