My High school does not have a single windows computer in the entire building. In face every student has their very own MacBook or MacBook pro for their own 24hour use all year long. Also the computer class has iPod touches for programming use.

Well Macs are much more reliable just as Liam Quade said, How? Because Macbook Air's have Solid State Technology making them much better then a netbook... Meaning that they are more likely to outlive its usefulness than to die on students, staff, etc. Also Macs Have a better display meaning you don't see as much pixels, which is better (All I mean is that there too small to see as easily). If you can see the Pixels, like on a standard screen it can be annoying (Especially when having to read PDFs, eBooks, etc.). Macbook Pro's are also epic when it comes to having to do a ton of work (Photo Editing Class is an example). iMacs or Mac Minis our good for the destops (Example: iMacs for the staff, Mac Minis for the student accessible Macs) But a Mac Mini will have to use at least a 1024p screen so people wont be bothered as easily by pixels.

Not mine, my High School uses Dell PC's. I know most New York City schools use PC's, and I know that Macs are a bit more expensive to the schools in wholesale than the Macs.
I think it's because of the price, and not because of preference.
