Anyway, people who suck with computers in general are screwed no matter which they choose, Mac or PC. The opposite of that is true, that a competent user can probably get work done with either.

I'm currently a mac owner, and will be for some time because I've gotten very comfortable with the operating system, but my next computer will be a PC which will probably run some version of Ubuntu. As for most schools using PCs over macs, I've found the opposite to be true, but I'm a grad computer science student, and most of my work is done in a unix environment. Since OSX is built on a unix core, unix tools can be accessed natively using X11. My powerbook, processing wise, runs circles around any laptop doing compilation/rendering with the exception of a macbook pro. The big reason for this is because the operating system is very tailored for the hardware it uses. Up until recently (with the release of Ubuntu), if you wanted a solid development machine with a super slick UI, a mac was at the top of your list. But with the advent of a lot of the open operating systems, there are some great options that you don't have to pay for/pirate.
One of the things I hate about macs is the elitist reputation their owners have come to garner. Most of these people buy them because they look cool and bitch about how they are different that windows. Probably don't even know about sudo or chmod and assume that the terminal is a windows thing...
