This is a statement based on experience, not just fanboy jarble, and I can add to it.
I've worked in IT for a little over half a decade myself and generally when people bring in a computer for software issues, it's a PC. Roughly 85% of the time it's because they downloaded a virus, are being slowed to a crawl through spyware, or are using ancient drivers that don't play nice with newer software.
The rest is hardware and there is no real pattern between "I dropped it" to "It just stopped working." Hardware defects from Asus, HP, or Dell are rare for the workshop.
A great majority of people coming in with Macs are hardware related. One time a girl came in with a virus, and it was the first recording of this virus strain, but no viruses other than that. The Mac seems quite idiot proof when it comes to software, but the components don't hold up like their PC counterparts. I will say that the Macs airflow design is quite nice so I don't understand why when I spec them I see very high temps.
Until I see high end manufacturers putting their products in Macs, why risk it? Phones are a little different as the hardware isn't put through quite as much strain, but then again you can't boot camp phones yet (that I know of) so getting an iPhone still makes some sense.
