As far as I know, Apple is phasing out the PowerPC line of computers. That means no new PowerBooks. Also, Office is Mac OS X native if you didn't know.

Some things, such as Photoshop are currently only native to PowerPCs so that means Intel based Macs, such as the MacBook Pro will have to emulate the CPU instructions. Adobe apps are emulated and from what I understand run at a respectable pace, but the speed isn't amazing by any means.

As far as price goes you may want to wait for the smaller MacBooks and MacBook Pros (if they are indeed seperate) because they will definitely be more affordable.
