Ding ding ding!
Stephen I agree with your critique of unibody design . HOWEVER, I have  
someone who lives in the house who does Photoshop.
That reason alone that makes it worth paying the apple tax.

No I don't like the iOSification od OS X. But there really isn't a choice  
for professional graphics artist.

BTW I just saw a 2010 macpro laptop with 8 gig of ram latest OSX vers 13"  
320 gig hard drive.
What is street value of this machine?
