> the standard Mac laptop

There is nothing standard about a Mac laptop, both technically and in market share.

Well, I'd say 90% of the computers I've seen at the last 10 confs I've attended were Macbook Pros


Look outside the US.

At Silicon Valley technology companies? A Mac is generally the computer that you're likely to get.

Silicon Valley is a very small dot in the global scale.

It's not just Silicon Valley. In the last two companies I've worked in in the UK everyone had Macbooks.

A fairly influential one, nonetheless.

Influential in technology output? Yeah. Influential in Mac market share? Not in the slightest.

Companies around the globe don’t care one bit about which laptops SV companies are buying.
