    Adrian needs a laptop - something quite high spec - a business end machine.

    He went to PC World ages ago and isn't back yet.

    I'm worried because the last time we went to PC World he stopped and lingered next to








































    the Macs. :lipwobble:

    :unsure:

    The macbook pro is the best laptop ever made in my opinion and as a geek machine it's no.1 Full unix underneath, starts up SOOOO much more quickly than windows machines. Something like 6-8hours battery life

    I've had every powerbook/macbook pro for many years and though I use linux, solaris, windows, macosx, I always come back to my macbook pro for laptop.

    (of course the macbook pro can still run linux so he wouldnt need to stop being a penguin supporter :)

    "Dude, I've got a Dell"... yeah I know it's not a Mac... maybe next time :p The 15" Macbook Pro is extremley shiney and nice... don't give up hope yet guys :lol:

    As windows machines go, this one is rather nice... better battery life than a lot of others of similar spec etc... and suitably powerful. Also qualifies for the Windows 7 upgrade in october.... now before all you mac fanboys lament about the wonderfulness of snow leopard... yes i know! However getting my hands on Windows 7 is more relevant to the day-job at the moment.

    However this thing will be running a flavour of Linux via virtualisation/dual-boot before too long, so i will still have access to *nix goodness even if it is not quite OSX shininess :lol:

    Ohh... thank goodness! I was starting to worry about my arm twisting ability! :whistle:

    Or you may want to consider cygwin. While certainly not a full fledged **Nix installation, it does allow me to get by with a Unix like command line and associated goodness on my work PC without drawing much attention to myself. :hide:

    Tom :)macwave:... I'll keep trying!)

    I can still see the light... the darkside has not totally consumed me yet!

    Cygwin is most certainly going to be on this machine pretty darn quick. I like command line tools that actually do something useful :p

    And X11 support over an SSH connection to my main Linux machine is also handled rather nicely via Cygwin and it's modules.
