When did you use one last? I remember lots of complaints about general UI performance when they first came out, but there have been a lot of OS updates since then.

the question is,when did you use one? im telling you its laggy. some of my colleagues have them. it has nothing to do with updates,they have the latest version. apple even released a safari update to make it "less laggy". but when you resize windows,even the cursor lags behind the window. use mission control.laggy as hell. this is a fact.

I haven't used one long term, just played with them in the stores. I wasn't saying that there isn't lag, I was just wondering because you said you had used one. A lot of your argument seemed to be based around gaming performance which isn't what the OP is looking for.
As far as suggestions for the OP, I'm not really sure. Don't go with a Mac 'just because' or with a Windows machine 'just because'. It sounds like you're already used to working with Windows so if you find a Windows machine that suits your needs and gets good reviews then go for it. Personally I haven't yet found a Windows notebook with a trackpad that's truly as usable as Apple's. The Thinkpad Trackpoint is probably my second favorite.
On the Windows side of things I would probably lean towards a Thinkpad. They have a lot of the same build quality and fit-and-finish as the Macbook line, the problem is that it's kind of hard to find them in stores to try out in person.

The only thing that seems to be comparable from Dell filtering the specs and only about $100 cheaper is about the same as the stock 13" rMBP:
Less powerful processor but more space on the SSD, will sure to have bloat since it is from Dell, and lower resolution. How exactly are Macbook Pro's overpriced again? $100 difference is not THAT MUCH for everybody to be yelling at Apple for being overpriced. They do not have dozens of trials and bloat on their computers, and have different build quality vs Dell and others.
