Should I go Mac (Part 2)?

My question. The operating system seems to be Unix-based - which suggests speed, reliability etc. etc. But, let's not kid ourselves. The world is Windows. The business world at least.

Probably the most interesting article I've read so far. It's a Washington Post review of the MacBook (probably the target machine for most South Africans - retails in at around R12,000 with fairly high specs).

Three worrying issues I picked up in this:
1. Doesn't burn DVD's!
2. Runs extremely hot (almost painful according to the article).
3. Has erratic WiFi connectivity.
