After purchasing an iPod touch for my wife and daughter for Christmas, we have been slowly gravitating towards apple. My wife and I got iphones when they hit verizon, and I bought an ipad 2 on launch day.. I have slowly come to the conclusion that I would like to migrate my PCs over to mac, and naturally the moment I said that my wife's laptop died. So here I am shopping for macbooks, and the price premium is substantial. The general aura of mac's are that they are more refined and the OS is more polished, they also have a reputation for lasting longer than PCs.. So my question to you, mac users, is whether this aura is deserved or marketing. I am quite happy with the apple products we have now, but I am experiencing a bit of sticker shock at the moment..
