    I purchased my 13" MBP 2.53GHz/4GB/500GB in August and it cost $1700, with the student discount and tax not included. I spent ALL my summer money on it (I'm a freaking poor college student)... because I was that dedicated to getting rid of Windows. :p

    About two weeks ago, I picked up two Macbook Pro 13" / 2.53 ghz, 4GB, 250 and 500 GB, one for me and one for my girlfriend. They were $1,200 each because my discount and being bought at the same time, I am the creator / director of a global photo project and we will be traveling for over one year starting New Years.

    We sold our iMac 24" and 15" 2.8 to do the swap. Since buying them, I have installed a 160 GB Intel SSD, 8 GB of ram and put in a 320 GB 7,200 rpm in place of my stock 250 GB in my rig, my gal's is stock. We are all set now!

    Mine was just a couple dollars over $1200 including tax and the free iPod Touch After Rebate. This was for the base macbook pro 13 in September. Then I dropped another hundred on a STM backpack and Waterfield case.

    Got mine in-store. Actual price was £1,500, but the guy who put my purchase through was generous and put me down as a 'business' user for a discount, so I only paid ~£1,430.

    NOTHING!


    Funny story actually..

    My friend dropped his MBP (2.5ghz 17" nVidia 8600 2gb) - took it to apple, they said they couldn't fix it..

    It wouldn't boot at all, wouldn't charge ect.

    So my friend claimed insurance, got a new one and asked me to recover some data from the broken one (I'm the companies IT guy) and in return he'd give me the spare parts.. I thought of using the ram and the hdd for my mac mini.

    So I got his data onto a few dvds for him, then had a look at the macbook, My girlfriend went for a shower as she gets bored of my computer obsession, and during the 20 mins that she was in there, I got it working!

    I had to wipe the hdd, repair it, connect the charging wires that go from the battery to the logicboard which had come loose and then screwed it all back up.

    the only problem with it is a little dark patch on the lcd.

    FREE MACBOOK PRO :)

    Whats the story with Apple replacing the nVidia 8600 macbook pro's? It'd be great if I could somehow get apple to replace mine :p

    So mine was a MBP Classic purchased the week of the new unibody release (Oct 08). I compared the unibodies and MBP Classics side by side and decided that I liked the Classics more. Plus, the following deal didn't hurt either:


    1,999 - original price
    -500 discount because unibodies had just been released
    -100 printer discount
    -100 student discount
    -150 complained about keyboard and trackpad (a week after purchase)

    Mine was $2100. I wish I knew about the price reductions and I would have waited.

    My BadBoy Pro cost me over about 2000 (can't remember the exact figure as I ordered it online). Worth every cent.
