I've waited for over a year then replace my failing and old MacBook Pro. And, unlike many people here, I like the new 15 ". Still, when I spec'ed a new XPS, it was $1200 cheaper than the MacBook Pro I would buy. The only difference seems to be that the Dell comes with only 2 gigs of video ram while the MBP I would buy will have 4 gigs. So, is the Apple OS the only reason to stick with Apple? Or, am I missing something?
