Hi everyone, I posted this in the programming forum, but thought others might be interested also: just wanted to give you all a heads up if you are interested in the new macbookpro: An Apple Developer Connection Select membership costs 500$. However, once you are a select member, you can buy the new macbook pro at a discounted price: The low end costs 1599$, which means you "only" pay 100$ for the membership. The high end is a real treat: It costs select members 1999$, which pretty much means the membership is given "free of charge". There are other deals for other machines, but none are as good as the high end mac book pro. http://connect.apple.com Oded S.
