The folks over at macworld.com have written a detailed description about the old and new rules you should consider when purchasing a Mac.
One of the main themes throughout the article is that the new Intel Macs have really changed the way we should think about Apple Computers. I agree completely with the article.

The Intel Chips in Apple computers provides best of both worlds for users and really makes it difficult to justify NOT buying a Mac.
I believe the continual increase in market share that Apple has seen since moving to x86 processors also supports this claim.
