Instead of playing the Apple bashing game, look at it from a different perspective. Do you want reliability or do you just want "specs, specs, specs"? Most people tend to forget the reliability and build quality side of the equation and go towards the specs side. Would you rather own the Macbook that is going to last you for 5+ years (depending on what you deem an acceptable performance, or do you want a PC laptop that is going to disintegrate (hyperbole I know) in about 2 years. Both are going to be the same. But when you get to the EOL of either product, that Macbook, no matter what you think otherwise, is going to still hold value while the PC laptop wont.
Build quality-wise....PCs don't even stand a chance. If there is one thing Apple does right, they make very well made laptops.
I might be in the minority here, but get what you feel like getting. I personally am part of the few who likes both Mac and PCs. They both have their ups and downs. But if I were you, I'd look at more than just "specs, specs, specs". If you want something with really good specs, forgoe the laptop and build a desktop. If you want something portable and reliable, get the Apple laptop. That's just my 2cents.
