Let us start at the beginning,
Apple makes everything, the whole widget, something goes wrong, you do not have to worry about who made what part of your computer, Apple made it all, Software and Hardware
If you want the most beautiful interface for making or doing anything on a computer, just look at Aqua.
Do not worry about not being able to exchange files with other PC users, We have made a grand attempt to be able to read what PC users have created. We can read .zip's, they can't read .sit's.
If you ever had the urge to do something creative, your make will be your aid. It can make anything movie-like. And soon, you will be able to do more with iPhoto (probably colour correction and other photoshop-esque features)
Get a Mac, you can run Windows on it if you want, and it does it better than a Wintel

Mac users are the 733t h4Xx0r5 of the internet. Although Al Gore once claimed to have invented the internet, it is in fact l33t M4x u50r5 who came up with the idea.
When not repositioning orbiting military satellites and defacing MSN.com, these leet mac users are usually found 'owning' the desktop publishing arena, cracking 4096-bit encryption in mere seconds, and listening to mp3s in iTunes or Audion.
So by purchasing an iBook, you are entering the elite ranks of M4Xx U5or5. When travelling (via first class of course) with the jet-set for free on Steve Job's private jet, you will be served only the finest Martinis/cocaine/caviar/escorts. At the airport, the is a Private lounge you will have access to simply by waving your iBook in front of a laser scanner.
Another perk of joining the leet ranks of Mac Users is a vast wordwide network of intelligensia you will have at your finger tips. For example, let's say IRS audits you, you can not only 'change' your IRS records, you can effectively have the employees who chose you for auditing fired, and even remove your social security number from their databases so you will no longer have to pay taxes.
Another perk is when you play at Lan parties. Just flash your iBook and the room will grow silent. PC users will offer you their seat and perhaps a cold beverage, and you will find that, no matter how poorly you pay Quake 3, you always seem to win every round. If a PC user should accidentally kill you in Quake, he will appologise profusely and will be banned for the evening.
That, plus the scads of hot eurasian women who seem attracted to us 'breakfast in New York, Lunch in Paris" types, and the associated wealth and success (and to some degree, low-key fame), never having to wait in line for the elite night spots and four star restaurants, having designated 'MaxX U5or' parking spots and even, if neccessary, parking in handicapped spots w/ out repercussions (aka "Job's style parking") are the basic Macintosh advantages.
That, and ease of use, and style of course.

not completely true. windows users can read .sit's. it's just much more of a bitch for a windows user to read a .sit than it is for a mac user to read a .zip.
keepin' it real.
