I agree that the MacBook pro is a gorgeous machine. I really, really want to jump into the Mac pool, but here's what's stopping me, in order of importance:
1.) The MacBook pro is a first generation device and such devices are bound to have wrinkles that need ironing out. From what I've read the MacBook is no exception
2.) A dual-boot system kind of worries me, especially since Mac won't be supporting Windows.
3.) I can't think of any functional benefit of the MacBook except for that really cool magnetic plug and the available 7200 RPM drives.
The bottom line is that law school is going to be stressful enough without a cutting edge first generation dual-boot laptop.
Excuse me if I'm proselytizing.
