Actually it is. I used to be a hater as well, until Windows 7 disappointed the hell out of me and pushed me in Apple's direction. The build quality of the unibody macbook pro's are 2nd to none, OSX is a delight to use and it works brilliantly with the multi-touch trackpad. I get around 7 hours of use out of the battery between charges and having had the back off it to upgrade the hard drive, I can see that it is very well put together and thought has gone into its layout. The screen is fantastic too. Of the three platforms I'm currently using, the mac is in a different league as far as I'm concerned. If it wasn't for games I wouldn't bother with Windows at all.
