    October 15th

    That's the day. I am not waiting any more after that. I will be buying my MacBook Pro.

    My girlfriend is from New Hampsire and is going home that weekend. Since they do not have sales tax, she is going to buy a MBP for me on her way back.

    If Core 2 Duo isn't in by then, too bad. I can't wait past then, it is not worth almost $145 more to wait after that.

    Anyway, what are my odds that my October 13th MBP will be equiped with C2D?

    let me just call steve on his private line.. just a moment...

    :rolleyes: ;)

    just teasing of course. honestly, though, no one knows. i think we're all kind of a bit surprised that the MBP doesn't already have merom. hopefully you'll get lucky and it'll be updated within the next couple of weeks!

    to be fair, though, the MBP is a great machine already. with or without merom, you'll be pleased for certain!

    New Hampshire doesn't have sales tax? Or is it just already incorportated into the price, so you kind of feel better but really you're still paying the tax?

    Hopefully Merom will be in the Macbook soon.

    cost: $1799 stock w/edu discount
    tax in my area 8%

    1799*0.08=143.92
    ~$145

    Interesting!

    And I meant "incorporated", not "incorportated" up there.
