PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

busy mobile people need rock solid rigs

Because Apple, and ONLY Apple, makes good hardware. Yeah, no one else does. Ever.
I'm sure Apple make good stuff but so does other vendors.

that's why when you go to a linux or other nerd conference you see macbooks everywhere

If by everywhere you mean "some people use macbooks" then yes.

apple has been making the best for years.

A lot of "nerds" would say the same about IBM thinkpads. In fact, I think thinkpads are probably more common than macbooks in the circles you are referring to.
