Evaluating a MacBook Pro?
... then you should read this extensive review by AnandTech. The author ("Anand Lal Shimpi") clearly has given his tests some thoughts.
The article also highly praises Parallels' virtualisation solution in version 2.1b3. This newer beta solves a couple of issues like the stuttering mouse cursor.
I took a look at a MacBook Pro today as well at a store, but no-one let me log in and work away. The only thing I want to say is that the caps lock light is - compared to the PowerBook's - of a very ugly bright green. It reminded me of how "PC Corel Draw Graphics Designers" never got the concept of "less saturation often is more". ;) ... Maybe the ugly green is Apple's ironic sign of "intel inside"? Guess not. And it's almost 4 in the morning here, so I don't have to make sense exactly. Have a nice weekend!

Tell me about it! I just got my new MBP and its great but that green...on both the power cable and caps/num lock keys is horrible. Well, at-least they all match!
 
One of my friends just had his entire system brought down by a CD burning error. The disc is trapped in the drive, and prevents the BIOS from getting past a hardware check.
 
?? You talking about a PC?
