Hey, I was just wondering if anyone was in the same position as me. I am interested in ordering the new MBP Pro base model (my first Mac!). I was particularly interested in the discount offered by Amazon (and MacMall) on this item. Anyways, I have been impressed with Amazon in the past...whether I have had problems with an item or whatever...they have always made it right. However, I am really disappointed that my recent order with them is not scheduled to ship until Dec 8th - 31st. I am seriously considering switching my order to MacMall...since they can ship within the same business day. I have read some posts on here about people discussing MacMall, but can anyone recommend whether they believe this is a good idea...or whether I should just wait for Amazon. I realize that the threads on here about people complaining only represent a small portion of the new MBP owners. However, I do have some reservations if I should have a problem with my new computer. Thanks in advance.
