I've plenty of friends who consider me crazy for jumping to a Mac from my current system: Dell XPS m1710 (black)| 17" Truelife WUXGA | Core 2 Duo T7600G email@example.comGhz | 2gb DDR2@667mhz sdram | 512mb 7950GTX | Philips 8xDVD+-RW | 100gb sata Hitachi Travelstar 7200rpm | 4gb Transcend SD card --> Readyboost | Dell Draft N Wireless 1500 | Dell Wireless 355 bluetooth (internal) | Dell 2407wfp 24" LCD | D/Dock | Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000 Am I just completely nuts for jumping to a 15.4" macbook pro? Does anybody know of someone who has done something similar? Basically, I originally bought my XPS for gaming and productivity. I've traditionally been a big gamer, but in general I don't really have much time to game anymore and I've probably spent 5 hours gaming within the past month due to my schedule being so busy. I've always been unhappy that my laptop isn't more portable because it's kind of a pain lugging around the XPS 17" when I want to go to say Starbucks, etc.. or use on a plane. On top of that, I really and truly hate Vista, with a passion. I have so many complaints that I don't know where to start and I've longed to switch to the Mac OSX for awhile but never worked up the nerve to actually do it. The last Apple computer I had was an Apple IIgs in the 80s. Anyway, I'm losing money by switching to a less powerful machine and I'm just paranoid that I'm going to regret it. I'm hoping to love OSX and finally be able to rid myself of needing to use Windows for productivity. I'd also like to be able to do some gaming on the computer but older games are fine with me. Ah well, it should be shipping end of this week and I'm going to give it a full test run to see if it's adequate. My friends still think I'm nuts.
