First of all, you may have noticed that this is my first forum post so hello. Secondly and more importantly, I am looking for advice and preferably not a scripted response but a more closer mac user response so here's my story. At the moment, I am on a Sony Vaio F11 laptop running Windows 7 64 bit. When I was choosing the laptop, I had the choice of a mac and this laptop and so you do the maths and you figure out I bought this. They were both of similar price and I was kinda feeling well, it looks that I get more features by going for the Vaio and it was actually cheaper. However, recently a family member of mine was looking for a laptop and I was kinda thinking well, I have the money and they are my close family so I decided that providing that they wanted to, I would sell the laptop to them for a very reasonable price and search for a new laptop. Regardless, the more I see a macbook pro out in the open, the more I feel that, sure I may have a Blu-Ray driver and such, but I also have a battery life of 2 hours and I don't have that pristine feel of a macbook pro. But being from a Windows based background all my life, I am, at the moment, just trying to get a general jist from users themselves of what makes mac so special. I will refrain from saying, should I pick a macbook pro or stay with this laptop, because that's like going on the official PlayStation forums and asking, is the PS3 any good? What I really want to know is, why? I am sure there are some of you out there who made the jump from PC to Mac so I'm really trying to find out how you feel now, after that jump? What is it that you enjoy most about the mac that you didn't enjoy about the PC? Also, is there anything you miss from a PC that you don't really get with a Mac? As you can see, I am trying to make a fully informed decision and I am hoping for some detailed answers here - they would be very much appreciated. For your general info, I am looking at the 15" Macbook Pro. The one that sports the quad core i7 I believe. Again, thank you for taking the time to answer this.
