Seriously guys, get a grip. I'd prefer an Apple over a Dell machine because they look and feel just a little bit better. But as mentioned several times they tend to be more expensive (maybe overpriced) and some parts might be outdated. It's quite hard to say which one is better as it really depends on what you want to do with it. And of course there's the fanboy factor. Now just calm down, grab a beer/coke/water/wine and continue browsing using your favourite browser on your favourite machine with your favourite OS without trying to convert anybody. This is not like religion, you know?
