In the Mac's favor, I've traditionally handed down my computers to my spouse, who uses a Mac, so we get longer use out of it. On the other hand, I can't ever upgrade or replace parts myself, which is a downer, as I've always done that to increase my computer's lifespan.
In Linux's favor, I prefer using it for the most part. I work with LInux machines and write software intended to run on them all day, so that's easier. On the other hand, it's easy to run Linux (and Windows) in a virtual machine on a Mac; it's not easy to run OS X in a virtual machine under Linux. OS X has plenty of good software I would enjoy using. The same's true for Linux, but as I said, I can run Linux software no problem on a Mac; the opposite is not true.
The money difference isn't unimportant, but it's not as big of a deal as usually stated. I am getting a machine to last me several years, so the difference is about $400 more for a Mac. For a Linux machine, I'm torn between the T440 and an X230t. I love the tablet mode and size of the X230t, but the display is so much better on the T440.
This is the hook, the RPG at the center of this. You, members of the dominant group, will retell stories about the last of these people. (When I say you, I mean the players. The characters are members of the displaced group.) It has been easy to introduce the characters, as I can tell the stories of all six children. What I'm struggling with is how to describe game mechanics. It seems jarring for this storytelling mother to say, "Now you know of my children. To tell their stories, you will need two dice, one black and one white." That is pretty ridiculous.
What would you do? I'm thinking of introducing another narrator, a member of the dominant group in the future, who could say, "We play this game to honor these defeated heroes. We tell what could have been. To do this, we take two dice..."
