In the interest of keeping everybody occupied until the MBP refresh... The waiting game has had a strange effect on me. I'm a mac convert of about five years now, still plugging away on a G4 desktop, and have been anxiously anticipating the jump to Intel with the next iteration of Macbook Pros, which I'll be using as a desktop replacement. Yet all the waiting has had me looking harder and harder at those pesky ThinkPads, which I see come up here from time to time. The dealbreaker in the past would always be Windows - XP and Vista were always enough to keep me swallowing the Apple premium. But Windows 7 has me thinking twice. It looks like a solid little OS. Now some of the ThinkPads look mighty comparable to the MPBs. My uses are writing, music and perhaps some video editing. Am I thinking myself into a world of regret here? Lenovo is having a mighty attractive notebook sale right until the day of Apple's media event, of course.
