I spent about $2100 CAD for my MacBook Pro 2.4GHz base model. Heres hoping it lasts a few years. I will upgrade it to 4GB sometime in the summer. Are you happy with yours? I am but I wish it was cheaper! The screen is great, I am getting used to the glossy and the resolution is higher than the MacBook. The backlit keyboard rocks too. Although I do not require firewire, or really do any sort of music production or video editing work I still chose the MBP.
