    2.53 13" with 4GB and 250GB HDD. The standard setup. Waiting to get this SATA 1.5GB problem worked out, so I can get the biggest SSD I can find.

    Nope, None yet! I would love a 15" with a anti-glare option but nooooo. I have to spend $2500 for a 17" tank. Hey has anyone ever tried lugging a 17" in the city, traveling, etc.? It sucks! Can't use it anywhere. It's like opening a 1980's Brief case! I love it when you smile to the person next to you on a train, coffee shop, plane, etc. and they give you a look when they realize that there leg has become half of your computer's lap support!

    APPLE!!!! I will pay the $50 for the anti-glare! I'll give you $100 and a kiss!

    Hey, sorry for jumping on your thread!

    got 2.26 13" uMBP with 250HDD upgrade for $45, I will eventually have dual 128GB SSD (optibay) or dual 250GB HDD in RAID 0. I ordered Crucial 4GB RAM to upgrade myself.

    Engadget had a bit today saying that if you order factory SSD, it comes with the 3.0Gb SATA controller, but HDD models get the 1.5...
    Then again, that's linked back to here, but no Apple verification yet.

    If that's true, I would have opted for the cheapest SSD, just to get the 3.0Gb..:mad:

    Is there truly that much difference between the MBP CPU either 2.53, 2.66 or the 2.8. I am looking at the 2.8 model only because it has both GPU's and 512MB instead of just 256MB. I had a early 2009 uMBP with the 2.53 that had the 512 it was great for everything until I had to start carrying it everyday, then I gave it to my older son who is in High School and studying Audio/Video and Photography. I am thinking of getting another in addition to my 2009 Mini, and my 2009 uMB 2.4

    Each Machine has a special place although it looks like my other son will get the Mini, wife will get the uMB and I will get the new uMBP which one, not really sure.

    I can not believe the only one with the 512 is the 2.8?

    I looked at the older refurb models from Apple the 2.53 with the 512 VRAM is $1449 and the model with the 2.8CPU is $1699

    Upgraded (maybe?) from 2.0 Ghz Core Duo MBP to a 13" MBP 2.26Ghz (which was upgraded to 4gb RAM and 500gb Hard Drive)... have yet to fully make the switch as I'm still working on getting files and libraries moved over... biggest difference (in a negative way) I've noticed is the resolution, unfortunately.

    Trying to justify the upgrade from my MBP 2.33 to either the 13 or 15.

    I'm waiting on my 13" mbp 2.53ghz, 4gb ram, and configured with 320gb hard drive. It hasn't been shipped yet. I also ordered with it the bluetooth keyboard and Mobileme.

    If he's smart he'll put the OEM HDD and RAM away, if he ever has to get it serviced Apple won't take kindly to parts that did not come from them being installed. ( so sayeth the clerk today when we got our 13 MBP - he's the one who recommended keeping the OEM parts )

    It makes sense to me.

    It's not true. It's the same false unsubstantiated rumor started here and just going around and around and around and around and around....

    2.26 13" MBP. It's freakin' awesome, and so much better than the previous uMB. Going to upgrade the RAM and HDD later on. The performance is actually better and noticeable.

    3.06 ghz Macbook Pro 15". So far so good. I have an HD so I haven't been bothered by the whole SATA issue, but I hope they fix it.

    The HDD and RAM are both classified as user serviceable parts. They don't care if you've changed them out, unless they are the direct cause of the issue.
