Submission + - Buying a new laptop - Apple with BootCamp or PC?

An anonymous reader writes: So here's the deal — I've finally decided (cheap as I am) that it's time for a new notebook. However, it's been such a long time since I actually purchased one (I usually, as many of you probably do, just get by with whatever I can garbage-pick and squeeze another year out of) that I don't really know what the best way to go is. The low-end MacBook is no slouch and provides a fast processor, good expandability and features in an appealing package at a good price. However, I've also been looking at some of Dell's mid-range business offerings (the D620 in particular) and I can't decide. With the MacBook, I can run Boot Camp and have the best of both worlds — or so it seems — for a lower price. The question really comes down to this: have any of you made this same half-hearted switch, and if so — what problems have you encountered? Does the Mac really run well under Windows? Does it even matter? I await your replies.
