As I said earlier I'm really not a fan of apple, but I really like the MBP.
So am I getting ripped off that bad if I'm buying the MBP ( I know ill get ripoff anyways buying apple products ) and is OSX really worth it ?
If I was in the market for a $1000 ultraportable, the most powerful option is the Acer 3820TG @ $800. The 'budget' 2nd choice would be the Asus U31JG @ $699. The cool factor ultraportable would be the Asus new U36jc @ $1000 shipped.

if youre buying a macbook for looks, the one u want is the 2011 macbook pro which is already out of your $1000 budget, before sales tax.

linux/ubuntoo can run on a dell mini 10" netbook for $200.
As you can see, there are many equally impressive pc choices for much less, but if youre flowing with cash that is another story.
