In my opinion, I think if you were to compare the Dell XPS line, perhaps things might even out a bit more. Still, to each his own. Disclaimer: If I had the money, I might also get a MacBook Pro, and still may. Someday (see below).
As for me, I’m waiting for what gifts the Real Steve Jobs has for his
serfs customers this morning. I’m looking for a sub-four pound laptop that is capable enough to do real work (e.g., transcoding video, working with databases with hundreds of
thousands of records, etc.). Perhaps, today is the day (crosses fingers, toes, and assorted other body parts)?
