If you already have a PC, and don't want to spend money on getting a 
Mac, obviously a Mac isn't part of the answer.

However, Garageband and its big brothers (Logic Express and Logic 
Pro) are really kool music products, and Garageband comes bundled 
with every new Mac. The upgrade to the latest version of Garageband 
is part of the iLife suite for $79. That's the latest versions of  
iMovie HD, iDVD, iTune, iPhoto and Garageband.

They integrate quite well, also, which is why they're sold as a suite 
of upgrades.

BTW, Mac programming in MacOS X is very kool. John Carmack of id 
Software used the original version to create Doom. Tim Berners-Lee 
used it to create thefirst web-browser. A version of the Mac 
development software is bundled with every new Mac and the latest 
version is availableas a free download from Apple.

You can use it to develop Mac/X-WIndows GUI applications, or plain 
old UNIX CLI programs.
