I strongly recommend that you check out Sibelius before buying Finale. I used Finale for years and was constantly frustrated by it. Sibelius is far better in almost every way imaginable - faster, more robust, easier to use, makes more sense, etc. You can download a trial version of Sibelius from their website www.sibelius.com. It costs a bit more than Finale (unless you can get the educational price) but is well worth it. You'll have many fewer headaches. I haven't sworn at Sibelius once!
By the way, I started using Finale on the Mac about 11 years ago (when it retailed for $1000) and switched to using it on the PC when it became unbearably slow on my (now deceased) Mac IIci.
