I have been in the computer industry for well over 20 years and I have worked with Macs, PC's and even main frames.
The big difference to me between a Mac (which I have) and a PC (which I prefer) is the cost and software availability.
My home PC never crashes and is probably around 7 or 8 years old (Runs XP Pro).
My PC Laptop for work also never crashes, but it is only 6 months old (Runs Windows 7 Pro).
My Mac is in storage, as I only used it to write code for my Mac clients and they have not required anything in a while.
Take good care of your machine and it will last a long time.
And people clean the dust out of them, you will notice an improvement, including how much quieter they can be (both Mac's and PC's).
Mac and PC people really need to stop hating each other.
