Re: [budapest-rb] Generic laptop question

Hi Viktor,

   I used to use Linux before, various distributions. I was pretty happy. Now I work on a MacBook, first it was a white one, now for over a year it's a MacBook Pro 13" i7.. I'm happier. Linux is fine for development. However, the biggest advantage of a Mac in my eyes is that I did not need to tweak the interface too much, it just works well. The shift in preferences came for me when I had to work for half a year on a Mac ... at the end of the project I did not want to give it back. If you have a chance to try out a Mac for few days, try the experience out.. I'm pretty confident you'll stay with it. Also most of the things you are used to from the Linux world are availaible on Mac as well.

Wishing you the best,

I am asking you Rubyists out there about hardware for programming as I have seen many of you are using Mac laptops. I am in search for a fully Linux compatible laptop, but have not found a fitting one since. Now I am considering to buy a MacBook Pro to do my web development on. Will it fit for a web (Ruby) developer's daily heavy duty needs, with virtualization at hand, for let's say 3-5 years? What is your opinion on this matter? 

Any help and quote is appreciated!
