I've had my crappy, cheap, MacBook pro with nothing but extremely minor kinks since I got it in 2008, except for one overhaul of the bottom case/keyboard because I spilled Snapple on it.
It has AMAZING battery life, is QUICK as hell, gets no viruses, and is SUPER reliable as well as pleasant to use and navigate.
Ooh - and tech support for Macs is GREAT. WIndows does not parallel.
Also, you need good PEROFRMANCE otherwise your computer is SLOWWWWW. Imagine running, as I do on my mac, Word, OneNote, three internet browsers, a calendar.
Put down the crack pipe. You don't just shout out words like wrong and liar... what are we, Republican congressmen? I'd also love to know where you got a crappy cheap MacBook Pro... a line that's never been priced for less than a thousand.
By the by, "perofrmance" is important... to a point. Anything with a proper chip (read: not a netbook) can pass your "perofrmance" test easily. Talking just about Macs, there isn't one sold now that doesn't pass it... and it's pretty easy to get a PC with similar hardware specs to a Mac.
