It is true that workaround are somewhat common on Macs, but I've had a Mac for over a year now and I find myself somewhat lost on PCs again. Mac's take getting used to, but once you are used to them they are much easier to navigate than most PCs. Mac's allow you to set up the system exactly how you'd like it, which makes personalization of programs and the like to be easier.
I don't have BES, nor do I need a PC for work, but I would say that this would be a deciding factor. I have Parallels with Windows XP Pro running on my Macbook, and I am really impressed with how it works. I just got the whole dual boot thing going over the last two weeks, and every program I've tried on it works fine. I'm not sure how stable or secure it is, so I don't know how safe I feel viewing sensitive material on it, but I would really suggest using a Mac. Ask your company, maybe they will provide a PC for you (just a thought).
Best of luck on the decision, and let me know if you have any more questions.
