    Well I just ordered a 2.53ghz 15" MacBook Pro online, upgraded the HDD to 320 gb 7200 rpm and put the anti-glare on it. Was just curious what experiences people have had with their custom orders, and yes I know it is Apple and still the same great product so there really shouldn't be any difference. Was just curious what you guys thought.

    PS - Please no heckling on waiting for Arrandale, yes I did need a new laptop and couldn't wait a couple weeks, month, or whatever it would be.

    My first PowerBook and my MP were CTOs and they've been great. The issue with my MP had nothing to do with the upgraded video card. I think you're fine.

    My iMac is BTO as the GPU is upgraded (from GT120 to GT130) and have had no problems with it

    It will come from the exact same place a standard one would, except the standard ones are already in the US available to ship, whereas CTO are done in China, so only difference is the shipping time :D
