I'm looking for the closest laptop I can find to a mbp without actually getting a mbp.
Specs should include
15in screen
i5 or i7 processor
Backlit keyboard
Thinner the better

I don't want to start a flame war but at least MBP has unibody construction along with a fantastic trackpad;whereas,Blade has a weird toch pad IMO.
Anyway,I never compare Apple laptops with Windows laptops because they're in different leagues IMO.
Samsung 7 series have a decent price and look quite like MBPs.

To be honest, there is none. I asked this same question a while ago. The whole nature of the system is is going to be different (closed system for apple, bleh for windows), plus apple has the aluminum unibody cases and trackpads.

Acer and ASUS have some ultrabooks coming out that look promising (for around 1000$). Most laptops aren't as sexy as Apple's laptops.
