Macs are great for people who love to make excuses for paying more to do less. That demographic doesn't seem to overlap with Linux users much.
So, my MBP that has Word / PS / and pretty much every terminal app other than "free" from UNIX / Linux somehow does less than a Windows box? Any games I play ( not many ) either work in crossover or a VM so that also doesn't count.
The only thing my MBP is "lacking" vs my Lenovo is HDD space ( 128GB SSD + 1TB external that I already used on the Lenovo vs. Lenovo 1TB spinning rust ) and RAM (4GB VS. 16GB which I really don't need for what I do on mobile machines, I just remote into my Desktop now). Price difference? After the RAM upgrade on the Lenovo about $250 more for the MBP. With the Mac I also gain: I can stack two MBPs to get the same height as the Lenovo, or carry 3 MBPs for the same weight, triple the battery life, a newer generation of i5 with IRIS gfx, and a better screen than the garbage 1366x768 screen in the Lenovo.
The Lenovo also has an extremely shitty keyboard, case, build quality ( came from the factory missing a screw, had to be sent back immediately for keyboard failure OOTB, came back with a cracked case that had to be glued back together.... but at least "working") and trackpad, while the MBP has a great trackpad and a keyboard that doesn't, at the very least, feel like you are trying to type on a waterbed.
So, tell me again, how did I get less with my Mac purchase?
There are some nice touches that OSX does as well ( and some annoyances unfortunately ) that are not worth paying extra for, such as remembering different volume configurations for when headphones are plugged in versus on laptop speakers / HDMI sound output.
