I'm considering going out and getting a macbook pro now that they've been updated, and taking advantage of the free iPod offer. But, I'm concerned that it won't really represent a huge improvement over what I have right now. I have a pretty serious PC laptop with a year of warranty remaining (it was bought in summer '05, so it's two years old.) It's got a 1.86GHz Pentium M, a gig of RAM, 128mb of vram on an ATI FireGL V5000, and a 100gb hard drive. I'd be interested in getting the 2.2GHz base macbook pro, stock. Is it worth a $2000 investment? I also don't own mac editions of anything, but could always buy vista and run it off boot camp to use software I already have. I don't think I'd really be happy with a macbook, as the portability is interesting to me but I don't think I could go down to a 13.3" lower res display (as it is, the MBP display is lower res than the one I have.) To do this, I would officially take a loan because my grant would be paying for it. That's not a big deal, I just want to make sure that if I do this I'll be seeing an improvement. I don't really have an attachment to OSX, so I don't consider that a feature so much. Should I spring for it?
