I am just wondering why people are satisfied with their macs, what great features they have, the design, and much more. I have nothing against Apple computers so this question is just a "why not ask question". Also what's different with Apple computers from any other manufacturer. Feel free to put minor or major flaws too.

I'd say 95% satisfied. I like the fact that I haven't had to call for support and that I can switch from OS X to Windows and that there haven't been any hardware issues after 3 years of pretty heavy usage... The only thing I didn't like was a small heat issue which was fixed with smcFanControl.

Pretty much you can only be satisfied with a mac if you like oversimplicity, poor gaming, limited programming, and beauty-over-brains mindset. Our school has eMacs and they are the worst. The teachers hate them, and any student that actually wants to complete an assingment hates them.

I am very satisfied with my iMac. I mainly use Macs for production work, and I need a computer that is dependable. I have had issues with Windows in production work before, and when doing live video, I can't take the chance.
I also like the options that Apple gives me. It is not anywhere near as customizable as Windows or Linux, but the options that they give me, I use. I almost never touch most of the settings in Windows.
I have had some problems with Macs too. On my first Mac (PowerMac G4 MDD 1.25 GHz), I had a plethora of Flash issues. My Mac crashed (kernel panic) nearly twice a week, when overusing Adobe's Flash. On my two year old iMac, I've had only one major issue which was when I was making a video go to full screen (on YouTube).
With the few issues that I've had with Macs, and the great uptime that I've experienced, I am a proud Mac owner, and will continue to be one. When another product comes out that I think is better, I will buy it. So if you think that I'm just another fanboy, I'm just trying to get the most that I can out of my technology.

I love my Macs I have a 2009 24" iMac, the only downside with it is the obvious hard to get to inside components. It is my primary machine, I use it for all my productivity and other miscellaneous things. My MacBook which is a 2007 I believe is still a champ after having it for so long. I can bootcamp and/or VMWare when I have to use Windows for something. Will all the software out there I don't have that many needs besides staying current with what Windows is. I can open a ton of stuff on my iMac and it keeps on going every day. The biggest problem that Mac has and it is only partial Apple's fault is that flash sucks on Mac.
