Hey guys. I finally took the plunge and purchased my first Mac. It purchased the MBP 17" unibody design. I read a lot about delays in shipping on various forums, so I decided to get the MBP bone stock. I was considering pre-installed iWorks and an upgrade to the 7400 rpm HD, but decided against it. I know I could've saved $30 on the iWorks, but shipping would've been delayed 2-3 days. Instead, I just went with the free shipping (saving $27). The site says: ships w/in 24 hrs. and delivers Jun 16-19 (for the MBP and iPod touch) and delivers July 2 for the printer. I wasn't able to get the rebate for the iPod touch or printer yet? I think the site said that ALL items have to ship first, b4 I could apply for the rebates. I am very excited about joining the mac family. I have played with macs and really enjoyed the graphics and ease of use. They just seemed too expensive to me. But, after reading about all the benefits of a mac vs. pc (thank you), I decided to switch.
