However, if you honestly wanted a MBP because you just wanted one then it is your money and enjoy it.
Final Cut was a serious decision in purchasing this, But it wasn't the sole reason I got it.
I also purchased it because I was legitimately interested in OSX (Changing it up) and some of the other programs OSX seems to have exclusively or seems to run better. So far, for why I got it, I'm pretty happy.
I just got it today though I picked it up yesterday (Had work)... Haven't had the chance to buy Final Cut and I'm not sure if I will considering the next version is (rumored) to arrive next week for MUCH, much less cost wise.

Just like SO many people will be building new platforms for BF3, etc.
I've considered doing this but I'm going to have to see how BF3 plays out to be honest, I might just be happy with it on console.
I think, as an "enthusiast user", I've kind of dropped down ever since getting an actual job and education.
