When I first hit Reason up (started on Fruity Loops) I was wow'ing over the possibilities it unlocked compared to FL at the time. Now it's like 'meh'. But yeah I use reason and have used a bit of Logic Pro (which I really like) so I know my way around that too.
Garageband is really good for beginners, especially the latest one. I loved it when I used it a few months back, has the main stuff needed for production with the 'no nonsense' view to it. Very easy to use.
