    Hello there!
    I'm a college freshman and am really interested in buying myself my first Macbook pro for Christmas. I have done some research and chose to buy the high spec 15" Mackbook pro with a 7200RPM hard-drive. Is it a good choice? I will be doing some programming (will use bootcamp and parallels combination for that) and occasionally play a game or two using bootcamp.

    Thanks! :D

    Assuming it fits your budget it's a fine choice.

    a good choose. just have in mind that there is coming a updated version soon. 1-3 months

    But if the one you have seen does everything you need it to and you feel that you will be hep with it. then buy it it is a good machine.

    My MBP is under a month old now. (the new one after Apple changed it for me. first one had a DOA superdrive) for me i could not wait and i can not care less about that there is coming a updated version. the machine does everything i need it to and more.

    as long as you will be happy with it. buy it now.

    Are you on Youtube? I swear I JUST watched a video about this by someone who had a 15" MacBook Pro and got a new one because of the optical drive.

    :p nope. it was my 13" MBP

    good service from Apple on that anyway. first one was 13 days when i treed the superdrive first time. needed to burn a dvd. called Apple and got a new one 3 days later. then tnt called to schedule pickup of the broken one the 4th day. (it was a day of love with 2 13" MBP's)
