It's interesting reading some posts from people disappointed there's no MBP updates yet and in turn are going to buy a PC notebook .... for better / more up to date spec's. But, why? I can't think of a PC even with better spec's or more ports or whatever that is overall 'better' to use. Sure, maybe some are better on paper -but- do you really even notice it for 95% of the tasks most people do. If you aren't going to buy a MBP, what are you going to buy, a Latitude, Thinkpad, HP? They're nowhere near the quality of the MBP's from a day to day user experience, keyboard, screen quality, build quality, weight etc, there is no rival to the MBP in the PC world... After using Thinkpad's and Latitude's for years and now owning a number of Mac's there's no way I'd ever buy a new released PC over a MBP that hasn't been updated for 8 months, to do so would be a major downgrade, imo. Unless I'm missing something, there's no new pc notebook yet that's a reasonable alternative, not even the new T510/410's or the Latitude Z's, I'd take the current MBP hands down even though it's 8 months since an update. All this isn't considering the OS of course, add that in and it's an easy decision I'd think?
