To add one objective point to Phil's comments: as some of my Windows-using colleagues have recently experienced, moving from 32-bit Windows to 64-bit Windows is not painless. All Mac OS X systems (like most Linux and Unix systems out there) are fully 64-bit, and all Mac hardware is 64-bit. That allows you to use all of that expensive RAM you installed in your system within Stata and other memory-hungry apps.

And lines like these make me smile:
