    Default Looking for a new laptop - anyone got a MBP unibody?

    Hey folks,

    well ive began thinking about treating myself to a brand spanking new laptop. Not a great time so close to xmas i know but still you only live once right! at the min i own a dell inspiron 630m which is about 4 1/2 years old now. Its been a great little machine and had a high spec for a cheap price at the time. However one thing always bugged me about how ugly i think it looks. Now i know looks arent everything but i've always regretted not buying something i LOVE to use and look at you know? something slim but sexy too if that makes sense haha. after owning (and loving) my iphone i had a look at the MBP unibodies. Ive read reviews on the web etc but wanted to see what users on the board thought of them? i can get a MBP for £773 with my uni discount which is the standard 13inch build.

    I havent used OS X extensively but when i have it always seems to work pretty god damn smooth and effortless. Ive also seen the HP envy and a sony vaio which i like but were £400 and £1000 more expensive!! so when compared to those the MBP seems quite cheap. but before anyone starts i do realise if i go more for the spec then i could get a better spec laptop than the MBP for a cheaper price. i just want some opinions on the MBP and similar range laptops cos i think im going to spend that bit extra for a machine i love

    I have a number of machines. The machine I now consider a 'reference' laptop is the 13" MacBook Pro. Good battery life, good spec, multiple OS, solid, not too heavy.

    MBP 13" is highly recommended by me!

    I also have a 13" MBP, primarily purchased for a combination of reasons with the primary being battery life and the screen along with just wanting to get away from the norm and buy a Mac for once.

    I use it primarily to carry along to watch CBT's and browse the Internet and remote access my home for when I'm studying abroad. Works great for heading to a coffee shop for a few hours.
