I have a shiny new tax return burning a hole in my wallet and a dying old laptop. The problem is that I don't know a god damn thing about computers so I need to crowdsource this decision! All of my friends are apple snobs and are telling me to get a macbook - not for any valid reason other than that they are "cool."

So, smart and wonderful groupthinkers, tell me which laptop I should buy! Macbook or a PC? I'm fairly certain I won't be needing to do very many fancy things on it. It will just be a basic laptop for me. No gaming, etc. Things that are important to me: high quality, long lasting, not a stupid piece of shit (looking at you, my current Dell)
