Help me decide about getting a mac

I have had a windows computer for as long as can remember at home. However, I am sick and tired of how it always crashes or freezes or how I always get stupid spyware and adware. I want to switch to a mac. However, I have only used Macs in school and they were emac G3's and I only used a Power G5 once. So my experience with using them is not that great. I am going to college in the fall for photography and digital imaging and I figured that a mac would be good for that.
But macs dont have as many games as Windows and I cant decide which mac to get. Originally I was going to get a Powerbook G4 15 inch but when I found out I did not need a laptop for school I started looking at the imac G5 17 inch which is cheaper and much more powerful. It would have 160gb hardrive, 1.5 gb of RAM, and a 2 ghz processor. Is that good enough for what I need to do? Again I plan on using photoshop on it, watching a lot of movies, using Final Cut, and playing whatever video games they make for macs. I guess my real quesiton is whether or not macs are user-friendly and are they very durable, will they last a long time and will they not do all of the stupid garbage that Windows PCs do. My main fear is that I will buy one and I will not know how to use it or it will crash or break on me or something. Thanks in advance!
