Yes and no. 
It's pretty convenient to have around for school work, projects, or just simply editing pictures.
The cost is quite up there but it's really up to you. I think it's worth it if you travel a lot.
I could get a decent high performance/gaming computer rig for the price of a Macbook.

I like the build construction, does everything you need it to do besides play games.

small. smart and practical for minor tasks. video editing and processing makes lower end macbook struggle. increasing in temperature and volume.

temperature/fan noise shouldn't be a major concern, there's SMC fan control for that.

low end 15" cMBP with a dedicated GPU should be fine for moderate video editing and processing. at that price you're better off going for the retina though imo.

a macbook pro retina would be a safe investment, the only thing i suggest is carrying an extra 500gb-1tb external hd because the 256 gb flash storage isn't enough memory, at least for me it isn't.

yes, but it really really sucks that you cant get them open without some expertise, while being low maintenance they also kind of lock you out of your own product as in it's still like it's apples product and you just rent it indefinitely

It depends what you mean by worth it. Different people like different features. As far as specs, you can fund cheaper laptops with just as good maybe better. Overall the MacBook is pretty good.

it depends on what you're going to use it for. But they're really lightweight

Yes. Totally worth it. I bought my MacBook back in 2008, and have never done ANY form of maintenance, including never cleaning out cookies, constantly downloading tons of shit, etc... I don't have pop ups, don't have viruses, and that thing is still going strong. It is getting a little slower, so I think I need to do some typical maintenance (finally!), but I have seen friends of mine with all kinds of great PCs  go through them already within the time that I have had mine. It's a good investment IMO.

At this stage in the game I'd drop $1500 on a custom laptop. After checking out a couple, it's no brainer and worth the price. The virus shit is for idiots clicking on ads and are too dumb to get a virus protection. 

Don't badmind me.

I'm currently at University doing an English Literature degree, and I wanted something with a nice looking user interface, something light to carry to lecture. I also enjoy PC gaming (not to extremes such as Battlefield which requires a pretty high spec PC to run on HD) so I upgraded the RAM and processor, and the stuff I play runs comfortably. Really impressed with this laptop, definitely recommend it.

Currently saving up for mine. Macs are so sexy. Great for editing photography if that's your thing.
