Congrats!!

How long did it take from the time you ordered it? And was it standard shipping or . . . ?

I'm impatiently waiting for mine!

I just went with the standard shipping, it shipped on the 7th, and got here today the 12th. So 5 days. Not bad.

Glad I went with the wifi card and HD video card options as well :)

Yea, I hope so. Ordering 2 SSD's later this week, and 2 1.5TB drives. Should have plenty of space for photography / music.

Right now I have an 80GB X-25M in my MBP, so I was thinking of going with 2 160GB X-25M's in my MP. Or maybe just get 2 32GB X-25E's. Not 100% sure yet. But, speed is always nice to have.

You must be loaded. I wish I had that kind of money.

Haha, you guys are crazy. Any ideas for a good setup drive wise? I really would like to have 2 SSD's and 2 bigger drives for scratch / misc stuff, and the other with pics and music. My D700 pics in raw format are huge.

I thought I was jealous when I saw the MP, but then I heard the word "D700". Any chance we would swap lives? :)

Since you most certainly have the dough, why not get like 2 or 4 of those top of the line ATI cards? I forget their models.

Yes, just a toy. Sorta, I make some money with photography. The MBP wasn't cutting it anymore. Needed to mass quantities of cropping and watermarking.

Eh, it can be. Not always. Just when doing mass amounts of photos. Once I get done with all of the editing and want to watermark them after all of the color correction and minor stuff, I like to just watermark all at once it gets the MBP screaming like a jet!

For your line of work, wouldn't it benefit you to have more than one LCD? I know a photographer who has two LCDs with one oriented in portrait.
