No they're not. If they were, you wouldn't be trying to buy one.

Yes they are, if i could use motion on a pc i wouldnt be buying one. How are you going to even argue that point, $3,500 Mac Pro is a $2,000 PC

Don't worry about the processor. For Motion it's the graphics card that counts.
Oh, and also the amount of memory, but RAM is cheap and can be installed later.
