Reports here indicate that it's worth the extra money IF you run your

"We don't want to be like Windows. We want to do everything better. We 
are intent on creating the greatest computers and the best computing 
experience in the world. And we are the only ones who can say that with 
a straight face." -- Greg Joswiak, Apple VP of hardware product
