I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone on Macrumors! I ordered my C2D MBP 2.16 matte yesterday afternoon. I went stock after talking with the computer support people for my department *located convenienly across the hall* and they said they can help me put in more RAM and if I ever need it will do a harddrive swap as well. I am going to spend the extra money (that I didn't use upgrading those options) on an external harddrive to back up, something I've never done before , as well as a nice sleeve and some other fun accessorires. This will be my main computer and it is going to replace my current, if you can call it that, HP pavilion notebook, 20gb, 700mHz PIII processor! My new mac is scheduled to arrive sometime between the 15th and the 22nd! Thanks everyone!
