I buy macs, despite the premium, but my macbook pro just died and fcpx may signal the end of needing a mac to edit video. Should I not buy a mac?

I edit a lot of video (on final cut pro). When FCPx got announced, I joined the chorus of disappointed editors, thinking I was stuck in fcp7 until something came around.
But last night my Macbook pro just died, and I'm wondering: should I not automatically replace it with a new mac? Have windows computers gotten any better (I haven't really used one for almost a decade)? Should I assume that Apple released a beta and that full functionality will return to fcpx in the near future? Mac and fcp7 installed? Mac and avid?
24 hours ago, I was much less interested in these questions, but now I need the help.
