Summary: I purchased my brand new 15-inch Macbook Pro four days ago for $1836 (after tax), and so far, I'm beyond impressed. The beautiful screen is a pleasure to look at - it's so sharp and flawless! The processor speed (2.53 GHz Intel Duo-Core) and the 4 GB of RAM creates a seamless computing experience with no "hiccups" whatsoever. The Airport Extreme (a/b/g/n) has given me blazing fast download speeds. I have only just begun to explore the capabilities of this machine. I am computer savvy when it comes to Windows PCs, and so far, the learning curve of the Mac Snow Leopard OS has been easy as pie. It's very intuitive. I love so many things about this computer (except for the minor 'cons' listed above) that I consider myself a Mac Guy for life. If you are a Windows person, drop some cash if you have it and get a Mac. It's way worth it. I'll eventually partition my hard drive and put a Windows OS on my Mac (usable via Boot Camp) but for now the Mac OS is my new environment.
