Oops, I did it again!

image I just ordered a MacBook Pro!

After using a black MacBook for several months now, I decided to try and switch completely (bye bye ThinkPad).

Probably this is just a desperate attempt to be as cool as the real gang members (1, 2, 3, 4 ...)

So why do I need a MacBook Pro when I already have a MacBook? The Answer is Screen! For my work-laptop I do need more screen real estate than the 13'' of the MacBook offers. Also the non-glossy and LED backlit (its bright, real bright...) is a plus.

Does it mean I abandon Windows? No, I will run Windows in a Virtual Machine (either VMware Fusion or Parallels). I played around with Visual Studio 2008 in Parallels, and I did not experience any problems. There are some benchmarks here, that confirm this impression.
