X3 on the MacBook Pro as well. My 2nd favorite laptop of all time was my
Sony Vaio superslim PCG-505GX (PII, 64MB RAM, 2.x GB hard drive upgraded
to a whopping 6.4GB, and 13" screen). Pity Apple doesn't make a MBP with
the specs mine has in the form factor my old Sony had.

I run multiple Linux/Windows VMs using Fusion with no problem, the battery is great, and the screen is amazing. In my opinion, the MacBook Pro is the most versatile laptop on the market. It can run Mac, Linux, Windows, etc all on one piece of hardware.
