    If you scoot over to Amazon.com the base model $1999 2.4GHz MBP will ship by April 30 or sooner. If I wasn't such a cheap b@stard I'd scuttle the $300 and buy it tomorrow morning. But it's $300

    You're just looking for someone to tell you what you want to hear so you can justify making a decision contrary to what you think is right.

    Fine, do it.

    Where did you get that ship date from? I just ordered a 2.4Ghz Penryn and the estimated ship date is March 21st - 25th.

    You don't happen to be a student, educator, or a federal government employee do you? I mean, I suppose they don't do much background checks online in any case, but I got my base MBP at the apple store and with taxes it came out to around $1950. I suggest doing that if you qualify - it's win-win, in my opinion. :) You get a slightly cheaper MBP, and you can get it now.

    Mine will be $1744 after rebate for the 2.4Ghz model from Amazon and I usually always have a few Amazon $25 gift certs to use up from my Amazon VISA. No tax and overnight shipping for $3.99 when you have a Prime membership.

    Ah, that sounds like an awesome deal! I say just wait it out if you can, in that case.

    Hi Burningrave,

    I am seeing the Amazon price as 1844 after the 150 rebate. Is there an additional discount for being a prime member to get it for 1744?

    Thanks!

    1844 is the price after rebate. Pre-rebate price is 1994. I just received my Penryn Macbook Pro yesterday. Upgraded the RAM immediatly to 4GB. All I can say is it runs like a dream. :)
