    Very happy to report that I got my new MBP this afternoon! I ordered it online on 8 August and got it 4 days later. I was told I would get it on the 21 August. Way to go Apple...already exceeding my expectations.

    I was a little hesitant to order it at first, not because of Merom but because of all the reports of hissing sounds, over heating etc. I have NONE of that. I've left it running for a good few hours already. My vaio which I still have (and only 1 year old) makes a lot more noise and is much hotter. My MBP is very quiet and not hot at all. I also upgraded it to the 7200rpm HD which has added no extra stress judging from the quiet and cool operation. The serial number starts W8632....

    Hope those of you that recently ordered new MBPs are as happy as I am. I have had a little time to play around with it, and I couldn't be happier. Everything DOES just work...(ok, most things do when they're brand new) but everything from the OS to the casing is so beautifully designed. I love my new MBP!

    awesome! thats good to hear! i ordered mine on august 8th also! instead of ordering the 7200rpm hdd i ordered the 120gb hdd. I can't believe that apple told you it would come the 21st and it came in 4 days...did you change the shipping? Mine is suppose to come the 16th and i will be very happy for it to come early! lol

    edit: does fedex deliver on sundays?

    FedEx doesn't deliver on Sundays. I believe they deliver on Saturdays for an extra charge though.

    i did not change the shipping. that's why i was impressed. the shipping was 100% free. though i should mention i live in hong kong and i believe my mbp was shipped from china...still, 4 days is fast.

    ooh. that makes more sense. i just checked the tracking on my laptop and its not too far away from me this very moment...but i still doubt it will get here today...thats why i asked if fedex delivers on sundays :p

    yea fedex only delivers monday thourgh friday for regular shipments and you have to pay extra for saturday delevery.

    to the OP congrats on getting your macbook pro, I got mine a few weeks after it came out and Ive loved it. One thing I would recomend though is a second moniter, there have been so many times that I have been caught thinking..jeeze im glad that I have this second moniter
