I have a MacBook Pro just bought it and I love it. Virus free, clean and easy to use operating system. I've used a PC my whole life and thought the switch would be terrible but it wasn't. It's so easy but it can be more expensive. Mac's can run games despite what people say (if you are a hard core gamer, then you wouldn't buy a mac you would buy a pc that can handle bigger games with increased memory, but these laptops i'm describing to you are beyond what the average person owns, and can easily be priced upwards of $1500).
For media purposes, pictures/video/music and everyday games, mac is hands down your best option. HOWEVER, this is for an 11 year old? If money isn't an issue, go with the mac. Also, with macs i've noticed they will last you longer. Battery power is amazing, and in five years from now you will still be able to use it although by then you may consider purchasing a new one. :P
You have to remember you wan't your daughter to be safe on the internet and god knows the internet is full of viruses. But if money is tight, and if this is an issue of money, then go with the pc.
Both can support great graphics and vibrant colours :D
