There's no doubt that in looks its a 10 to me. In quality and feel its another 10. But like any normal non "apple crazy fanboy", I like to have more for my dollar. At around $1200 that I paid for this laptop, I'm sure for the same price, if not less, I could have gotten one with high def resolution, blu-ray perhaps, the USB 3.0 that everyone is talking about, MUCH larger hard drive, 2 more gb of RAM at least, maybe a faster 2nd gen i5 or even an i7 why not.. I love the mac pro no doubt and the touch pad is amazing, can't live without it now. But somewhere in the back of my brain, something tells me I could have had much more for the same price... Anyone agree? disagree? Did I make the right choice?
