Initially Mac was better at rendering fonts, and also Photoshop was initially first released on Mac (because it was essentially the only computer with a color display and the capacity to handle the program they were building.). Overall with the looks and the historical background a Mac seems better for designers. And this still resonates in a lot of people's heads. Question is; who do you consider a real designer? For me this question is all about user preference and therefore experience. Which does not mean using Adobe CC on Windows does not work.
From a technical point of view however the differences between Mac and PC seem very subtle. When looking at performance both hardware used by Apple and Windows hardware suppliers show almost no difference. Apple moved using Intel as well. As published online on adobe.com:
"Adobe has gone on record via their Adobe Hardware Performance Whitepaper to point out that the performance of their software comes down to specs, not operating system. So there is no real evidence for the old saying “Adobe software runs better on Mac.” Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator etc were not designed to perform better due to OS preference."
