I mean it sounds promising but going based upon recent history, Intel will always be once step ahead. I know Intel's graphics are atrocious but computers have discrete graphics for a reason.

I also bought a Lenovo x220T for my wife. She uses it for Veterinarian School. Works great for taking note since it is a tablet PC. Specs are identical to my MB Pro, i7, 8GB of DDR3 Ram, and 500GB of space. It's awesome, runs great and is extremely durable.
Both have a long battery life and can be used off and on for a majority of the day.
Either one would be a good choice.

Thank you sir. I really do feel like I am leaning towards a Mac.

If you can, wait for the next generation of macbook pros, they'll feature ivy bridge and ssd's only.
