    Finalmente...

    I ordered like the week of launch, but then I had to cancel because I decided to go with some Seagate HDs instead of the BTO 500GBs HDs. The re-order was placed around the 14th of august, I think? But, the guy on the phone expedited the shipping by upgrading me to 2 day air, so idk if that helped. I've been waiting a long time! The original ship date after the re-order was 19th of September, arriving on the 24th or so.



    And yes, I'm definitely going to be ditching the default 2x512 Combo and going with 2 lovely 2GB kits from Crucial. Gots to get myself a video editing workhorse!


    Upgrading from my 3 year old 15" PB 1.25Ghz/1.5GB RAM is going to be like giving myself the cardiac paddles and a shot of epinephrine...:D
