GISFilter: Will ArcGIS run smoothly on a bootcamped MacBook?

I'm a geography student with a brand new student version of ArcView 9.2. I'm in the market for a laptop. I'm also a Mac nut.
As it turns out, ArcGIS is XP-only. Will I regret buying a MacBook, setting up BootCamp and running the software on the partition? Or am I genuinely better off with a PC for GIS work? What should I be looking for in a laptop?
Budget is around the $1500 mark. Portability takes precedence over screen size. Thanks!
