[Melbourne-pm] Getting a Mac Power Book

I know this is not a Perl question so my apologies. However I figure there
might be knowledge and opinions on the list.

I have a serious case of Mac lust and I'm thinking of sinking some money
into a Power Book (but not yet, there are rumours of new machines in June)

The questions I have is as follows:

* What can OS/X offer that Linux can't

* What is the downside of migrating to OS/X?

* Is OS/X as good as Linux for running and developing OSS software? Some of
the things that I particularly interested in are: GNU Cash (possible to
install I believe but not a supported platform); Apache, Perl and  all that
goes with it (i.e. CPAN), MYSql (I believe there is a port supported by the
vendor), svk.
