- Money - As with most Apple products, their notebooks too come for a premium price.
- OSX - Have been used to Microsoft's OS for the past 13 years. I knew if I choose a mac, it would be worth unlearning for the best.
- Softwares - Wasn't sure if I could get same or similar softwares for a mac.
- Support - Apple still doesn't have its footprint in India, but this gave some glimmer of hope.
If I made my mind on the M factor (which would also resolve the Support factor), the air wasn't clear on remaining two factors - OSX & Softwares.
Rory, my colleague and mac fanboy, cleared all my concerns regarding OSX and the softwares available. I thank him for sharing the time & info, which made my decision a lot more smoother. He hasn't looked back @ PC since he switched & guess its the same from me.

But the sad reality is.....I need to wait 20 days to lay my hands :(
