    I recently bought MBP 2.53 even though I had perfectly working 2 year old Asus with C2D 2.2 Ghz ;ATI HD2600. Reason for purchase? Because MBP looks SO freakin awesome. It is just pure awesomeness. Yes, that was primarily reason for purchase. I also understand that has to be the dumbest reason ever to buy MBP.

    What you guys think about this? Also, what are the craziest reason you/friends possibly bought it. Anyone bought it just because of looks?
    :apple::apple:


    PS Well HP Envy looks pretty good too but at time of my purchase it was more expensive than MBP

    While I love the looks for the MBP, and it probably was one small factor. I upgraded from my last MBP because of performance. both in GPU and CPU.

    Regardless of what apple may do with the next update, I'll be keeping my laptop for 3+ years. Even if they come out with an even better looking one :)

    I'm poor and cannot afford dropping 2.5k every two years - at least not anymore. ;)

    Congrats on the new computer, you not only got an awesome computer but a great OS as well.

    Plenty of people buy the MBP (or any other Apple) because of its looks. Whether it's "stupid" or not is a personal taste issue.
