    After waiting for 6 weeks I now have my MacBookPro.

    Its a bit light on RAM, but I am putting in another 1G tomorrow, this
    should allow Parallels to have a bit more RAM and thus run XP in a
    virtual Machine somewhat faster.

    All in all, thus far and damned nice piece of kit!

    No idea, I am a Mac person and only use windoze for doing CAD work.

    However the benchmark results I saw showed that when it was booted
    directly into XP it was overall the fastest laptop for running Photoshop.

    I will see tomorrow how much the extra ram will help with the virtual
    machine. (The CAD software I use wants 512Mb+)

  4. i upgraded from my dell 8100 notebook, to the ibm t43 and the performance
    increase was good. You always notice a 'snappiness' in the new machines

    Although, I may replace the 5400rpm drive with a 7200.
