    My first ever mac, a brand spankin' new 17" unibody MacBook Pro, customized with the 3.06ghz processor and 500gb 7200rpm hard drive, just arrived! I must say, this is the most beautiful machine I have ever owned. It's just incredible. I was beating myself up for spending $2600 on a computer, but now that I see it, it was worth every penny. It took 3 minutes to configure and now I'm already copying over music, browsing the internet, and mostly just staring, jaw fully dropped, at the display.

    Thanks, Apple :)

    Congrats on your new MacBook Pro! I had a similar experience when I got my 15" one a few months ago. Absolutely wonderful machine!:)

    Wow, that's a good price, I would buy it in a heart beat. Too bad I graduated 6 years ago. :eek:

    Sounds like a sweet machine. I have the 15 incher, but I lust over the higher resolution of the seventeen.
