    Got my new macbook pro today, replacing macbook 2.16/2/160, arrived today and fixing it up. Way faster, brighter screen, and a beast. It's a sweet machine and glad I got it. Have my 2GB ram upgrade via crucial arriving on thursday to bump it to 4GB. Glad I got it, and not wasting 1 second thinking about a possible penryn upgrade.

    Kudos to apple...

    Awesome!

    You needed it, you got it.

    I DID wait the first time b/c I did have time. But once I needed it, luckily they had just updated to 2.4, and I snagged one. Sweet machine, but more importantly, GET IT IF/WHEN YOU NEED IT. Waiting wears on you. Not to mention, once you start playing with your new toy, you totally forget about what the future may hold! :cool: :apple:

    i reviewed the penryn details and a 20% increase on top of a 2.6 processor is quick enough on my end. w/ 4GB of ram it'll scream. And I'm not 100% positive that the 2.8 will hit the MBP line, feeling it'll be given to the portable instead. I'm cool w/ it.

    Factor in your 2.6 was a BTO and if these new ones are scheduled chances are they'd be in stock. :p You never know :rolleyes:

    going to Europe

    I am off to Europe with my same spec MBP. I couldn't wait because of potential back order and wanting the software preinstall hookup. Mine originally had a hard time figuring out the correct time, getting online, not crashing without music in Itunes, and yes sadly talking to my 410 firewire so I could record the piano. All of this kind of crap for my top dollar had me calling the local stores in search of a return. Well, may I say it's recovered like a cat with no lives spent. I hope for as many years of pleasure with my new baby as most parents expect of there macs...6+.

    P.S. We lost Mike Hughes to Microsatan, may he infiltrate the evil deathstar and destroy them all.

    Man, chidz, you have excellent taste. We have the same comp and the Apogee Duet.

    Nice kit, eh?

    (I just need to upgrade Express to Pro now)

    I'm not sure I get this part. Granted the 2.8 may go into the 17" with the 15" being BTO but since these things are 45nm chips I'd think the 2.6 goes into the entry levels (end up paying less than bto 2.6 and the 2.8 procs go into mid to high-end models

    Not that any of that matters since they're all gonna still be choked by a 800Mhz fsb and 667Mhz Rambus. Montevina would be a better candidate for penryn IMHO. With its 1066Mhz Fsb and true 800Mhz DDR3 support

    I was told at one of the Apple stores that if a new product is released upto 2 weeks after your purchase then you can get it replaced...

    BTO means bull to order i.e a customised machine.

    Configure-to-order. When you specify that you want a non-standard configuration for the item you're ordering online, e.g. a computer. The company then builds the item to the requested configuration.

    I am ordering a CTO 17" Macbook Pro for my friend later today, with the HD glossy screen, and 7200RPM 160gb drive. Will it arrive before September, do you think? Because he flies out to Italy then...
