Here is my issue and hoping someone can suggest a good solution. I'm in Canada and the prices have not adjusted here on the 17" Macbook Pro's. It is still $300 more than the US model. I thought about driving over the border and picking one up from either a Apple Store in the Seattle area or another big name store such as Best Buy. But I wasn't sure if I can get a model with the 160GB 7200rpm HDD and glossy high res screens straight from a retailer or just on Apple Store online? Are these options only available online? Saving $300 helps towards these options or using it for Applecare, so that's why I'm stuck on where to buy. My next option that I just thought of was to call Apple Canada to ask if they have adjusted the prices to order by phone but not the website yet. But maybe that's wishful thinking?! Thanks guys for the replies.
