    If you want access to the best apps, then yes.

    If you want to install Windows and Linux alongside Mac OS X, then yes.

    If you want better sync between your iPhone and iPad, then yes.

    If you want a stable work machine you only need to reboot about once per quarter because the 40 year-old Darwin kernel is so solid as to be mostly impervious to malware and hijacking, then yes.

    If you want a machine whose resale value in 5 years will be 65% what you paid for it and serves as a great down payment on your next machine -- making every other Mac you ever buy substantially cheaper than any equivalent machine for initial 20% or so premium -- then yes.

    If you're a maker and care about your tools, why wouldn't you want the best tools you can afford?
