    so I have been harassing the local apple store day in and day out. Had my girlfriend stake the place out every morning when they opened. Finally snagged a MBP 2.0ghz today. Woo hoo, can't wait to get home and play with it.

    I also purchased a stock 2.0 MBP from a local reseller - DEAD QUIET, NO NOISE, NO HISS - impressed with the quality thus far:D

    I'm impressed that people are finding these in stock. Especially when they ship in 3+ weeks online. I guess some people are very lucky.

    Wow, they didn't have a waiting list?

    I'm on the list at my local Apple Store. I think there are 17 people on the list right now for the 1.83Ghz model and 9 on the list for the 2Ghz model. I'm next in line for a 2Ghz MBP.

    Hopefully that'll be tomorrow.

    It's a mixed bag. Someone was reporting that the London flagship store still doesn't have any on display.
