    Just got a new MBP. Walked into the Apple store and told the guy it was $1749 at MacMall with rebate. They essentially matched the price though I had to pay the sales tax.

    First impression is that this is an awesome notebook. Wife has and older MBP, the form factor of the unibody machine is very nice. I like the glossy screen. The "no button" trackpad is a litte finicky, it's a little hard to double click so I've started double tapping instead, otherwise it's nice how large it is and mult-touch generally works well.

    Many are recommending to get the older models which are significantly discounted, but comparing the two side by side, the unibody model wins hands down, especially on aesthetics. Much sleeker and thinner when closed, even though weight is about the same it just feels lighter/smaller. Runs cooler.

    Now I gotta prevent her from wanting one too...

    trackpad is finicky? you should try the trackpad update via software update. ever since I installed the update, I haven't had any problems with the trackpad.

    I looked it up. "hondle" is not a word. lol.

    tax is not worth paying on high price items (10% in chicago)

    hondle is certainly a word... yiddish for bargaining. Look it up

    I have learned something new today; I, too, had never heard of "hondle" (and I often work as an editor); that's a great word; I'll happily use it in the future.

    Cheers and good luck

    Hmm, most people use the word "Haggle" in terms of bargaining. I too, have never heard of the word Hondle, then again not many of us here understand yiddish lingo, I don't think we're expected to either.
