Which Mac Laptop ?

I am in the market for a new laptop — the wife’s old G4 iBook just won’t cut it (damned spinning beach ball!).

Last week, we hit an Apple store, all set to buy a MacBook Pro — when they all but talked us out of it.

Any ideas or suggestions? I don’t mind my Dell desktop, but I hate the Fujitsu Windows touch screen notebook. Thus, I will stick w/Apple.

Of the various Apple notebooks, any much better or worse?

Is there any reason NOT to get the 15 inch MacBook Pro?
