When my old Thinkpad T needed to retire, I looked into the Vaio TX series, at the time the best 11" ultra-portable money could buy with its mere 2.9 pounds. That was months before the MacBook Air and other similar ultra-portables arrived to the market. Unfortunately the small size didn't cut it for me and had to look elsewhere to replace the Thinkpad until I finally decided to get a MacBook Pro. In spite of the fact that I'm a Windows user, I did it with the purpose of checking out the then new Leopard OS X release.
Today the MB Pro remains as my primary laptop
. Although I have my gripes about OS X, I have remained more or less content about the hardware which has proved to be of top quality construction, all while running Windows Vista
. You have probably heard the stories of how the MB Pro makes for a great Windows laptop anyway, and in my case that has hold true - in fact, I haven't touched Leopard in months.
And now with the well publicized release of the new MacBooks, I started looking into the possibility of getting a new laptop, but instead of the Pro I was checking the upgraded MacBook which is cheaper, has got many of the Pro's biggest selling points like the aluminum body, powerful specs, but sports a smaller 13.3-inch screen that is also LED illuminated. Sounds good so far? Until I saw this...
