    If Apple comes out with a 15 inch with 2560 x 1600 that changes everything for me. I'd wait for the PC manufactures to catch up and offer something similar before I buy a new machine. My preference is PC over Mac, but I can't deny Macs push the PC industry to offer better products than they probably would have (IMHO)
