The climate is far better too with four actual seasons, none of which are extreme and about equally divided so when you're getting tired of one the next is coming. The schools are excellent in Apex-Cary as well as Chapel Hill-Carrboro, the IT jobs are obviously plentiful and the airport is one of the best for business travelers in my opinion as it has excellent service to varying airports minus the big city airport headaches.

How oppressive and humidity wise are the Raleigh summers

I cant answer on "how oppressive Raleigh is" but I don't think Raleigh summers are that humid. I traveled to Raleigh for 3 months on business during the summer and I never felt like its too humid.
