In about half a year, I need to buy a new laptop for college. I have two computers, a Vista PC and a MacBook. I take the MacBook to school every day and run it in OS X but need VMWare Fusion open at all times for Microsoft Office OneNote, the greatest application for note taking ever. I tried Word 2004's notebook view and it pales in comparison. Anyway, my dilema is that in using both OS X and Windows, I find that though OS X looks better (though the constant gray theme in Leopard is kind of depressing sometimes...) I am so much more efficient, and proficient, in Windows. I also like gaming, a lot, and love being able to click on a game instead of having to reboot into Boot Camp. I don't want to be locked out of the OS X scene because it is really good and a lot of the programs I like are better in OS X - Adium and iTunes come to mind - yet I can't ditch Windows, ever, due to both software necessities and gaming. The other issue is that if I don't get a MacBook Pro, I'm getting an Alienware m15x or whatever new product they release in the coming months. The new Alienware m17 can be customized to the same specs as a top of the line MacBook Pro, along with Dual video cards for gaming, for $3200. And since the laptop would be made for Windows, the trackpad and keyboard layout is designed for the OS. Though I don't really care about the latter, my MacBook's inability to tap-to-click or right click properly is really annoying. So what do you guys think I should do? Mac or PC laptop? I know this is an Apple forum, but you guys have the judgement I'm lacking in deciding this. Oh, and another thing - 3 way iChatting is incredibly popular among my friends, and when I'm in college that would probably happen, at least in the beginning.
