yup, mine is in the "sent to manufacturing" state also. i am very anxious to get my 17" especially after being teased by the one i got to play with in the store tonight. grrrrrr. i am so impatient!g0gie said:I ordered the 15'' with 7200rpm HD this morning just as the apple store reopened online. Its currently being "manufactured" hopefully it ships tomorrow. I CANT WAIT!!1
g0gie said:I would highly recommend the 7200rpm for speed. it willd ecreas your battery life by about 5%, but you'll notice the speed boost from the 5400rpm drive. One of the biggest bottlnecks in computing is hard drive speed. Thats why cache and memory speed is so import, and also why 10k rpm drives have become so popular. Loading things will be a lot faster and the cmoputer in general will be more snappier. Of course you could go for the 5400 drive, but the 7200 is well worth it IMHO
yeah, i went with the 7200 for performance. 20gb isn't much these days. 7200rpm is.physics_gopher said:Thanks. Now I'm leaning in the 7200 direction. I guess with a dual-layer superdrive at my disposal, I'll be in no short supply of backup space so losing 20GB isn't that big of a problem. Now I'm set to make an order
where did you see the reviews? I would love to read themiDM said:I blew off these updates until i saw the review of the new powerbook, wow they really did make the screens brighter and added alot of landscape for the desktop, i hope all of you enjoy it!!
Did you pull?tekmoe said:...the girl that worked that said she bought one today and was wishing she could go home so she could start playing with hers. of course, i had to brag and tell her "well, i did the BTO earlier today with the 7200rpm hard drive. "
