    eVolcre.......HA....beat you to it :p


    I ended up with the 2.16, and the 7200rpm. The ram I'm buying myself.


    Anywho, one of the first things I'll be doing is installing BootCamp. BF2 on a mac..........My pc is now firewood.

    It's ok, <b>I</b> still consider it the same lappy bday.

    As soon as I'm done trasnferring all of my junk, I'll be loading xp with boot camp (mostly for photoshop....and bf2 :D ) If you have any other apps you want me to benchmark for you in the meantime, gimme a holler.

    You can get 2.16, 7,200 at Apple stores?

    Close to pulling the trigger myself and would appreciate a confirmation on this.

    I DID IT!!!! (my stomach feels funny though. ****. But you're right, now that I'm done I'm relieved. So much research has gone into this)

    I think I need a cigarette or a strong drink though. $3500!!!!!

    Here's what I got



    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!! *insert happy dance*

    No benchmarks needed. Who cares about a 5% increase in speed or whatever. I will need help, however, on the basic set up, what to look for, and all that jazz.

    I still feel like throwing up though. That's a CRAPLOAD of money on a computer.

    Congrats. :) I haven't updated it in ages (meaning no Intel related stuff in there) but maybe it is still of a little help.

    Yes, you can get 2.16+7200RPM HD at Apple Stores...it's the "Ultimate" configuration. I picked mine up last week.

    does the ultimate configuration (2.16 & 7200) include 2gigs ram? id rather go pick up my macbook from a apple store and make sure i get a W8613 ;)

    also, can you get the education discount from apple stores?

    On hardware, yes but not on software. Plus, you definitely need to bring your college student ID.

    As a heads up, the Apple store claims 24hour shipping, but when I placed my order it isn't shipping until the 12th!!

    Mine is definitely a BTO though. I went with the 2.16, 7200 RPM and the 2 gigs RAM. Wonder why its shipping late ...
