i bought MBP recently. As per my experience its good for a developer or designer but not for games. Yea OSx gives really awesome environment to work :)
i was playing bf3 with freshface just a little bit ago. He has a mac. He uses bootcamp to play games ;D

it’s more the graphics card you want to be worried about with a MBP , you’ll be able to get a better one on a PC but it depends really how much you game and whether you have to have the quality settings on ‘realistic’ whilst playing…

@RelStudios – they aren’t cheap, roughly $4-5k for top spec

I have a 15” MBP with 8Gb Ram, no qualms since I’m able to play SC2 nicely without closing my dev apps :)

But it depends on your favourite OS.

My wife has the. Sony vaio , lime green thing. Biggest issue is screen resolution. But it’s nice, that’s my product review for that.
Yeah, those series are cute, for ladies :D But they do have quite good performance :)

It’s fast, good battery life. Fires up fairly fast. However it is heavy, I think she pain $1800 for it. I think now her model is around $1300

Best laptop we ave had. We have a few, did a quick count up…we have one Sony , two hps one tosh and a dead tosh and a dean advent.
well, I think for now, I have Sony Vaio and Mac as possible winners :D I’ll see which one I choose :D

I wouldn’t choose Sony, if that is the choices you are giving yourself then go with the Mac.

I will go with Mac then :) I see that many of you use or used to have a Mac and it seems that it runs quite good :)

Though, I have one question to ask, can I install on my current laptop some OS similar to what Mac has ? I want to get used to the interface before buying the Mac :D

Just wait and make it a surprise. It’s infinitely superior.

honestly i dont read the whole thread, but i was crazy about 3 month with the same question. which i the right notebook for me. i saw, read, tested a lot, anyway… all win notebooks were kind of crap. really cheap materials and good hardware, of good materials and worse hardware. i ended up in the apple store and bought a mac book 13. used it 2 years till i bought this march a mac book pro 15…

i really don’t miss any windows stuff or hardware problems, every cent seems right invested. i am really enjoy the advantages of mac books…
