Well, first things first : I bought my iMac a few months ago and it has been a wonderful experience so far. At that time I did not care about the hardware but the software. OSX is what all linuxes would like to be someday. So, months later, I received a gift from the gods : money to buy any laptop I want. This does not happen often and it is sort of lifetime opportunity. My first thought was instantaneous : PB 15" with lots of ram and HD. For me, the 17" is too big to carry around and 12" resolution screen is not enough. Now I need your oppinions. Even though money is not the issue, my boss made very clear that this machine NEEDS to last at least 3 years. Then I did a careful check about what the PC world has to offer and I came across this beauty : Asus W3V. 14.1" WXGA (1280x800), 2.13GHz, 1Gb DDR2 PC4200, 80Gb 7200rpm, ATI X600 128MB, 5.4lbs and the battery lasts around 4 hours. Price tag : around US$ 2100.00 I know without a doubt that this machine will last 3 years on my hands. As a macrumors reader, do you think PB will last 3 years after Intel transition ? So, PB or not PB ?
