So... I decided to buy a 13" MacBook Pro today. I hate to admit it but I really like how it's built. With moderate internet usage and fiddling of the settings I was able to muster about 4.5 hours of battery life, and this multi-touch scrolling is convenient. There's the chance that I'll still even end up installing Windows on here, but I'm not entirely sure.

Meh, it works out for me. I'm either going to throw parallels on it or install Vista/7. As an even more unpopular choice, I own an 80GB Zune and like it. I'm every OS fanboy's nightmare, haha.
BoT: The 10" computers have way too small of screens, and I'm comfortable with the battery life; I managed to squeeze out about 4.5 hours on an 80% charge last night. As far as cost, my dad said he'd chip in for up to $600 and I gave him the free iPod in the deal, so it worked out. Honestly I got it mainly for how it's built as a laptop, not for OSX; hence my eventual installation of Windows one way or another.
Might I mention a program called CrossOver and CrossOver Games to look into Vel.....I had CS Source and Gmod running on it very well if there's anything lightweight you wanted to run under OSX and not have to boot into windows.
Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.
LMAO@ all of the dumbshits who waited outside in the cold for the iPhone 3G ... what a pile ofs**t that one was! It's all about the 3GS, B*TCHES!!
That's the thing with Apple, they want to make you feel cool and hip when you have their latest and greatest, but in 3 months (when they come out with something else to replace it), they treat you like some aging wannabe loser. F**k that.
Well for me it was really between getting this, a Dell Studio, or a ThinkPad. The Dells I was looking at would rattle when I shook them around a bit, and the ThinkPads just didn't feel right to me. I figured I'd bite the bullet and try out the MacBook and if I ended up hating it, return it before the grace period was up.
