    15" Glossy / 2.4Ghz / 2GB / 200GB Macbook Proooooo :D

    Ships by March 3 - 5
    2Day shipping
    Arrive by March 5 - 10

    Total with tax and 2dayship = $1,961.43 with school discount. I was gonna use the ADC student discount but I couldn't wait any longer so I paid the extra money, why not!

    I will eventually upgrade the ram to 4GB and hdd to 500GBs once that Samsung drive comes out.

    This is gonna be my main machine, I am converting from my windows desktop back to os x.
    Handing down this desktop to my brother since the computer he is using is over 10 years old.

    Wee!!

    Cool! You'll love it, but of course you know that, otherwise you wouldn't have bought it anyway.

    Have fun :)

    I just bought one too. After three weeks with this site and two depressing tuesdays I got to use my educational discount for a MBP 15" 2.5 ghz glossy. I find myself checking up on my order status about once a hour which is almost as bad as waiting for the updated MBP to come out in the first place.

    Nice! Enjoy your new MBPs, both. Post again with your impressions once you've had a couple of days to get used to the computer.

    My stock base model MBP shipped last night! :D

    Upgrading from a 1.67GHz PowerBook G4, so this new machine should be a screamer.

    These are great machines. I upgraded from a 1.67 PB and the difference is pretty striking when doing anything processor intensive like ripping DVD's, or anything DVD related...

    Congratulations.
    I just got mine 2 days ago. I kept my Dell laptop just in case i have buyers remorse. Nothing against DELL but i havent even touched it since i got this machine.

    man waiting is horriable. Does anyone know if its possiable to go to go a apple store and pickup the model I ordered online and cancel the delivery from apple.com? Or would i have to cancel my order online, go the apple store and re-purchase it in store?

    I don't think you can order like you would a pickup from say bestbuy.com. What you can do is cancel your order online and go buy one at the Apple store.
