PC's running Windows have always been used with Avid...but I'm sure you know that. Avid can read QT and most QT formats...including ProRes. The only thing a Windows machine can't do is ENCODE to ProRes. So if your clients are fine with DNxHD or DNxHR QT files...then you are good. And you can format drives ExFAT and those are readable by Mac and PC.

I am really only sticking with a Mac (Hackintosh) because I have ProRes deliverables for many clients.
