Apples are very easy to repair (anything newer than 2008 anyways, as the older MBP are not as much) although the parts can be expensive as you're required to order them in one piece, like the screens for the laptops.
The newer iMacs are possibly one of the easiest all-in-ones to repair cause all you have to do is take off the glass and screen and you have access to everything. Some of the other all-in-ones I don't even want to work with cause 1/2 the time I don't even know how to open the dang things. Guess that's why I'm glad I work with desktop PCs more than anything.
I've been happy with my MacBook since I got it back in March of 09, runs great, but with it being a 2GHz C2D and a 9400M, it's really starting to show it's age. Heck up until about 6 months ago that was what I used on a daily basis. Was almost tempted on getting the 27" i5 iMac, but until I realized I can build a better spec machine and still have the awesome 27" ACD for about $100 less, I decided to build what is now my sig rig.
