Mac OS X

pros

Relatively lightweight, sleek design. Widescreen display. Quick and easy to upgrade the RAM and hard drive. Quite fast when running "Universal" applications, as fast as some MacBook Pro models in some situations. Gigabit Ethernet standard. Built-in iSight camera for easy video conferencing. Clever "MagSafe" connector helps protect the system from damage. Relatively inexpensive.

cons

Heavier than the replaced PowerBook G4 12" models and some competitive Windows notebooks.

Glossy display casts a glare in direct lighting.

Processor cannot be upgraded.

Linux: Ubuntu

pros

Most distributions are free (Open-source). Good for servers. Some distributions have good user support. Some distributions allow you to test before installing (LiveCD).

cons

Some distributions require some knowledge of how Linux works to get the most out of that distribution. Not many companies make programs for Linux.
