What makes you choose Mac ?

So I've recently switched to Mac from Windows and love it so far. I'm not using new hardware, I got a 2010 MacBook Pro 13 inch handed down to me and it's just fantastic for the stuff I do with a computer.

But I was wondering, what is it that makes YOU choose a Mac as your computer of choice ?

For me there are many benefits:

  • Optimised OS, as both the OS and hardware are made by the same company.
  • Eco-system, as I own an iPhone and iPad also, they all sync up well and having iMessage and FaceTime available on my Mac is awesome.
  • Simple to use, the whole 'it just works' statement is definitely true of a Mac and Apple products in general. Just take it out of the box and it works as it should.
  • No crapware, most Windows machines come with loads of crapware added on by the OEM, slowing down performance and just being down right annoying, a Mac has none of that as it's made by the same company who made it's OS.
Those are only a few of my reasons that I can think of, but what are yours ?
