The MacBook Pro looks really nice, solid, well built, but then they always have been, but as usual price wise it is way over the top, leaving it accessible to the select few or those that really hate PC's Ivy Bridge processor I7 already on many PC's along with the graphics card specified. Why only 4Gb of RAM, and on the entry level only 512Mb of Graphics memory. High end at least gives you a Gb. Personally if I want to spend that much I want to customize the system, go for 16 Gb minimum of Ram and 1-2 Gb on the Graphics card, so the machine will really handle the computing I do.
I truly love the design that the boys from Apple come up with, I just feel that they are always a couple of steps behind on the Horse Power, obviously their OS's are great but seriously why skimp on Power?
