I love Windows 7!  I think it is light years better than Vista and even outshines OS X in a lot of ways.  But there is one reason why I own a Macbook instead of a Windows 7 laptop, the trackpad.  There is not one Windows laptop that can even touch the trackpads that Apple makes.  And that really is a shame!  Some people say just use a mouse instead.  But I like to carry as little as possible with me when I take my laptop somewhere or when I lounging on the couch surfing the internet.
