If you are intent on doing this I would wait until the laptops come with 
a g5. They are very nice looking from a fashion victim point of view. 
And the video chat looks pretty interesting (though I would not get a 
.mac account). Sound and video simply sounds and looks much on a mac. 
However, the support for java is a pain in the ass. You have to do it 
'their way' with the jdk the ship and update. They do not support 1.4.2. 
I switch between osx, windows and linux. Windows is always the easiest 
for me with regard to java.
