I have no statistical data to support this hypothesis, but, from my experiences of higher education, it seems that a significantly higher number of university researchers use Macs than people working in non-academic settings.  Clearly I need to back this up with data of some kind, but for the time being I offer this term:

Macademic, n.  A university researcher whose hatred of Microsoft leads them to spurn standard PCs in favour of the more expensive but rather more beautiful Macintosh computers produced by Apple Inc.
