    Amazon had the best price by far!

    bought the low end 15" MBP
    8GB Crucial RAM to go with it
    Speck Velvet black case
    Leather palm protector
    MiniDisplay to HDMI adapter with sound
    Amazon HDMI cable 6.5'

    joined Amazon Prime, so free 2-day shipping on all of it.

    All for $1998.57 no tax

    Couldn't find any other online retailer that could touch these prices. I might have been able to save $10 by going through Newegg for the ram, but the shipping was 5-7 days. Convenience weighed out.

    I'll buy the Applecare a month before my year expires. Amazon has that for only $282.73 vs. $349 anywhere else.

    Just wanted to give you guys an FYI

    I am so excited to get my first Mac in 2 days!:)

    I found that to be extremely easy. I just used Home Share and loaded all the music right onto my mac from my old PC. worked flawlessly. Took a little, but worked perferct.

    Awesome. Feel free to PM me if you need any help. Switching from Windows to Mac can be daunting at first but you'll never go back!

    Very nice, gotta love Amazon. I bought my mbp from them as well. They have great customer service, especially with laptop purchases. I had to return my mbp once, they shipped me a replacement"next day air" and paid for return shipping no questions asked.
