You can NOT buy a better Laptop than a Mac, seriously...you just can't. If you need a desktop replacement, than fine...buy an Asus (they are still great). But for general mobility and a great OS, Mac OSX Lion is GREAT! Also cannot forget to mention the look and feel. I bought a Macbook Air and it's amazing. The trackpads on mac's are phenomenal.
IMO Mac desktops are a waste of money for anyone not in the professional audio/video scene.I'm the IT guy for an Art/Video school
and we use a great deal of Mac's and PC's and I've really come to respect how awesome mac's are. Too bad Apples server software is a damn joke.
I must concur with the part about the laptops. having had many laptops over the years, and having helped people with tech issues on their laptops over the years, I can say that straight up, they are THEE LAPTOP. Now if you need a gaming book, I'd say ASUS or MSI are where you should go with your money, but if you want a laptop to perform extremely well and be mobile (as well as say playing W.o.W. on it) Mac's are where it is at.
I've also made the swap recently to an iPhone 4s. I do love it. I'll admit, I miss widgets. And I do miss some of the customization, but I will gladly take the quick and easy route of moving my entire music library as well as some of my movies from my computer to my phone via iTunes (and for the people who think you can't put CD's on it, you are wrong. You have to use iTunes to move them over yes, but iTunes refers to the program, NOT the store). Honestly, I see why it's the top mobile device. Android is sweet, and it'll always be my second love, but after making the swap, I may stick with it.
I cannot comment on iPads, but I will say I will NEVER own a desktop apple product. I had a G5 iMac back in 05. It was very nice for a while, but eventually the HDD died inside and would have been far to much hassle to swap out, also for the price I could have had a much better PC (wish I could go back in time :\).
