Longtime thinkpad user. Switching to Mac for first time. A good friend of mine is all about Mac's but he is completely obsessed with how they look over form/functionality. I swear if Mac specs started to suck he would go down with them to the end if it "looked" better than other computers. I give almost zero emphasis on "prettyness". Form factor is useful in some sense, a 3" thick laptop that is 10lbs is not easy to lug around. However I can do without the shinyness and aluminum brush finish. Poll basically is asking was prettyness one of the MAJOR factors in your decision?
