I think it's worth every penny to have this and to have OS X optimized to this set of hardware. Works beautifully. Start putting OS X on just any machine/PC and you start running into problems. I tried to run a Hackintosh many times but there was always something broken: sound, wifi, etc. Just not worth it to me. Fortunately some others have been pretty lucky around here with their Hackinstosh. Kudos.
If Apple would concentrate on software instead of hardware, they would probably get more software developers to talk to them and get more games/apps that would be on par with PC games, imo.

Once I stuck with a GPA of Froyo, things got more stable for me.
My android phone is rooted, and I've never had a problem with it. I run custom ROM's on my phone, and I like the fact that I can control the amount of bloatware that I want on my phone.

Different tastes for different folks. I love being able to customize a phone. I love tinkering with my phone until it's just the way I want it. Some people would rather have the phone ran at stock and leave it like that.
