Hey everyone. I might have already stated this in another thread but oh well. I would like to say that last Saturday was the best day of my life! I purchased the base model MBP on sale $200 off at a local electronics store. I absolutely love it! I was debating whether to wait or buy. I bought. Do not regret my decision. Specs are in my signature! Take a look! As for updates, New ones may be a little faster but hey,, thats how it goes in the computer world! This machine is wonderful and will last for a couple years atleast!
