MYOB is a good alternative. It works exactly the same on PC and Mac, but there is a learning curve when moving from QuickBooks. It should be able to handle what you need. The biggest frustration I find in MYOB is the reporting is a lot more "locked down" than in QuickBooks.
If you love the pc product, you can always run it through Parallels or use a company like www.myrealdata.com to host the windows version. Depending on the size of your company and how much you want to spend, online programs may be a good way to go too. Net Suite or NetBooks might be good options for you as well.

You have to install an operating system to install Quickbooks on. I use XP in Parallels with QB 2007 installed on the XP OS.

I use PeachTree because my accountant recommended it when I started the business, and it works just fine. Today, however, my accountant is recommending QuickBooks to his clients. I'm sure they are both adequate accounting applications and I'm sure the Windows versions work just fine with either Parallels or Fusion.
I also run a couple of fairly complex statistical analysis Windows applications through Fusion and they too run flawlessly.
I used to run Parallels, but had serious issues when I upgraded to Parallels 4. I switched to Fusion and have found it to be very simple to setup and run.
