    Hey guys! I'm kind of new to the "Mac World", and I just decided to purchase a Mac! I am thinking about getting the 13 inch Apple MacBook Pro, with 2.53 GHZ, 250GB Hard Drive, and 4GB Ram. I am a new Mac user just coming from using a PC, and I think Macs are way better. I was thinking about ordering it on the 17th or 18th. I am really excited! Just letting you guys know...

    Congrats...

    I myself bought the 2.26GHz 13" MBP yesterday :). I've got it for about 24 hours and I LOOOOOVVVVEEEE it :D.

    I myself don't think that it's worth to spend $300 more for only 250MHz faster processor and more RAM/HDD...

    What I'll do is I'll get a 500GB HDD from Newegg for about $90 install it and next year when the 8GB RAM prices aren't that crazy I'll upgrade to 8GB of RAM for let's say 100$.

    So for $100 less I'll have way better notebook in RAM/HDD and only 250GHz slower... which does not such huge difference :D.

    I ordered a MBP 13" 2.53GHz, 500GB HD, 4GB RAM on June 9... next Saturday (July 18) I get to see it (I currently live in the US but wanted the keyboard in my native language, Swedish, so I had my parents order it for me and keep it safe until I could return... which is next week! W00t!).

    (Yes, I drool over the Mac website a lot to keep myself from going nuts. I want my computer NOOOOOW.)

    Ehm... this is my way of saying "welcome to the Mac World, dude". :) I hope you enjoy it when you get yours.
