Yet, I'm flummoxed. I love my Macbook Pro, and I cannot imagine not having this beautiful piece of hardware in front of me when I am surfing the interwebs. But if I pay the Apple tax for the hardware I'm likely going to use OS X because aside from the philosophical desire to forward free and open software, OS X works really well and I'll probably end up using it since I have the license. I would like to know what notebooks Slashdot readers think are comparable to Macbook Pros in not only their function, but also their form."
