I agree opinion as fact is a bad thing to do.
I would love to have the super reliable OSX partitioning system that corrupts files once a month. My friend has a Mac Book Pro and his file system has had the corruption issue 2 times in a little over 2 months!
Core 2 Duo T8300 (2.4Ghz 45nm)
15.4" WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050)
Nvidia Quadro FX570M (Workstation version of 8600GT)
250GB 5400RPM SATA HDD
Intel Wifi 4965AGN
You pay a 96% premium for the Mac Book Pro in this case. The T61p has a better keyboard as well.
$1750 for a lesser system. Where did you get your price?
