New MacBookPro

Yep, I got one. 15" 2.16 Ghz with 2 GB of RAM.

I really must say, if you are an IT professional, or somebody who spends more than a few hours a day on a computer, and you haven't bought yourself a Mac yet, you really must dislike yourself.

Yes, they're more expensive than bargain-basement PCs. Yes, they're still a niche product. But the user experience and productivity boost you'll gain by not having to deal with Windows is unparalled, even if (like me) you're running Parallels for the things you really wanted to leave behind (but couldn't because they're isn't a native OS X port yet).

I'll say this now, and I'll stand behind it: Apple is ready for their comeback. The new commercials are airing, the Apple Stores are packed, and the sales and market share are climbing. They're going to own the home entertainment segment when they finally release some kind of home theatre application. And even without knowing what Leopard will bring, I think we all know that it will make Vista look like 1970s technology again, the same way that OS X neatly trumps Windows XP today.

You have a choice - make it. Join the revolution before you're the last one left behind.
