When the MBP came out early this year, I was thinking of getting one. I found out though that a 64 bit version was to be released in september (around), and decided since I didn't need the laptop right away, I would wait until then. Well now school work has got me wishing I had bought it earlier, and I really can't hold off any longer (I'm using a 400mhz pentium 2). I finally found a really good deal, 2150$ canadian for a MBP base model. So I'm giving in, this is about a 350$ saving over what I should be paying once you factor in tax. And it's brand new in box too! I can't wait, I'm going to get it this monday!
