I'm looking into getting a laptop so I can do basic work when away from my office. This would include:

- Office 2007 mostly for email (Outlook)
- CS3 Suite (quick changes in DreamWeaver and Fireworks only when needed)
- web browsing

The reason I ask about MacBook Pro with Windows 7 on it is because it's hard for me to find PC laptop that I like. The problem is that most of them are having really cheap look with that piano finish around the screen which makes me sick.
One that I liked was HP DM3 but I'm not sure if its Intel Core i3 380UM processor at 1.33 GHz will be good enough - I don't want to hate it. The rest is good, 640GB hard drive and 4GB f RAM.
Is anyone maybe using this particular laptop?

Thanks

well im looking up a macbook pro 13.3 and im assuming you are willing to spend $1100 for a notebook which is totally insane but ok.

here is something faster and bigger then both the HP and apple with a better price tag hanging on it.

[tigerdirect.com...]

$699 would be the max i would ever spend on a portable, other wise hit up IBMs referb section and pick youself up a nice thinkpad for a really great price!

Thanks for recommendation but 15" is too big for me to carry around. Plus I can't stand that glossy black.

You're right about amount of money for something that will be used only when on the road which does not happen very often in my case.
Still, I want to like it.

hit up the referb thinkpads they are all business no shiney b/s.

sure you can scoop up what you are looking for and keep 75% of that cash in the bank.
