with few exceptions, apple laptops have always been better put together
than their pc counterparts. the power management features have been
lightyears ahead of pc power management. that kind of uptime isn't
surprising to me at all. particularly with their bsd os core.
people have gotten used to things with pc's and windows they never
should have. crashing. poorly designed hardware. viruses. spyware.
if you really stop and think about it - how it's all evolved over the
past 10 years or so - it's insane.
