    If your primarly using Windows XP(or plan on Windows Vista or Linux) and have little intrested in OSX; there are better solutions then the overpriced MBP.

    You can also run OSX on a windows based notebook. But lets not get off topic.

    Yes you can, but its considerably harder than getting XP to run on a Macbook am I right?

    Wonder when the Macbooks will get Intel's Merom processors and it would be quite interesting to see em with AMDs processors as well.

    Yeah, but I have a friend running it fine. He thinks it's easy.

    Mac with an AMD would be odd =X

    Just thinking about it makes you think it's not going to happen..

    Apple specs for the MacBook Pro say it's a 60Wh Lithium Polymer battery. I'd say 3:15 hours is decent depending on how bright half brightness actually is since the screen can go up to 300nits. The Acer 8204 gets about the same battery life even with a huge ~90Wh battery and the screen's max brightness is only 185nits (with the Samsung panel).

    crazyguy, would it be possible to take a pic of the MacBook Pro on a desk with an AA battery as a height comparison?

    I believe the work around is to hold down the control button... or an external mouse.

    single button touchpad is a major bummer for a notebook.

    I would like to know why is it good to have a non-glare type lcd on the MacBook? I thought glare type is an advantage.
