MacBook Pro or HP EliteBook?

Decision time for my new laptop/ work PC – MacBook Pro or a HP 8540W? I’ve seen a few techies running Windows 7/ 2K8 R2 on MacBooks and just wondering what the REAL reasons are for this (other than a MacBook is shiny and looks cool), or whether there is some real benefit in doing so. Hardware spec wise (and I’m no guru when it comes to hardware), the machines look almost identical apart from the video card. Bottom line is do I stick with the HP/ PC (what I know) or will I really gain anything especially performance wise running Virtual Machines, etc. going down the Mac route.

If anyone can give me any pointers I’d really appreciate it.
