    Hey guys,
    Since the new mbp's are coming out many retailers are dropping the price of the old ones to clear stock. That's how I was able to buy me a 15" model for only 1449 euro (down from over 2000 euro last week)
    As an ex-macbook and ex-iBook user this is my first pro machine, so far I'm loving the build quality with the backlit keyboard and huge screen (compared to what I'm used to)
    I went for the matte display since my desk is next to a big window.

    Anyway, I'm sure nobody cares about this, but just as everybody is getting psyched about the new macbooks I'm discovering the "old" model :)

    That is fantastic news, congrats on a stunning machine, I am waiting by the door waiting for my new 17" to turn up. I went for glossy as I find it easier to read outdoors. Congrats and enjoy your new machine.:D

    Congratulations, and welcome to the world of Mac Book Pro; iI did the same thing myself around six months ago, and it's a terrific computer. May both you and your computer live long and prosper together.
    Cheers

    To be honest - you wouldn't notice much difference. It's really just an 'update' rather than new laptops. Besides the whole matte/gloss issue as you have the model with a matte bto option.

    Congrats :)

    I'm still pondering whether I should get the 17" or a refurb 15" in matte atm.

    Congrats!

    "Old" it may be, but it's a great value for a lot of power.

    Haha, thanks! Well I took a 3 year warranty that includes applecare, theft AND accidental damages, so the marriage should at least last 3 years which is pretty long by todays standards ;-)
