    Any chance of an "AppleCare endorsed" upgrade to 250mb? $$$ isn't the big issue, for this particular machine I'll pay a little more to stay fully in the flock.

    Hey Concorde, when did you get yours. I just checked my invoice and I saw this



    Should Apple reduce its price on any shipped product within 10 calendar days of
    shipment, you may contact Apple Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775 to request a
    refund or credit of the difference between the price you were charged and the
    current selling price. To receive the refund or credit you must contact Apple
    within 14 business days of shipment.

    The 2.6 isn't the same price as the 2.4, so he wouldn't get a refund. It's like $250.00 extra to upgrade to the 2.6 (only in the US store at the moment).

    Call today, your still in the window of 14 days from Shipment

    Not about the 2.4 to the 2.6 its because the 7200rpm drives were 160 G and now they're 200G for the same price. That's why I'm fired up about. The hardrive I got isn't listed anymore on the site.

    Yes - an idea of UK availability of all this would be nice. About now seems like as good a time as any to replace both my personal MBP's. I'll wait three weeks or so for the inevitable build quality issues for it to filter through to the forums and place an order once I'm satisfied it's not going to be any appreciably crappier than my existing MBP's have been.

    Well I am looking at the specs and the time it would take to get one, and I am starting to feel better about my purchase last night.
    I went with the 2.4 15 inch 160drive.
    Istill feel like DOOH I shoudl have waited just one more day.. but I have this now, and I can get started on my projects that went a month with our attention.
    The machine runs wonderful though and as I get to know leopard more i know I will dig it.
    best

    I am so happy I didn't wait to buy my 2.2ghz MBP. What a disappointing upgrade.

    I agree, I am disappointed, I was expecting something bigger, I guess I have to stay with my 1.83 MBP until the next update.

    ecks, I dont see this as an upgrade though, just the addition of options..

    I got my MBP last Wednesday, and I don't regret about it, paying $200-250 more for 0.2 GHz improvement? hmmmm, it shall take a while to consider :D

    i wonder if the upgrade is worth $250. also no option of a hybrid HD yet. and the ram upgrade to 4GB is still $700. at OWC its $180.

    great notebook but very pricey if you go all the way.

    the question is. does this count as the mbp refresh? or are we still likely to see something in january? i'd hate to wait all the way till january to see nothing. i'm tempted to just buy now.
