After many many weeks of waiting, my macbook pro was ordered last night. I finally sold my 1.5 GHZ piece of crap HP for $450 (I got lucky) and gave my parents the $500 deposit on it. The good news my parents told me was that the savings bonds for education that have been growing since I was born will pay for the rest! The configurations of it are as follows: 1.83Ghz Intel Core Duo/VR128MB 1GB 667 DDR2- 2x512 SO-DIMM 80GB Serial ATA Drive@5400rpm SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW) BkLit Keyboard/Mac OS Airport Extreme Card&BT I know, nothing too special, but compared to that HP I have been using (every day for a year...egh ) it will be soooooo nice! Anyway, its "estimated arrival" is May 22nd, but it could be here earlier. I will post a new thread on heat issues, screen brightness, and the fan noise for all of those wondering if those issues have been fixed.
