no doubt, been using mac for the last 10 years, started with the ibook 11in.
I gave my girlfriend my 6 year old imac, and it still works great, they last forever. Another good thing is their resale value, iphones and macs have phenomenon resale value, I bought a macbook air for 1300, sold it for 1100 after a year to get the retina macbook
that said, windows 8 looks great, and I wouldn't mind having one of these touchscreen laptop/tablet convertibles as my next computer
