I currently have a Lenovo T420 and I am very happy with it. However, I really like the MacBook Pro's aluminum finish and sleek and sturdy design. What PC would be the most similar to the MBP in the $900-1100 range?

If you're not in a hurry (that T420 is a solid laptop) you might want to keep an eye out for reviews on the new Samsung Series 7 laptops due out shortly.

I purchased the Samsung series 7 14" specifically for its likeness to the Mac book pro. On paper it was a dream come true. All in all it was a very nice laptop, with the major exception that it contains an inferior wireless card that provides for a terrible connection. After sending direct to Samsung service, they replaced with the exact same type of card and still did not function properly. It was a huge disappointment!

I have read other reviews that said they replaced the wireless card with an Intel card and it worked fine. Hard to swallow swapping out components after you spend $1000+ on a new laptop.
