As an FYI, I have no problems using PacketMac with my MacBook Pro and BB 9000.
As for the OP, I suggest you go to your carrier's corporate store and look at and "play with" each device and see which feels better to you. You are really th eonly one that make the decision.
As for battery life, that really depends upon usage. Some get a day or more, others get less. Reception depends on location. Some BBs aren't quite as good as others, but I think have decent reception as long as there is a good signal where you are.
IMHO a QWERTY keypad is always better for typing than the SureType keypad,but that I also a personal decision.
