    Its been a week now and probably 90% of my free time has been spent playing around on new mbpro. Even now I was just going to read a little bit as the battery charges before doing some couch-based internet surfing but couldnt draw myself away. I dont have any problems with mine at all. It runs incredibly fast, quiet, but inefficient(im not getting much done with it around :p ). Im a switcher, was worried about the bugs but decided to trust apple and take the plunge rather than waiting. And...I love my mac. :D

    You kids expect too much at an early age. Many people on here with MBP's are older, and have families and steady jobs.

    There are also the 15 year old spoiled bastards though.

    Buy what suits your needs, don't waste money. You'll need it later.

    Which kids are you talking about? I don't see any ages posted in this thread...or even references that would make people seem like they are in that age group.

    I paid for my mine myself. I could have gotten a refurb 12 inch ibook for $700 but then I would be in vast amounts of debt with college and have nothing this fun to play with. Plus I need this kind of power and the screen since it will double as my TV. I took a year off from school though to figure out what I wanted to do and have been working full time since I got back from Europe last fall. So I had a good income and am by no means putting myself anywhere near debt by purchasing it.

    it isnt really fair to say that all 15 year olds dont deserve or are spoilt when they have a macbook pro. i myself am 16 and am getting a macbook pro as soon as i make a final decision, but its not because i just wana look cool when surfing the web. i do alot of filming/editing etc and need a decent laptop for collage/uni as the software they use isnt advanced enough for what i need. I also have a job lined up for the BBC in the summer, if anything its better to start at an early age. i invest pretty much every penny i make into my setups, so its not as if its a click of the fingers and its there situation. like you said though, whatever suits your needs

    that whole "15 year old spoiled bastard" thing is a little extreme and stereotypical of kids with nice things. Im 15. I'm certainly not spoiled. I work hard. I havnt bought anything over $15 (except on presants for people) since last January when i bought my ipod mini. Last year i was introduced to apple and have been a loyal person since. I was saving for a computer anyway and wanted an apple, but when i heard about the intel macs, i told myself i was going to buy one. Now here i am and im 100 away from the MBP i have been saving what seems like forever for. (I cant wait!)

    Well, back on track, nice MBP :D Since you'll be using it at school and away from it as well you should enjoy the speed of it now but even more after most apps become UB. Nice speakers also :D

    he is just pissed that he had to work so long and hard to get one and you are 16 and get it as one of your first computers. His first computer was probably a commodore he got to use for 3 hours a week in homeroom.
