Whilst i'm after a Pentax K30 or one of the K5's and will use it for multitude of subjects she wants a 600D for the only reason of its got 18MP. and the only reason she is going for a Canon is cos its what everyone uses. so how do i explain to her its not just MP? i currently have a basic Oly CSC with only 12mp but its more than good enough for looking at the pics on a screen or printing at a reasonable size. she wants it for portraits so is never going to massive posters. i just don't know how to explain it to her.

Why do you want to bother? If that's what she wants, let her buy it. She won't be disappointed with a 600D.

Because the first reason of getting the camera above everything else is its got 18mp cos thats means everything and her second reason is cos its a canon. i just don't want her to buy a camera purely on the amount of mp's. her previous camera is a iphone!

If she gets what SHE wants, she's likely more inclined to use it, to learn about it, to grow into it.  If she gets what you insist she gets, it may not see the light of day all that much.  Some arguments are just not worth having and this is certainly one of them, imo.  If it's going to be HER camera, let her get what she wants.
