I'm still saving for my 1st mac (hackintosh aside!); the 17-in MBP, and have been looking for ages now, since a few financial set-backs have delayed it throughout the last couple of years. I was in PC world yesterday getting a SATA cable and noticed they have a new mac section so went for a quick browse. I've noticed that macs always look blatantly nicer in real life! Anyone else noticed this? I've looked at all the apple pages a million and one times, and sure, they look great, but it's always a surprise how great when you see them for real! On the other hand, if you look at Alienware, or Dell on the internet, they kinda look the same-ish in real life, and there's no added "wow" when you see them for real. Maybe it's the aluminium, but the White MB looks nicer too! Maybe you can actually sense the "reality distortion field" up close. I don't know what it is! Anyone else thought this, or does everyone sit in front of their macs daily, so just figures other things look fugly?!?
