Ok i am currently torn between these 2 machines, and have no idea what to get. The HP Elitebook I am looking at costs 2000$ and the MBP also costs the same with education pricing. The Elitebook has a much better display and better build quality. But on the other hand the MBP is much less bulkier and has the ThunderBolt Port. I have no idea what I should go for. The biggest factor that drives me away from the MBP is OSX, i dont know if i will like it or not. I have been a Windows user for my whole life and buying a Mac only to run windows on it for the majority of the time just seems foolish. And i am a CS major and like to dual boot Linux with Windows, pretty sure i cant triple boot Linux+OSX+Windows, though i could use VMs. Mac just seems to much of a hassle for no reason for me, am i wrong?? Should i just go ahead with the Mac.
