What happens if your corporation hands you a PC instead of a macbook for work? Although macbooks have a higher market share today, it's still dwarfed by PC's - something that nowadays employers want experience in.
Not to mention: Brick and Mortar support does nothing for you if the nearest mac store happens to be 100 miles away.
Agreed. I recommend Macs for most as I find that the average joe/jane seems to find OSX easier to use long-term. For now, I think most people who've grown up on Windows machines should have no problems navigating their work machines.
But I don't think I'll ever understand that even after a month spent with a Mac. I like the Macbook's touchpad and battery life, but all that's never enough for me to justify the premium.
