I take issue with the stability part.

Everywhere else I agree.

But maybe its because I am on a portable, I use it 12 hours or more per 
day, and I use it in several different network environments without 
shutting down and doing nothing more than putting it to sleep.

That's the hook for me.

But I find myself using my Powerbook at home a lot now.  I took the 
keyboard/monitor/mouse off the sun and stuck it in the pile with the 
other headless boxen.  With a couple of well placed wireless access 
points, I roam around the house and use it wherever I choose to.  I use 
it at the office to maintain my Sun & Linux farm.  I use it at home to 
maintain my Sun & Linux & BSD farm. :)  For a UNIX sysadmin, this thing 
is a godsend.
