I'm planning to buy a new laptop for my school which I would be going back in next few months. As I have an interest to write application for iphone/ipodtouch, I'm also considering on Macbook pro as well. Currently, I have two serious contender in my mind;One is Sony VAIO VGN-FW465J and the other is, as you can imagine, Macbook pro 13". The reason I'm considering on Sony is, it has better spec(Blueray Reader, 16" screen, 4gb Ram, dedicated video card with 1gb ram) with $350 less than Mac. And also, when it comes to quality, as far as I know, Sony is no slouch either. So, my question is, should I just buy Sony/Leopard and use VMware for emulation. Or, should I just buy Mac instead so that no emulation is involve in development? Any two cents would be highly appreciated. On a side note, I heard new Macbook is just around the corner. Is that true?
