Better to share it in public. Besides, I'm only one side of the discussion. There are arguments for going with Windows too, I'm just not sure what they are.
Hopefully someone will chime in with the counter points.
Did I mention that I was biased?
I talk windows but while shopping I keep ending up in apple world. I guess I want someone to talk me out of it. My wife tells me " just use my hp laptop!" . But I would not be happy, and since this is my BD month I don't want to settle. The trouble is I'm not sure the MBP will integrate with my work since i'm in a window work place. I hope the VMware will address that.
Well, whatever you decide, good luck; and let us know how it turns out.
And Happy Birthday.
i'm a windows user of 20+ years and a mac user of 5 years.
i use both proffessionally. each a desktop model. on that bases, both operate more or less as good as the next. why do i have both tho? well, no specific reason, i just do :P
Proffessionally, coming from a windows background, i still preffer the windows os. it's conveluted, clunky, finiky, but hey, i know it in my sleep and as fluently as i breath. that kinda familiarity isnt easily dropped. as for my mac? it's beautiful. really beautiful. super efficient, smooth, fantastic ui's and user experiences, and rock solid. but at the end of the day, given a choice, i'd still plump for a pc. and my ipad and iphone link-ups? they both operate exactly the same and equally good on either my mac or pc.
work aside, on a personal view, i no longer use a computer. my ipad does it all for me. with flying colours. but, if i were to buy a laptop, i'd probably buy an all singing all dancing MBP, purely because they're on another planet from any competition in terms of hardware. i'd also probably opt to install windows on it.

There are some very nice windows laptops. If it is important to integrate with work, you will be better off with one if those. Just don't buy a low-end run of the mill wintel laptop. Apple is not the only company that makes good laptops.

In addition in really need to review my integration needs online, I don't want to spend all my time searching for work arounds. For example I still need dial up for PPP on some legacy equipment I work on. Funny we use to call it old discontinued; now we call it Legacy. So I'm in reflection mode because going cutting edge and changing OS is a big deal.
