Apple "hardware" doesn't exist - they wisely moved to commodity hardware a couple of years ago using Intel, NVidia, etc. That same HW mix can be found in many of the high end window based PC's.

AFAIK you can't just decide to make an Apple computer yourself, out of whatever components you feel like.

Microsoft have in the past set out some narrow hardware standards themselves, such as for TabletPC, but that was just to define an optional membership in a category of PC, not something without which it would not work at all.

In any case, typically, it's the Mac OS that is cited as the unique attraction IMO.
