Why you'd buy a Mac to run Linux today

1) it is BY FAR the highest performing ARM laptop or desktop available

2) it is easily the highest performing laptop or desktop of any type available that is either fanless or has a fan that almost never runs

That's today. If tomorrow competitive ARM alternatives (or more power efficient while still as high performing) x86 alternatives come to market, there would be less interest in this Linux porting project.
