For what? If you're running WinVista on MacBook or regular laptop with same hardware there should be absolutelly no difference.

Rejzor what don't you get ? Different machines, different chipsets, different drivers. MIGHT make a difference as THE DRIVERS may be BETTER written. This is my last post on this as i really don't see why i am explaining this to you over and over. Have better things to do.

Well, MacBooks are no different than ordinary laptops, Intel CPU, RAM, integrated Intel Extreme Graphics X3100 etc, only thing that separates them now is MacOS and visual design.
Not True most of the Chips Apple uses (for example the ones in the MacBook Air and in the Current iMacs and some of the past Xeons in the Mac Pro) are special made chips for Apple from Intel.

Take the current iMac chips. There is no current Core 2 Duo laptop chip with a 1066 FSB, yet apple is selling them  :)
Intel has confirmed they are a special speed grade for Apple. and if you open the iMac and look at the markings on the chip they dont match any current shipping Intel chip :P

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/08/04/28/new_10_5_3_seed_custom_intel_imac_chips_macbook_air_ssds.html

Also ordinary laptops use a BIOS. No Mac has a BIOS, Macs use Intels EFI (extensible Firmware Interface).

So there is a LOT different between a Mac and a ordinary laptop besides design

Well sure ther's a difference. Wouldn't there be if you compare C2D E4300 and C2D X6800 Extreme? Comparing apples (how ironic) with oranges probably ends up with different results...

I have no idea what you just said. But I hate Vista - The layout is annoying, It's slower. And it's hard to find some programs and the icons are too big (For me). But with windows, There's small icons, Great layouts, You don't get locked and Finding things is easy.

It's called a "learning curve"
Something all new operating system need. Windows XP had just as many complaints when it first came out.
