BTW, AFAIK not every Linux distro allows you to hard link directories. This is possible on OS X.

i am a pc user but have been developing a lot on a mac.
i think both platforms are equal but i won't support apple as long as they keep it such a hassle to develop stuff for their platforms.
all the certificates, wait and shazz needed to get an app up on app store is almost not worth it.
Normal user concerns? Well, in Linux's case there's gaming (shocker!) ;o Windows windows winows. Developers developers developers!

To answer your question: Because it's a brand name and because they can.
I would like to add to your search for a computer for college by saying...PC's and Mac's each excel at certain things. I have both. However, I use the Mac primarily for video/audio editing (and it's my back-up computer when I'm doing heavy processing on the PC) and I use the PC for (almost) everything else. My main reasoning for this is because I grew up on a PC and I'm used to it. There's nothing wrong with either of them.
Although I WILL say, if you get a Mac - - you NEED to put an antivirus on it. Don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise, they are wrong (I have explanations for why they are wrong, but this is not the place to go into it - if you're curious, PM me).
