    I just ordered it last night, supposed to arrive on the 28th... that wont come soon enough! Anybody else have a 17" and have any reccomendations? I was looking at the Booq XL backpack+17" Sleeve deal, you buy them and get a free iPod case for $220, any other reccomendations on things to get or try once I get it next week? thanks!

    Congratulations! The only way I could get a 17" MBP would be to sell my soul to the devil.

    when i ordered mine i also ordered a 1gb stick of ram from 18004memory.com and its working flawlessly along with a BT600 and ScreensavRz from Radtech.us. I had a booq combo for my 12" PB and as soon as the 17" MBP becomes readily available from them, i'm going to pick one of those up. Those are my recommendations and good luck to you, you will love it.

    Nice!

    Did you look at the 15" before going for the 17"? I've always been torn between the two. Still, enjoy it! :cool:
