I'll re-iterate what's been said. Macs are good machines if you don't like to fiddle with them. I see them a lot like when Windoze was when it first came out. MS used to limit who could write programs for it, therefore they controlled the quality of the apps and what damage it could do to the PC and OS, therefore a safe bet for someone that doesn't like to fiddle and can pay a little more.
On the flip side I see linux like DOS used to be, I really hated the command line. Unfortunately I spend most days in it.
