    I have a MacBook Pro and love it. No problems. Upgraded RAM to 16GB recently.

    I have no regrets with my Macbook Pro. I don't think I could ever go back to a PC. I have been running it for 3 years and its just as fast as the day I got it.

    Like everyone else said get the Macbook Pro, you won't be disappointed at all. Macman said it best, once you get a Mac you won't go back to PC. I have a 21.5" in iMac and it is the best purchase i've made in a while.

    If your dead set on running a Mac OS but on a tight budget, just pick up a cheaper Windows laptop and either dual-boot or make a hackintosh.

    ^Yeah making a Hackintosh is way easier than it used to be. There are several great step-by-steps out there.

    That's a good point too.

    I was actually going to suggest this. I have a mid-2009 model with 8GB of RAM and it runs everything I do with ease.

    I'll counter what everyone else is recommending:

    Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga - comes in right at a grand.

    I got mine back in January and love it. It's super thin, top notch build, and the hybrid tablet ability makes it really flexible. Windows 8 runs very smooth and efficiently, I don't use metro mode much but desktop mode is great. It does all the typical microsoft office and web tasks without blinking an eye, and it's been running Photoshop really well for me also. The IPS screen has nice rich colors and a wide viewing angle. The only thing it's missing is a backlit keyboard, but I've loved it since buying it.
