I have the HP dv6205us. T2060 C2D 1.6ghz with 1.5 gig of ddr2 667 ram and a 80 gig HD. The video comes from Intels chip set. I'm running vista also. In 22 seconds my laptop goes from high performance on to totally off.
My secret?
Routine maintenance.
Disk Cleanup
Delete browsing history
And defrag, defrag, defrag
Any laptop will become a POS if you don't take proper care of it.

As for mac's, any platform is going to have good points, and bad. It comes down to what you want to do and what platform has the features you want or need. IMO it's not that mac is better than a pc over all and vice versa. Just find the one that fits your wants and needs.

Check out this page.................... http://blogs.zdnet.com/Apple/?p=1324

There is also a (long and boring!) thread about when the new MacBookPros will come out in the MacRumors forum. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=422791

No one seems to know for sure when they will come out, but I think that it will probably be sometimes in June.
