Deciding factors: My main reason for possibly returning was portability and batter life. The macbook pro is bigger but not by too much. My battery life has been pretty reasonable. I am getting between 3.5 and 4 hours with wifi and various other things going.

Other factors included the ability to upgrade more over the years to get more out of the machine where I would have been more limited on the macbook. Could not be happier this is my first mac and to be honest I do not see why I would ever go back to a pc. Thanks for the input everyone.
Battery life is really nice.. I just spent over 4.5 hours trying to drain the battery on my new MBP so that I could calibrate the battery. My other laptop.. 17" HP ZD8000 get's about 1.5hrs if I'm lucky...
