The Macbook Pro is still the best laptop out there! However, be diligent to figure out that the 2.2Ghz model described has been discontinued and has been replaced with the 4 month old 2.4Ghz model... with the SAME PRICE!!!
I have owned one of these computers for the past 4 months... and let me tell you... I am exceptionally pleased. Apple truly out-did themselves with the mac book pro series. These computers can handle just about anything you throw at them. I do many recording and mastering projects on mine, as well as video and photography. The computer handles it all with ease! Truthfully I have only owned PCs in the past... I thought apple's were just a bunch of hype... but I can confidently say that my apple is the best computer I have ever used. Every day I use it non stop and it serves reliably no matter what. I'm already looking forward to buying another one in a few years!!
