    Just saw this on Digg and got a chuckle out of it... It's sorta sad that it's true, considering the other laptops are "optimized" for Vista, but it does say something about Apple's high end computers, that's for sure. This just adds to the lengthy list of why a Mac over a Windows laptop eh? :rolleyes:

    :)

    That. And It's pretty too!

    (In fairness the Gateway E-265M ain't that ugly, it's just no MBP is it?)

    What a brilliant category

    Fastest-looking: Acer Ferrari 5005WLMi

    Personally i think the thin sleek MBP looks faster (and actually is)

    My slightly out-of-date T7600G Dell XPS M1710 eats the MBP's lunch. So does my X7900 M1730 in a much bigger way. The Sager NP5791 will also for $500 less. So does my Lenovo I believe the last time I checked. The list goes on and on.

    I wonder what they review...?

    Wow. Just wow.

    Shows that even those who think they know how to make Vista run faster, don't. :rolleyes:

    Go figure. ;)

    Haha!!! You just made my day even if it's only 2:30 AM.:D

    "but the MacBook's score is far more impressive simply because Apple couldn't care less whether you run Windows."

    cool.
    i was suprised they said/fact : "Battery life was disappointing: Apple pegs it at 5.7 hours on one charge, but in our tests we got less than 2 hours, 45 minutes" - it was however with the best option 4 gb ram in maybe heavy testing..In the other hand the dell xpsm 1730 has only 1.5 half hour testing it to the max.And 1 of the lowest score on the benchmark test like Sony VGN-TXN15P / B(1.2-GHz Core Solo - lol)
    had the best battery time...very strange test..you can't really compare 1,2 ghz with a workhorse dual core 2.4 regarding batt test..it's a sea between them..:confused:

    Wow, I've only had my 17" MBP for 6 weeks and it seems that the longer I have it the more I love it.

    Not only just in use but in reviews like this that I keep seeing. And it recently won the "Drop Dead Gorgeous Award" from T3 magazine. The good news just keeps coming!

    Over 100fps in Doom 3 and Far Cry sounds pretty tempting to get into some portable LAN gaming with my friends. I haven't installed Windows on it yet but I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullet now.

    I feel proud to be a MBP owner! :D

    I'm not surprised really. The Macbook Pro is a great machine. I love mine. ;)

    The article would have be a lot funnier if Microsoft actually sold computer systems. Vista is just an OS, and a Macbook Pro is just computer hardware packed into a beautiful design. Macbook Pro or Dell, they still are Intel CPUs, Toshiba HDs, Nvidia video cards, and so forth. ;)

    I bet the fastest system that runs OS X isn't a Mac (but then again, Apple does have some beefy desktops).
