That is what we are after here.
It wouldn't be fair comparing your your 2003 model laptop to a 2009 13" MacBook Pro base model. Let me get this clear - it is not fair 'for your laptop' simply because it does not have the same specs. Older laptops are chunkier and heavier. It doesn't have a comparably fast processor and it doesn't have the same type of RAM. The hard disk space is (from what I gather from Amazon) is a measly 40GB. The base 13" MacBook Pro has 160GB. The spec is not even good enough to compare to any current HP, Acer or Sony laptop 15" laptop.
And the most important thing -- it doesn't matter how good it is if it is no longer in production and you can't buy one today.
Just to add on. The second most prominent complain is about Apple's marketing strategy for their products, which unfortunately does deal with pricing amongst other things. Which provides lots for fan boys to then justify why Mac and accessories prices are higher.
Yes, I do agree. They look better. If I wanted an LV bag, I would get one too. But just make sure the LV bag is working fine, not for example, leaking coins out of compartments.
Unfortunately, I find the die-hard fan boys still unable to admit that Mac is not perfect, that it does bomb. I mean, I don't have a problem admitting that Windows 3.1 is a copy of Mac interface. Calling a Window's Thrash Can a Recycle Bin doesn't quite make it original. Linux users complain about Wintel all the time; do you see us trying to be fan-boys justifying why Windows is better than Linux? Or vice versa? No, because Linux users will be Linux users and Windows users will be Windows users. Sun is still trying to kill Microsoft, but you don't see die-hard fan boys out there like err.. Mr Electric Blue, do you?
Get the Mac.
You'll never regret it.
For one, the performance is better than ME, XP, VISTA, Win7.
Shutting down is only 3-5 secs (I kid you not) !
No viruses(at least not in the wild yet)
Interface is much easier to use.
Doesn't crash as often as MS products
If you still wanna run Windows on your Mac, use Parallels, Virtual PC or some other virtualisation software
The Ang Moh from Hell
Professional Photography - many are called, few are chosen!
Why I'll never buy a Mac :
1) Better specs from other brands at lower prices
2) Too many people have it
3) Don't like the Mac interface, don't see the point of running Windows on one either
If steve jobs can make the apple crowd go wild when announcing 'flush headphone jack' on an iphone, he probably can make them pay any price for anything.
Get the Mac.
You'll never regret it.
For one, the taste is better than KXC, BuggerKing, CarlsSenior, Poppies.
Shutting down is only 3-5 big macs a day (I kid you not) !
No viruses or bacteria (at least not in the wild yet)
Interface is much easier to digest.
Doesn't crash your body as often as KXC products
If you still wanna run on the track after your Mac, use stimulants, 3rd life or some other virtualization software.
If you think all that was rubbish, you're right. I think they call it paraphrasing.
My Win 7 64-bit machine runs smoothly without much problems as well. It's a matter of preference which OS you like I guess. By the way, it is common that we value something more if it costs more. I'm not saying this is the reason why apple-supporters like their products so much. I'm saying this is probably a reason why so.

"get something, you'll never regret it"
if that "something" is a product in the market, you bet that person making the statement is fanboy. it's a sweeping statement that assumes that anyone else with different needs, preferences, tolerance levels will be able to accept the product like the person making the statement has.
sorry to spoil your day with the information that wildcat's day has not been spoilt. it has been made, in fact.
