I don't consider you a traitor. Ever since I saw the announcement of Boot Camp, I've been considering the same thing. I think Apple makes pretty good hardware... don't care much for Apple software, but then, I've never used it. However, right now if you want to evaluate both, Apple is your only option. Right now, no one can match the form factor of the Macbook Pro and the other specs aren't bad either.
Keep in mind that you don't have the add-ons available like you do for a Dell. There are pros and cons both ways and I hope you are happy with your decision.
For me, I've got a D820 on order and I think (hope) it will be more appropriate for my particular needs.
I continue to watch the migration from Windows laptops to the MBP (now that they released Boot Camp) with great interest.
