"My Mac never crashes".
But before I address that, take any computer that's been in use and abuse for a few years. Then put a new, out of box high priced machine in that user's hands and ask him how it compares. "doesn't crash"? "Easier to use"? "Faster?" Yup, that's what you'll hear.
But remember all the pre-OSX forums where the MacWhinies were constantly butting in with their "get a mac" reply to every question? Insisting that their macs were more intuitive, never crashed, was simple to configure?
Then comes OSX, and Apple abandons the whole mess, hardware and software, leaving its users with the choice of accepting the gospel and upgrading, or withering away unsupported into obsolescence. And the forums were loaded with Mac users saying how wonderful OSX was, and how it was such a relief to not having their machines crash all the time.
What? I thought they didn't crash before...what happened? Oh, the "never crash" was just for show.
I worked in an office with a heavy Mac population then, and what a nightmare...those 'wonderful' machines that 'never crashed' sure did a good imitation of it. Constantly locking up, refusing to print or open an application. But they had a cute smiley face icon that made it all OK to the born again mac fans.
Since then I've seen plenty of macs crash in other environments, despite the fact that they're generally almost new because the Apple junkies line up around the block every time there's a new model.
When the office closed, I had a dozen pre-OSX macs in working order, that I couldn't even give away to those mac junkies...finally I ended up taking them to the dumpcycler.
