no one is forcing you to buy a machine you don't want.
either wait longer. or order online and wait for it to ship.

I don't think there is a "local warranty". It's a standard 1 year Apple warranty no matter where you bought it from.

to be fair I just went to the online store... and the bottom it has "Apple stores around the world" or something like that in the drop down menu... and no Qatar store is listed....

If you're by chance US Military though (huge base over there right?), or know someone military... just order and ship to the APO? (is that what it's called?)

same warranty?
so if i buy a mbp online from apple.com then they send it here in qatar..if theres anything wrong with it i will have to send it back to the US?! XD
do you know how far is that..

End of the story: im buying the 2.4ghz tomorrow...as i have the money now and its my only option and im SICK of waiting.. =)
