    At last, the wait was worth it, and better than expected.
    Upgrades and PRICE DROP.

    To all the haters that bought recently and swore that this would never happen --- Oooops;)

    I may even get a 15" now. 8 am tomorrow - here I come:D

    A friend of mine is goign to kill me now, he bought a Al MacBook like 2 1/2 weeks ago....

    Although I havew to add, that those updates came in as a very unexpected surprise. I think no one expected SD slot, or an update of this kind right now.

    I bought a refurbished unibody 2 Fridays ago and for a moment it stung BUT I needed something to replace my old Dell laptop and I'm completely happy with my purchase. Complaining when you can (a) be happy with what you have or (b) return and exchange what you just bought is pointless.

    I have to admit I was one of the naysayers. I didn't think they would announce changes to the 15" MBP's. Released in Oct and I bought early Dec. Then spec bump in March to match 17" and now bumped again in June with a price drop! Makes my 4GB RAM crippled 2.53 MBP for $2499 a kick in the pants. I did only pay $2100 for it but still.

    Sweet baby jesus I waitied so my 14 days would be within the keynote time because I had a feeling there might be a slight refresh. This is a HUGE update. Not only will I get a much faster macbook with a longer battery life I will save a bunch of money too!

    no seriously, does anyone know how soon the store comes back up after updates? Hours, days?

    So you can exchange it then!

    you can't look back when you buy laptops.

    I got my 2.66 2 months ago. I chose this one over the 2.4 due to the 8GB limitation.

    Sure, it sucks that the 3.06 high end is now 2,299 vs 2,249 (what I paid for the 2.66), but at least they're formally acknowledging the 8GB limitation!

    Unless you need the ExpressCard slot. That was a dumb move, Apple!

    Well, you either have one or the other, but you can't have both.


    Seh, there will always be people complaining....

    Pretty much. It's too expensive and time consuming to be constantly chasing technology.

    You could return it. If it hasn't even been delivered yet you might get the updated version.

    Really? Apple hasn't even shipped it yet, even though we ordered it four days ago.

    I'll check the online Apple Store once it is open again, or maybe I'll call Apple or something.

    I don't think anybody expected anything like what Apple introduced today. Price drops? Are you kidding me?????
