I'm glad you like your Linux based laptop, the fellow asked if we liked 
our OSX boxes ... which we do.

But for the record I never stop my OSX laptop, so I don't have to 
restart, (okay for your 1 minute).  Then I don't have to restart my 
database, app server, IDE, open files, ssh tunnels, etc., etc., etc.

My clients are mostly M$ based and I have to work with them, so dual 
booting as you suggest would be more like a 30 minute switch ... which 
I'd have to do several times a day, not just when I show up ... but 
while working on Code, then reviewing docs in Word etc.  I have run 
Linux laptops and they didn't for me due to those reasons already 

So for me it is a better fit, for you Linux is a good fit.

For me my Intel laptops have always cost close to what my current OSX 
laptop cost, by the time I get all of the RAM, decent drive size, 
external connections like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, FIrewire, etc.  So each 
person has a different ROI based upon the work that they do.

For the fellow that asked ... he can use the info provided by both 
sides in determining his own path.
