    If you couldn't have a MBP what would be your next choice? Mine would be either an iMac refurb 24" or one of those MacBooks off of eBay that were made in 2008 and look just like MBPS :D

    What about you?

    OP, could you be more specific on what you mean by "Couldn't have a MBP"? I don't know how to answer your question, not really understanding you. :)

    I guess it would have been an Air, if I could have a desktop.
    If not I guess I'd get a Vaio or Latitude. XPS or Pavilions would be out of the question at least, plastic fantastic isn't to my linking. It doesn't help that one of my best friends has a Pavilion with two blown up chargers, broken hinges and plastic covers that just are falling off.

    A Mac Pro and I would probably use my iPhone more on the go.

    I played with an HP Envy at Fry's the other day. If I was forced to choose a PC, I would pick that one.

    I'd have to get a Blackbook. Those things are still cool looking to me.

    12-Core Mac Pro with 64GB of RAM and ATI 5870 Graphics. That was a no-brainer. Oh, you can add one of those new 27" Cinema Displays to that too.

    Would somebody please explain to me why some of these PC notebooks have the trackpad way off to the left side? There is absolutely no way I could live with that. I've got to have my trackpad centered like on my Mac.
