Default Planning to get a new MacBook Pro tonight, recommendations?

after years of hating on Apple, I now have to get myself a MacBook Pro because what I'm studying in University, them and the rest of the entertainment industry use Mac OS based software -_- (ProTools,Qlab,Final Cut,etc.).
Anyways, I haven't jumped ship to the i7 processors for my desktop yet so I'm just wondering how comparable any of the i7 MacBook Pros (I'm looking at 15" and 13") will be to my outdated desktop (rig in the sig!) and if you guys have any recommendations regarding MacBook Pros.
I plan on adding an additional 4GB of RAM later on so any thoughts of manufacturers, etc. would be helpful as I've read Apple is picky with that.

Thanks guys.

I chose this path instead of getting a non-apple laptop because I find installing W7 with BootCamp is easier than having to find a laptop that has the right hardware and hackintoshing.
