I agree.

I have CentOS 5.4, Fedora 12, Debian stable and MacOS 10.6 on this
MacBook Pro (2008).

I use Fedora when I need flexibility (like in the train or plane), and
CentOS when I'm settled down somewhere and want a powerful computer
for (java) development.
Both share an LVM logical volume with all non distro stuff (like
checked out code, maven repository, media files, etc.)

You pay a bit more for the Apple hype, but they are excellent computers IMHO.
