Different experiences here.
2 years ago i bought a macbook, played some months with it and
gave it away.  Just didnt provide a replacement for the linux/
windowmaker environmets that have been customized in years to 
fit my needs.  OSX didnt even provide virtual screens at that 
time.  I guess one has to settle with the environment apple is
presenting or has to step away, found not much for appropriate
No intention to start a holy war, but curious to hear opinions
on that ;)

Bought a thinkpad x200 recently, maybe interesting for some people:
kvm can be patched to provide the environment macosx needs to
run.  No 3d and no sound, but network works and it works great 
just to see if something can be compiled at osx or how websites 
look from safari/macosx.
