Next HP was bullet-proof and bought a new one after 6 years, gave the old one to my now ex-gf, and it's still going strong as far as I know. My last HP laptop had a monitor cable issue too and I was the one that messed it up trying to fix it.

So, telling me spending $3k on a laptop because it's still working great for you three years later sounds insane to me, especially when I'd have to learn a new OS.
You owe it to yourself to look at the Mac hardware. You don't have to spend $3k to get a good one. You can easily run Windows. I know of at least one person who has an MBP they use exclusively with Windows.

In the refurb section of the Apple store there are some pretty killer deals.
