    The hardware in Apple's products might seem expensive, but if you built a similar spec youself there wouldn't be much difference!

    Those may be two reasons some Mac users buy Macs, but those aren't the only reasons.

    Because they want to.
    I am not a PC! I am not a Mac! I am a Human Being! Windows was not my idea!
    Ubuntu = $0.00, Software = $0.00, Updates = $0.00, Freedom = PRICELESS!

    Almost all of the commercials made for Microsoft are done on Macs as that is what MS's ad agency uses.

    But I have seen CGI (along with audio and foley) done on Sun Micro stations (that is what was at Skywalker Ranch when I was there.)

    Also there is quite a bit of software that can only be used on Macs. Another reason why people might need to buy Apple Mac's for their job!
