Default Would a Mac be the right choice for me?


I've never been too much into laptops because I've always felt that they were inferior to desktop computers. But now that the technology is so big, laptops can be just as good and sometimes even better than a desktop computer. So now I have finally decided to get a laptop.

So here's what I'm wondering: I could buy a laptop and then load it with FreeBSD, but for the moment I'm not interested in doing that because I'm not a very experienced FreeBSD user so I know that I would have some hard time trying to configure wireless network with FreeBSD. That's why I want to go with either Windows (I know, I know, shame on me) or a mac laptop. I've never used mac before but I have heard great things about it. I would be mostly be using it for work (using Putty to login to other servers) and programming a little here an there. So I just would like to know if its really worth it for me to spend the extra money with Mac rather then buying a cheaper windows laptop?
