What are the things holding you back that you're waiting for? They don't have to be a big deal, considering that it's your choice as a buyer. Some things may not matter to others that matter to you. I got a glossy screen on my MBP (I totally don't care whatsoever), and there are others that won't touch anything without a matte screen. You get the idea. I'd like to get one for traveling, but I'm waiting for 4GB RAM and better video ability (nothing nuts, but just the ability to watch a lot of video without overheating problems - WITHOUT 3rd party software. It needs this from Apple). When that gets sorted out, I'll bite. The prices are great, the 2.13GHZ is plenty fast, and the SSD performance is great. I still think it's one of the sexiest laptops out there.
