I just got back from my campus store, I ordered a base 2.4GHz Macbook Pro and I'm getting a free iPod touch! I also just placed an order on newegg for 4GB of RAM for $52! This thing should scream, and from what I've heard 4GB actually helps out battery life quite a bit also. Anyways I'm hoping mine is good to go when I get it (no GPU/Audio issues), but I figure if it's really got problems, I'll get it replaced with the next revision anyways. Should be here in about 2 weeks! Hopefully less! PS: Tax free weekend in VT so I saved over $160 on top of the $200 education discount and $300 free iPod! Amazing!
