I've only been working on Macbooks for a few months now, but wow, what a pleasure it is to work on these exquisite laptops. Unlike Window's laptops, the advantages of a Macbook are: HARDWARE: 1) Simple to switch out the hard drive and/or ram on a Macbook. On most Window's laptops built in the last few years, such a task implies facepalms and cursing 2) The hardware is priority so there are no drivers to worry about. Unlike Windows that updates your drivers automatically and can often break what isn't broken. SOFTWARE: 1) For all intents and purposes, the programs in an Apple operating system run independent of the operating system (there is no typical registry). As such, to remove a program, you can just move it to the trash. 2) To re-install an Apple OS, you don't even need install media. You initiate internet recovery, and the OS is reinstalled without affecting your programs, OS updates, etc. With Window's so called "Reset", it removes all the OS updates, and all the programs you installed (In most cases, it doesn't even work anyway). With that said, I would never purchase an Apple computer or recommend one to a customer. Reason being, the cost is outrageous. I do own a Macbook Pro and I love it, but I only do so it because I got it for free.
