Depends on the interface you plan to use.

You can get a Windows PC that will be spec'd just as high, or higher, than a $1500 for less than half the cost. The biggest downside to it being that you'll likely only get USB with it, and can't expand to FireWire or Thunderbolt.

A Macbook Pro is going to give you Thunderbolt, so you can run FireWire or a PCI interface on it, which is super handy. That being said, if you only plan to record 1-2 tracks at once... even up to 8, if you have a decent budget, a Windows PC is still the cheapest and most cost-effective route.

Neither one is really better - the Mac has Apogee and Metric Halo, which are excellent, as well as Logic Pro, but that doesn't mean you can't get the same thing done on Windows - the Mac is just optimized a bit better for the audio side of things, but not so much to spend twice the money IMO.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
