+1 on the Lenovo. My work MacBook Pro recently croaked and, skipping the hilariously ludicrous IT support (Corp. not Apple), I ended up replacing it with a w530. It was cheaper than an equivalent MacBook and easier to update (ultrabay, express card, etc.). I've been very happy with it. Just having actual mouse buttons made it more than worth it. The only drawback I can see is that the screen is not as high res and I don't believe quite as bright as the current MacBooks. But overall, I'd take one of these over the current MacBooks any day.
