Here's what was on my table: I'd been waiting for Montevista MBPs, but between the endless wait and me searching for other options, I'm starting to cave and going for this: PC Desktop - ~$1300 EVGA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad 2.4 Ghz EVGA Geforce 9600 GT 512 mb 4 Gb Ram PC & Cooling 750 W Quad power supply w/ Silencer 22" Widescreen Matte LCD I'm building this myself meaning I handpicked everything. And I won't be stuck with Vista. I also have the option of spending an extra $150 and running two 9600 GTs in SLI. :O Add this to: Revised Macbook: $1049 Given they finally get rid of the @#&$! combo drive in the lowest model... I'll buy this when it comes out, probably mid-september as the rumors are pointing to now. TOTAL: $2349 Compare this to the mid-range MBP - $2399 Prices are in Canadian $, but I'm getting the student discount which is included in the prices. I'm seriously seeing absolutely no point in waiting for the new MBPs at the moment when there's this option available. What do y'all think?
