    Does anyone have any idea as to when we can buy these in our local Apple Stores?? I'm on a list and they just tell me "we will call you when they come in" and "1-3 weeks" and "the end of november" I would like to know if it would be a better idea to just order online... Thanks

    He posted in the MB/MBP forum. I think he meant MacBook Pro.;)

    My Apple Store only got the 15" so far, but that's in Denmark so:D

    I guess that should have been a clue. -10 points for me.

    None in my Apple store - about a week ago i was told to expect them in three weeks (but with some shipping i'd guess we'd get them sooner).

    I picked mine up last night at the Grand Rapids Michigan store. Totally thrilled with it. I was on a call list.

    I was originally going to buy a 17" MBP and so I had my name on two stores lists. Unfortunatly I had to buy a computer before the 17's came in. (got a 15 and I love it.) Yesterday I got a call from one of the two apple stores that I was on the list at, and yes they had gotten about 5 in. I live in Minnesota.

    I hope to get one this weekend (Friday-Saturday), if not I´ll have to wait a whole month :(

    I´ve been reading several stores all-around the country have gotten a few shipments. At least Apple has a bunch of stores in South California (San Diego area).

    Just picked up mine from Apple Store, Topanga - Canoga Park, CA. Northridge also has them.

    Matte, stock configuration.
    This one's perfect (normal notebook bright area along bottom). No dead pixels. Nothing abnormal about "grain" - looks like a LCD. Store too noisy to tell anything about noise.

    I say "this one", because the the first one I looked at (yes, they had more than one), has blochyness to the screen. There was a thumbsize bright area in the upper right corner, and 2 brighter areas left and right of center. The UR "blotch" was too much for me to accept - especially comparing it to a CD 17" they had on display. Anyway, just swapped machines right then and there. Much better finding out right at purchase time - especially since I live 90 miles away.

    Now on to migrating from my PBG4. Oh - and "woo-hoo".
