MacBook Pro

With me getting Wi-Fi broadband, I more than ever would like a laptop, and with me getting accustomed to a 4600 Dual-Core desktop with nVidia 7600 and 19" TFT - the laptop would require that same feeling of state of the art sexiness.

With the price of the XP laptops I liked the look of, being in the region of £1800, I figured I'd be as well going with one of those MacBook Pros I've been hearing so many good things about. (Note that my knowledge of Macs is limited.)

The price, including VAT, is £1,899.00 and has the following specs:

17-inch widescreen display (1680x1050 resolution)
2.16GHz Intel Core Duo
1GB (single SODIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
120GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive
SuperDrive 8x (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory
One FireWire 400, one FireWire 800, and three USB 2.0 ports
AirPort Extreme (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth 2.0, Apple Remote, Power Adapter, Battery, built-in webcam, OS X Tiger, iLife '06

It needs to be noted that I currently don't have that sort of money, but hopefully soon I can make the purchase.
