Exactly. Comparing a Mac anything to a Windows anything is like comparing automobiles to boats. Sure both can get you around but they work better in different situations (water vs roads). Sorry that was not a good analogy but the best I could come up with.

Unless a computer is directly trying to compete with the Mac like the Samsung Series 9, the differences are far more numerous than the similarites.

If you play games, G74 hands down. If you want a powerful notebook for a good price, G74.

If you want a laptop that's powerful enough to do video editing and offers great battery life and portability, Macbook Pro. If you want a laptop with minimal software maintance, get a Mac. If you want a laptop that will have a high resale value, get a Mac.
