    I couldn't hold out any longer for the Core 2 Duo {Merom} chips so I just went ahead and made the switch from the PC World to the Mac World by purchasing a MacBook Pro.

    It's specs are as follows:
    2.16GHz Intel Core Duo
    1GB 667 DDR2- 1 SO-DIMM
    100GB Serial ATA drive@5400rpm
    SuperDrive (DVD+/-RW/CD-RW)
    Glossy Widescreen Display
    No optional SW
    BkLit Keyboard/Mac OS
    Airport Extreme Card&BT

    And I also purchased the CANON PIXMA IP6220D PHOTO PRINTER that's $99.00 or free w/ the $100 Mail-In Rebate.
    I do plan on using BootCamp b/c I am an engineering student. I only will use Windows for AutoCAD. Nothing Else.

    I am excited beyond belief :D . I cant wait until October 6th, the day my first Mac will be delivered to my doorstep.

    Welcome to Mac OS X! That's a nice machine you have coming. I'm jealous. But I do love my MacBook.

    very nice, I bought a 2.0 model (when it was the highest spec) with 2gig ram.. and one for the wife too..

    soon after, went out and bought a Canon Pixma MP800 printer/scanner, very very nice, and works exceptionally well with the MBP, despite the software not being universal... runs off my airport express too... very happy!

    I love the backlit keyboard

    I would have bought the macbook pro if I had more money. The backlit keyboard is something I didn't know so now i'm jealous. I strongly recommend upgrading to 2GB of memory to enjoy the complete extraordinary experience of your macbook. I have 2gb and now everything runs instantly. Especially safari, browsing takes 1 sec or less, it's ridiculously fast.
    I run like 8 programs at the same time and everything still runs ridiculously fast.
    Congratulation to your new macbook, Cheer !

    Ship Shortened

    Original Estimated Arrival Date: October 6th

    Next Estimated Arrival Date: October 4th

    New Estimated Arrival Date: October 3rd ;)

    Current Status: Departed from FedEx in Anchorage, Alaska.

    Too bad I live all the way in Florida. :(
    Has this happened to anyone else? Ship dates get earlier and earlier?
