To me Mac's are expensive and you are limited on replacement part you can just go out and buy. Usually you have to go back to apple to either get it fixed or get the part. Since the OS X uses the Linux kernel and the Gnome desktop I do not see any real reason to get one. In fact with the advent of app launchers like Docky and Advest <sp?> my desktop looks like and behaves like a Mac. Please don't take any offense this is just my perspective.
This is not true OSX is based on Darwin which is UNIX, in fact OSX is one of just a handful of Certifed UNIX Systems out there. Linux on the hand is not UNIX, but a UNIX like system, I have used both, I used to write software for a Linix based Firewall project.
My iMac will be 6 years old this year and still runs good, but it is pushed to the max now.
