Thinkpad T60 vs. MacBook Pro.

T60 or MBP?

  1. Keep your t60, you already have a mac mini for osx.

  2. Get a MBP, forget about windows. Keep the 3gb ram though.

  3. Wait for a MBP with Santa Rosa and Leopard then do the switch for good.

    I currently have a T60 that I'm in love with. I am also very fond of the MBP. I already have a MBP sleeve and a clear speck case. I can't afford to keep both. What do you think I should do? With minimal loss ofcourse.

    How much do you need the Mac OS ?
    If it doesn't matter for you, go for the Thinkpad.

    I already have the mini for osx, I really like it. I use the mini for downloading torrents and watching movies. I'd like to have it with me on the go. That's what bought up the idea of the pro. I also love my thinkpad and it would be really tough letting go.

    This place does seem a bit anti-mac. A macbook pro sounds like the way to go if one wants to run "both" OS's

    I say wait for Santa Rosa .. as soon as that hits the market on Macs, give it a few weeks (I don't want to be a first adopter) and then go get yourself one of these babies. You can always buy Leopard once it is out .. which is expected at the latter part of the year ...

    Mac all the way ... though mind you I am not a Mac user ... not yet ;)

    Once Apple gets leopard (/w bootcamp release), and a better gaming capability 15.4" (hopefully dx10 card) I will consider getting one.

    Bootcamp is gonna be one of their laptops best selling points :) , I so want everything a mac does but I still want Vista to game with.

    Hrm. I believe I'm getting some t60's in at work, and a new C2D MBP with 3GB of ram.
    Coming from a long term Windows user, and a short term OS X user, I'd say stick with the MBP unless the t60 offers some major advantage.
    Does it get insane battery life? Is it better suited for your mobile needs?
    It really comes to how you use them and what you use them for.
    ***edit**

    whoops, thought you already had both.

    Okay, I'd say stick with the t60. It's a good unit. Unless your dying to get OS X on a laptop, you're just blowing money away. Keep the t60 for a year or so, then think about getting a MBP.

    If you don't need mac os, firewire, dvi, and the other stuff, keep your thinkpad.

    stick w/ ur t60. mbp would be a waste of money, because you'd end up 2/ 3 computers.
