Mac advice

 From what I understand, one or two of you may have a Mac. 🙂

Recently, I had a problem where I urgently needed to get my wife to be 
able to use her (very old) PC, the network port had simply disappeared 
(probably due to humidity), so I took my son's old Core i5 mobo/CPU to 
replace her ancient Core i3 mobo/CPU, and set it up in the living room.

Considering how much work she already does on her iPhone and iPad, I 
thought that getting her some sort of Mac might make sense. She'd only 
be using it to write court sentences (that's what she does for a living: 
sending people to prison and fining them), and maybe access some documents.

The biggest issue really is the network in her office. There is an 
Ethernet cable running from the "network hub" (the living room) to the 
other side of the house, where her office is, but it seems that the 
signal gets degraded, or perhaps the cable just broke. That's something 
I need to solve anyway.

So, is it worth getting a Mac? Would it offer a good integration in 
Apple's ecosystem?
