With the coming tax season and the new Intel processors...I will be having a bit of money burning a hole in my pocket! I need advice for a new laptop that is somewhat small/light (I have a 17" beastly older everex right now). I was thinking about a macbook pro(my fiance has one and we both love it), but they aren't updated with the new intel processors yet, so I'm a little bit hesitant since they will be outdated rather quickly. I also started looking at a sony vaio, but I've never owned a sony cpu before. Anyone have any other recommendations? I will be partitioning the hard drive (or using two hard drives if it comes with it) to dual-boot with a Ubuntu partition for Linux fun! I would love to run mac os x as well, but I know without a hackintosh that is tough to do.
I'm open to suggestions!
