I highly doubt it. He's been on OSX. More likely, Windows 7 will just not frustrate him like Vista did. That's what happened for me. It has a lot more featurse in common with OSX now such as it's faux-dock which make going between OSX at home and Win7 at work more comfy. Otherwise, there's absolutely nothing Win7 offers over OSX other than maybe the window edge snap thing, but that's counter-balanced by it still lacking a proper response to expose.
Edit: And yeah, I really don't get why people are buying laptops now for fall. Haven't you heard of Moore's law? We still have about a quarter of a cycle till school starts. You're either going to get better specs or cheaper prices by waiting till right before you need the thing.
So what you're saying is that Windows 7 is on par with OSX, which was basically the only reason to buy a Mac, since a PC is cheaper and easier to use and upgrade and service.
