    Anyone know if you can get the 2.93GHz 15" in store at all or is it strictly website only?

    Yea, it is a special order. They may be able to order one at an Apple Store, but you CANNOT just walk into a store and get one.

    You have to order it, but to be honest it's best to keep your cash for now and update when the mobile i7's are out, as the lowest end should have the current highest end for breakfast :p But it's your cash and your call.

    Macbooks based on mobile Nehalems (probably not i7, because i7 is a desktop chip) won't be out until 2010 though.

    You know - I'm not 100% sure on repeated statements that you can't get different configs instore. When Apple stocked the previous 17" MacBook Pro in store at Regent's Street - they had two models on display. The glossy and the matte version. And of each, they had the standard (2.4Ghz) stocked to sell, and the 1 other configuration where everything else was completely the same, except that the CPU was faster (2.6Ghz). That was it, no memory or hard drive difference. I remember, as I was very close to buying one in store after work, before deciding to wait.

    Whilst you may not get the CPU option this close to launch in store, once Apple fill up in stock I believe that they will have two options for people to buy. I could be wrong on this last one, but I'm just going on what has happened with my previous Apple retail experiences.
