I might get on the Apple train when needing to replace.
Just remember that you can buy 2 (or more) comparable or even better machines for the price of 1 Apple. I have both standard PC and Apple units. Both do what I would expect. The standard PC is easily upgraded, the Apple is not. Apples tend to have better engineered hinges and latches. Generics run more standardized software in industry settings.
If it were me, the niche Apple is pretty, but the easily upgraded generic is cheaper, more versatile, and a better value.
