Macs are frankly garbage, they are overpriced, uncustomizable, hard to upgrade and overall not worth a dime.

The only reason anyone buys apple is that they are a status symbol, they are just like any other computer under that stupid fruit logo.

Want a good computer? build your own.

The more technologically inept (aka "artistic") usually seem happier with Apple products & recommend them to others without considering whether they are actually suitable for the required purpose(s) (and without concerning themselves about Apple pricing & potential software availability problems).

I recently had a conversation with an acquaintance about this as someone had unreservedly recommended a Mac to him - but he runs a milk delivery business & the software he uses to run his business is only available for Windows - so this "recommendation" was just totally wrong. (he would also lose his low cost IT support if he used a Mac - but that's another question)

So - as above - the first thing to consider is what you require this computer to do, & what software you need to do it.
