Looking for the MAC Book alternative. Please advise!

Hey Guys!
I'm planning to change my old Sony PCG-81211V notebook for something new. I don't play any games but I use photoshop from time to time when I take nice photos with my camera.
I like the concept of MAC Book, but I'm trying to stay away from Apple devices. I don't like IOSHappy because it's complicated and I don't want to spend my time learning how to get things done there... What would you advise - similar to MAC Book, but based on good old Windows? I was thinking about Sony or Lenovo....

Those makers have economy models too. So just tossing out the maker name isn't going to cut it.

CNET has written up the XPS line many times as pretty close. But all Windows laptops fail to have the support and "it just works" system I get from the Apples.
