almost makes me want to see what all the hype is about. 

I've always felt that Mac OS is "dumbed down"

Question for MB owners: are there any limits to the functionality when compared to windows? can it run "non-licensed" programs and can i do advanced stuff on it like I can on windows: programming, editing software codes etc.

I'd say I had my case for 4 years, inside the case is another story. Everything else other than a hard drive and my cd drive is less than 3 months old. Oh my speakers too those are also 4 years old.

Didn't know much about Macbooks last year when my college of engineering said not to get one.
Turns out that was BS, and a Macbook would've sufficed.

Anyways, I've had my Vaio FW since Aug. 2010, and I'm loving it. Will definitely have a MBP at some point in the next 3 years though

Sony Vaio going strong after 6 years
Had an Dell since then as well but it was a POS, booted up my Sony after not using it for a year and worked great. Going to be getting a new one in the few weeks though.

Had my HP Dv6000 for about 3 yrs now and pretty much everything in it has died at least once ... The only reason I still have it is because I used the money for a MBP to fix my car and I needed it to continue working on some music. Overall it's been a decent laptop and really nice to look at but all the hardware is pretty much crap as far a reliability.

<1 year. I usually find a good deal on a laptop, use it for a year, flip it on CL or eBay, and buy an upgrade that's about the same price as the one I sold.
Currently, I have a Sony FW series. It's probably the only laptop I've considered keeping for an additional year. It could easily fetch the same price that I originally purchased it for, but it fits my needs so perfectly I can't imagine selling it. Battery life is horrid though (it is a 17" laptop).
