    Whens your ship date? If you ordered the 17in hi-res you probably won't be getting it until April.

    Is this your first Mac? It so much fun to get a new machine. If you haven't had a Mac before, you will have a blast exploring OS X and trying out all of the new things you will find.

    Have a great time!

    This will be my second mac...I am currently typing on a first gen blackbook. With it's Core Duo processor. It's a great machine!

    Has served me well and I can't wait to get the MBP.

    I am heading off to college in September but was in need of a new computer since my mothers laptop died and she will be getting to use this one when my MBP arrives! So I got my education pricing on it :D

    All hail the all mighty :apple:

    I can't wait for it!

    I am in a like situation. This will be my first mac computer, which I ordered on Feburary 26 when the laptop was updated.

    I ordered a 17" hi-resolution screen.:D
    According to Apple, the laptop will be shipped by the 18 of March and arrive by the 21 of the month of March.:(

    Congrats on the purchase. I remember when I when from the consumer model (ibook G3 at the time) to the pro (PowerbookG4). My wife has a macbook so I get to use one quite often but I would never trade my 17" High Res MBP for anything else.

    Yeah from all that I have read it is a great machine!

    I am going for an IT degree at school so for me I wanted the power since I multitask a lot and do a lot of picture editing and the such. Plus it can run windows (ugh) and Linux so I will be able to get some time in with all three OS.

    Nice machine!

    I know the feeling because I also upgraded mine from CD Blackbook to MBP not too long ago.

    Congrats!

    My shipment has not been updated since it was shipped on 6 March. I guess I'll have to wait until Monday or something.. :/

    try http://www.simpletracking.com/

    if your MBP has moved, they'll know about it. I dont understand why they are more up to date than Fed-Ex's own site.

    I can try simpletracking, but my MBP are going to Sweden, Stockholm.. So I don't think simpletracking is going to work.. Sorry for posting it in this thread. :/
