i agree on the software issue 100%.. if you really look at the macbook pro and the 17 inch powerbook.. i would go with the powerbook
macbook pro only has single layer superdrive
only has a firewire 400 port
needs universal software to run natively.
has not been really tested in real-world settings
powerbooks have dual layer superdrives
15 and 17 inch models have firewire 400 and firewire 800
no need for universal software.. so no wait for it.
has been used by many many happy people..
just my thought..
