So if I need to purchase new hardware, I'm inclined first to dive into the Mac and OS firstI would very, very, very strongly advise against this. I have yet to work with anyone, blind or sighted, that is a long term user of Windows for whom the transition to MacOS is not hellish and, I hasten to add, vice versa.
Regardless of which direction of change one is anticipating, it is well worth the effort to find a friend, or a library, or somewhere you can sit down for at least a couple of hours and take a test drive of the OS you're contemplating jumping to. It can save a lot of heartache (and, in the case of Apple products, a lot of money).
Although I have, can, and do work with OSX/MacOS, it frustrates me to no end as a long term Windows user. A number of their choices with regard to the UI are completely counterintuitive to me and I stumble with them even though I know they're there. The same is true in reverse for Mac users trying to deal with a Windows PC. This is ignored at any individual's own peril.

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
