the macbook pro (15", 2gig processor, upgrade to 1g ram) seems to be where i'm headed. leaving the dark side of windoze and heading to the light.
(update) -- ordered. plus i get a 4gb ipod for $20 after rebate. so now i'm 'doze at work and cross-platform at home. but then i've always been a multi-cultural, pan-ecumenical, non-sectarian kinda guy.
