Hey guys.... I guess I've grown to miss the Mac recently. Originally, I was just gonna unload my laptop to pay for an older Pro. Maybe an aluminum Santa Rosa or something. I ended up talking to someone from craigslist that said he'd give me an awesome price for it if I could get Snow Leopard on it. Well, I'm typing this from 10.6.3 on my laptop now. Full video card support (QE/CI/etc), wireless is detected as Airport Extreme, I have multitouch gestures on my trackpad, etc etc. The problem is, it's still a big, thick 17" PC laptop. I'm not generally snobbish about the way computers look, but I have to admit: I was definitely looking forward to having a legit Mac to use. I have a Phenom II X4 rig, so I don't need a ton of power... my specs are as follows: -- 2.8GHz C2D T9600 -- 4GB DDR3 -- 500GB 7200RPM HDD -- 17" 1920x1200 display -- nVidia GeForce 9800M GTS So, the problem is, as we all know, Macs cost way way WAY more for comparable hardware specs. I'd be able to MAYBE trade this for a 2.2 or 2.4GHZ 15" MBP or maybe one of the new 13" Pros with the 2.26GHZ P8400. It would be nice to have all the little things-- the backlit keyboard, the lack of kernel panics when you forget to shut it down right, the fact that Apple laptops have beautiful design. Anyone want to weigh in? The nicest legit Mac I've ever owned was a 2.2GHz blackbook in 2008, so the whole Pro thing is new to me!
