Graphic arts systems need lots of stuff to make those pretty pictures. Multiple monitor types can help for color checks and for viewing references while you work. Oodles of ram work nicely with a powerful CPU to run demanding programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter, Quark, and others. Fast file reading and writing speed is also nice. No serious graphics machine is complete without a nice stylus for refined image work. Adding a mac sticker allow a designer to pretend they are on a Mac, but they are optional.
